Water! Design and Planning Strategies (1.5 LU|HSW)

We will hear from Tony Madrone of Indra Designs about the “restorative resource management” approach with strategies for architects and designers related to water management. Tony will present project examples to illustrate pre-construction design and planning measures, as well as construction solutions that conserve, capture, and manage water in a wholistic manner.

Design and planning strategies include:
  • future planning with rough plumbing for greywater
  • rainwater, greywater, stormwater, blackwater treatments
  • dual plumbing, non-potable indoor reuse
  • intelligent landscape design such as mulch and soil type management, water reuse
