Every day I continue to be delighted with the results that the Stormsaver rainwater harvesting system is delivering. I tell everyone about it! We've even made our water meter public to show how much water we save!
The new Blackheath Library utilises rainwater harvesting to flush its toilets using a Below Ground Storage Tank, Pressurised harvesting system. The building uses a great deal less mains water than before due to the water saving measures they have now put in place.
The building is said to embody the environmental principles at the heart of the agencies work. As a result, Horizon House won the 2010 BREEAM Office Award for being one of the most environmentally friendly offices in the UK.
The rainwater harvesting system reduces the mains water consumption by collecting and storing rainwater for use in toilet flushing. The new building uses a great deal less mains water than the offices it replaced due to the water saving measures they have put in place.
Stormsaver were contracted to supply the controls and above ground tanks for three rainwater harvesting systems at Project Barley. This huge distribution centre has three offices which are to be supplied by harvested rainwater for their toilets.
