Drainage and Rainwater Harvesting
The managing and harvesting of rainwater is critical to ensure we manage the changes predicted in the UK climate over the next 50 years. The CUBE6 site includes the installation of soakaways and areas that will not be concreted which will help to prevent localised flooding and reduce the demand on the piped drainage systems. There is also a 3000 gallon water harvesting tank for use in the manufacture of the ready mixed concrete.
