29 Apr 2014 Clifton St | Green building practices
As you may know, innovative practices and energy efficiency are priority for MRB. Through each stage of a build, from design to construction and maintenance, the common objective is to reduce the overall impact of the build on our natural environment.
This is evident here at Clifton St. A 10300 pound cistern tank was installed with the brawn of excavation equipment and guided by Corey and Smitty. The cistern tank will be the collection point for rainwater and is fed by a series of downpipes from the roof. The pipes leading into the three toilets that the tank will service have been heavily insulated with sand, gravel and finally enclosed in a rigid foam box.
From an aesthetic point of view, you would never know the tank was there. From an environmental point of view, this installation is a great example of green building practice.
