Building Engineering Services AssociationGuide to good practice: ForewordInstallatIon of Rainwater is a very precious resource.RaInwateRHaRvestIng In Rainfall levels have been extremely unpredictablenon ResIdentIal in the uK due to climate change; this has resultedBuIldIngs in extremes from drought conditions to floods in many homes and commercial premises. TR/36 Harvesting rainwater can help to overcome both problems of drought and floods by providing a constant supply of water during dry conditions and collecting excess rainfall by relieving pressure on local drains that leads to flooding. Benefits to harvesting rainwater are reductions in mains water consumption, reductions in water bills and reductions in your carbon footprint. Recycling rainwater has become a serious consideration for all new building projects. the design and construction industry recognises the importance of work- ing with specialist rainwater harvesting experts to ensure that clients re- ceive a bespoke solution for each site. the guide is intended to be part of a suite of publications covering generic installation requirements for a range of renewable energy and sustainable systems. It draws on the wide range of existing Besa publications covering good practice in building engineering systems and should be read in conjunc- tion with the wider range of tR/20 installation guides available for hot and cold water services. Clients will be able to expect systems falling within the scope of this standard to comply with its requirements when installed by Besa members. this standard is not intended to override any other client’s specifications and where new products or technologies are used full supporting manufacturer’s information shall be available if required. John Hadfield former Chairman Besa technical Committee
