About the Vertical Garden at the Check Point BuildingIn the building of the giant Check Point security software, in the Bitzaron neighborhood, one can see how the retrofit process was carried out, in which buildings are upgraded, expanded and renovated, and at the same time turned green.
The classic example of this is the green, eastern wall of the new wing in the building. It creates Check Point's vertical garden. This garden is a kind of 48 meter high vegetation walls, with a large roof garden at the top of the building.
Beyond the natural and beautiful landscape they create, the green purpose of the gardens of the vertical structure is the regulation of the temperature in the building, by natural means. There is a combination of shading from the sun to reduce energy consumption in the building and to regulate the temperature inside.
The large roof garden on the eighth floor provides green areas and regulates the temperatures below. On the roof there is also be a pergola that will shade the garden and the western offices.
Everything here is environmental. The building has a graywater recycling system that waters the garden areas. The excess water recycles the toilet water and the building illuminates a cost-effective LED system that reduces electric consumption.
