5 projects made better with our water innovations
23 March 2022
The climate crisis has put flood risk management at the forefront of urban planning efforts, especially in coastal areas. Extreme weather events are stressing the inefficiency of old concrete and gravel systems, urging for new, long-term solutions that would better protect cities against flooding.
Innovation was key to our success in addressing flooding issues. By utilizing recycled plastic, we created stormwater management systems that were not only more sustainable, but easier to transport and install, and better able to preserve the natural water cycle. Here are 5 projects improved by our solutions:
As part of the 70,000 m2 East Terminal construction, Milan Bergamo Airport needed a stormwater dispersion basin for its infrastructure areas, with as little disruption to the existing terminals as possible. Aquabox provided a high-capacity basin in record time, preventing future flood damages and airport maintenance costs.
Allianz Cloud was located in a congested urban area prone to rainstorm flooding due to many underground streams. Drainpanel modules allowed easy manipulation with no heavy machinery, creating 4 laminated basins with decreased construction time and costs.
Marchesini Group Headquarters demanded a minimally invasive stormwater management solution, able to conform to its small footprint and shallow excavation depth. Drening tunnel-shaped modules easily adapted to the available space, preventing flooding and facilitating rainwater reuse at the same time.
The Hathaway House Redevelopment had limited space on its public surfaces. New Elevetor Tank’s fully customizable system helped build a large rainwater accumulation tank under the complex, as part of the underground garage, making the construction quicker and less demanding.
