BREEAM Rainwater Harvesting Standards
BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method). In our modern age, most, if not all commercial buildings will be built under the BREEAM Scheme which grades them in terms of their Environmental Impact, with the highest rating being Excellent.
In order to achieve these levels, certain targets for Energy, Sustainability and Water must be met. The lower the environmental impact, the higher the rating.
Stormsaver work with many clients who aim on achieving ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ on their commercial developments by installing a rainwater harvesting system. The addition of a rainwater harvesting system can add up to five points which contributes to the industry-recognised award scheme.
Should a building achieve BREEAM accreditation, it is important to maintain the system to ensure maximum water savings are being achieve throughout the lifespan of the building. Stormsaver offer comprehensive maintenance services for rainwater harvesting systems. Find out more about rainwater harvesting system maintenance requirements here.
