Australian businesses and household attitudes towards water efficiency have been shaped by ongoing drought conditions, revised energy targets and a booming population over the past few decades.
Water efficiency is now an essential consideration for developers as the property industry works toward sustainability.
Areas of rapid expansion, such as south-east Queensland, Sydney and Melbourne, have set new standards for future energy and water needs of the regions.
As a result, integrating efficient design with the natural environment has become a crucial issue for developers trying to keep pace with Australia’s changing urban landscape.
Throughout this period, rainwater has remained a sustainable water supply reducing water treatment and transport costs.
Australia’s interest in sustainable water systems has led to demand from many industries for on-site stormwater management, a need that Kingspan Water and Energy has started to meet through on-site systems that reduce the peak flow and volume of stormwater.
Kingspan use state-of-the-art facilities nationwide to promote sustainable buildings, which in turn support how successfully our cities can run.
For developers, these commercial tanks can provide fire water storage, rainwater harvesting and treated water storage for the industrial, mining and agriculture sectors.
They can also efficiently manage on-site stormwater, making them a valuable asset in several major growth projects across Australia.
Water systems can be used in a variety of different project types and scopes, with tailored solutions working to suit the specific needs of each project – whether it’s commercial, residential or industrial.
Some of Kingspan’s most innovative project solutions include:
