We apply appropriate technologies, analysis, management, and design strategies to bring a site’s water supply and demand as close to balance as possible. When the relationship between climatic conditions and site specific dynamics are well understood, projects can be designed with resiliency to storm events.
Think like a watershed; sources, storage, output. Soils are one of the most optimal places to store water.
|Absorption||Soils, moisture storage capacity|
Utilize water resources from architectural systems and hardscape runoff.
|Mechanical systems||Condensate graywater|
|Roof & parking surface are||Stormwater as irrigation|
Engage stakeholders in contextual assessment and shared vision.
|Water considerations||Domestic potable water provider, quality, available tap/volume|
|Available water sources||Effluent, gray water, well, municipal, etc.|
|Government programs||Conservation/rebate programs, HOA restrictions, etc.|
Planning and Design
Consider site specfic conditions and facility management best practices.
|Productive landscape||Microclimate, habitat enhancemen t, aesthetic considerations, food production gardening|
|Net zero water target||Water budgeting; utilize irrigation for landscape establishment only|
|Appropriate technology||High efficienty irrigation system, rainwater harvestiving, mulching, soil moisture management|
