Project Design Brief
Designers were asked to incorporate an economical stormwater management system to capture the runoff from the car park pavement. The stormwater management system required an infiltration system and a detention system to spread the peak flow of water over a longer period of time, mitigating any surge effect downstream. The stormwater management system also needed to be easily accessible for inspection, maintenance and cleaning procedures.
