Sustainability / Innovation & Community Engagement
Low impact rainwater discharge system – blue roof water attenuation system used to minimise impact on surrounding drainage infrastructure.
Blue roof for sustainable drainage was installed. The blue roof attenuates water and releases the water slowly into the local sewage system, relieving pressure from the system during storm conditions. The roof was also biodiverse to create a high-level ecological habitat. An extensive range of community engagement initiatives implemented to include site tours, DIY workshops for the public and community days.
