Bespoke Sedum Roof Bin Store for Prince Thorpe Foundation

Case Study


Prince Thorpe Foundation

Lead Consultant:

ATA Architects

Project Overview:

Bollard Street Ltd was commissioned by the esteemed Prince Thorpe Foundation to design, manufacture, and install a bespoke sedum roof bin store in Rugby, England. The project aimed to provide an aesthetically pleasing and sustainable solution for accommodating the school’s refuse and wheelie bins within the historic courtyard of their prestigious building, which dates back to the 1860s.

Project Description:

The completed bin store, designed and executed by Bollard Street Ltd, showcases an unassuming yet innovative design. The focal point of the structure is the ‘living green’ sedum roof, which not only adds a touch of natural beauty but also offers numerous environmental benefits. The sedum roof acts as an insulator, reducing heat gain and loss, while also aiding in rainwater retention and promoting biodiversity.

To ensure seamless functionality, sliding doors were incorporated into the design to facilitate easy access for waste disposal and bin maneuverability. The careful selection of materials and finishes allowed the bin store to blend harmoniously with the historic surroundings, preserving the architectural integrity of the Prince Thorpe Foundation.

Project Execution:

The project commenced with thorough consultations between Bollard Street Ltd, Prince Thorpe Foundation, and ATA Architects, with the latter serving as the lead consultant. Through collaborative discussions, the team defined the project goals, budget, and specifications, ensuring the bin store design aligned with the Foundation’s vision.

Bollard Street Ltd utilised their expertise in architectural design and sustainable construction to create a bespoke solution tailored to the unique requirements of the Prince Thorpe Foundation. The design process involved considering factors such as load-bearing capacity, drainage systems, and aesthetics to achieve an optimal solution that seamlessly integrated into the existing courtyard.

The manufacturing phase showcased Bollard Street Ltd’s commitment to quality craftsmanship. Skilled artisans and technicians meticulously crafted the bin store, ensuring precision and attention to detail at every stage. By adhering to industry best practices and employing state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, the team delivered a durable, robust structure that would withstand the test of time.

The installation of the bespoke sedum roof bin store was carried out with minimal disruption to the daily operations of the Prince Thorpe Foundation. Bollard Street Ltd’s experienced installation team meticulously followed the project plan, ensuring a seamless integration of the bin store into the courtyard. The final result not only met but exceeded the expectations of the client, offering a visually appealing and environmentally conscious solution for waste management.


Bollard Street Ltd’s successful completion of the bespoke sedum roof bin store project for the Prince Thorpe Foundation stands as a testament to their expertise in design, manufacturing, and installation. Through collaborative efforts with ATA Architects, they delivered a solution that seamlessly merged sustainability, functionality, and architectural integrity.

The innovative sedum roof design not only provided an aesthetically pleasing addition to the historic courtyard but also contributed to environmental sustainability by promoting insulation, rainwater retention, and biodiversity.
