Green Buildings – Rainwater Harvesting
When we are talking about the incorporation of various design features that would make the building green, it is not just the expensive materials that consume less energy or are less energy intensive. Earlier we discussed various Active and Passive features to be incorporated to make the building green without increasing the cost of infrastructure by purchasing expensive green materials.
Following green principles and design features that would make the building energy efficient and green also results in Sustainable Development which has become the prime need of the time.
Rainwater Harvesting is one such design feature that is to be incorporated in any kind of building; be it a commercial or residential complex.
Rainwater Harvesting is a technology in which individual building or a group of buildings collect and utilize rainwater during the rainy season. This water can be stored in storage tanks and used for non-domestic purposes.
