Housing & Residential Development Forum Conference Day Two: Wednesday, 17 April 2019
Wednesday, April 17th, 2019
This session will focus on intelligent water management solutions in urban areas and discuss how incorporating Green Infrastructure can build resilience, have a cooling effect on the urban environment, reduce the Heat Island Effect, and help communities better prepare for extreme weather events, such as droughts or floods.
- How Green Roofs can save potable water, provide a zero energy irrigation system, deliver multifunctional benefits such as rooftop amenity, build resilience and reduce the carbon footprint.
- How to create green urban landscapes using natural irrigation without using pumps, hoses, or energy; just like nature.
- Smart solutions to capture and manage the stormwater run-off for re-use to create amenity, attract biodiversity and help with sustainability and wellbeing.
- How clean “wasted water” from condensate drains, wash-down and irrigation areas can be collected and re-used in a more efficient and practical way.
