Rainwater Harvesting for Commercial Construction

Rainwater harvesting is the process of collecting rainwater from a building’s roof using the drainage system and storing and treating the water for reuse.

By capturing and reusing rainwater, buildings reduce their need for potable water and reliance on mains water, reducing utility bills and minimising the impact on local ecosystems and infrastructure. Estimates show that nearly 95% of the water used in commercial buildings could come from non-potable sources*. Buildings can use harvested rainwater for toilet flushing, garden irrigation, fleet washing, cleaning and maintenance, decorative water features, cooling tower makeup water and fire protection systems.

Sustainability is a core principle of leading architecture and project delivery firms and water conservation is a crucial element. With LEED registration for large-scale buildings on the rise it’s worth noting that an expertly designed rainwater harvesting system can contribute significantly by earning up to 10 points across three LEED categories.
