Rainwater collection (waterbutts, storage tank)

 

All rainwater that falls on the roof of both properties will be collected in an underground storage tank in the back garden. Waterbutts at the front of the property will store circa 80 litres of rainwater for use in the garden. Once full, they will overflow into the storage tank.

Once full, the storage tank will overflow into a soakaway designed to take the rainwater to the most permeable layer of soil on the site.

The Code 6 house will use rainwater from the storage tank for flushing toilets.

Fact 10

The versatility of concrete can be seen in its application as a carrying medium for heating or cooling, whether this is via air or fluids.  The hollow cores in precast concrete floors can be used or pipes can be cast into slabs.  The concrete surface radiates very effectively, enables space to be used without the hindrance of radiators and protects the heating or cooling system within.
