Being Self Sustainable
The Waterfront will considerably reduce reliance on mains water, lighting and comfort utilities. The lake at the heart of the development, 14,000 square metres in size, doubles as a wetland. It will be the main water storage area while the land will act as the catchment area. Cascades and fountains will help oxygenate the water. We will add Gambusia fish to eliminate mosquitos, catfish to control the frog population, and tilapia to control algae growth. These will in turn attract herons, ducks, geese, kingfishers and many other birds. Other than the ecological attraction, the water features will also reduce dependence on mains water by incorporating sophisticated water recycling and holding system.The buildings, meanwhile, will use as much natural light as possible and take advantage of natural ventilation.
Eco Smart Technology
The Waterfront believes in the sustainable use of water. We identified a company to fit in all our water output products a champion for the value of water Hansgrohe.
Their mixers and showers, which are fitted with EcoSmart technology, require up to 60% less water than conventional products. Thirteen litres of water per minute run through a conventional basin mixer. EcoSmart lowers water consumption by up to 60%, to around 5 litres per minute. This works by adding air and by means of a special flow limitation system. The result of which is a full, bubbling water jet.
Seeing the light
The development will have solar panels on the rooftops that will supplement The Waterfront’s power needs.
