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 8

Concrete is acoustically versatile but also it can be moulded to any size, shape and texture.  It can be used to deflect or absorb noise.  This makes it a good acoustic host for music but also an effective sound barrier alongside busy roads.
