Pitch Line MetroPolder creates urban polders. We transform hardend surfaces (such as flat roofs) into a smart rainwater retention solution
Modern cities treat rainwater as waste, while rainwater can be a valuable resource for our urban climate. That’s why MetroPolder is set out to transform our metropoles into metro-polders. We transform hardend surfaces (such as flat roofs) into a smart rainwater retention solution. By doing so (roof by roof and surface by surface), we create a new urban network for rainwater management. Our solution provides a regulated waterlevel and flow. An online dashboard provides realtime information and the ability to control the waterbuffer. We call it polder roofs, the next generation green roofs. A polder? That’s the way the Dutch builded Holland. Polders are claimed land from the water. A Polder roof reclaims the roof for water. Period. MetroPolder delivers engineering, installation and operational services for smart cities.We work from our office in Rotterdam in Western Europe and from 2019 on with a local team in New York City. We are looking for clients and partners.
