Stormsaver the first choice for rainwater harvesting, naturally…

Posted: Monday 25th July 2011

Stormsaver, the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer of rainwater harvesting systems, is proud to announce a new project with the Natural Environment Research Council.

The James Hutton Building is part of a £6.5 million development at the British Geological Survey’s (BGS) headquarters in Keyworth, Nottinghamshire.

The project will see the construction of a new two-storey office building for 100 scientific and administration staff, alongside the refurbishment of existing library accommodation. The refurbishment will provide a new main reception, conference and seminar facilities, a sales area and an exhibition space.

Stormsaver has been contracted by Hiltons building and services engineers to supply a 20,000 litre, pressurised rainwater harvesting system. The below ground system will collect approximately 840m3 of rainwater each year from the centre’s 1,164m2 roof area, which will be used for the flushing of 14 toilets and urinals. The system will result in financial savings of over £1,100 annually, as well as helping to considerably reduce mains water usage.

Alongside the Stormsaver rainwater harvesting system, the new office will have high exposed thermal mass to retain heat and mixed mode ventilation systems. The environmentally friendly features are intended to help achieve more than just a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and dramatically reduce energy usage.

Completion and opening of the development project is scheduled for spring 2012.
