As urban populations continue to grow, so too does the need to accommodate this population, and high-rise buildings are becoming an increasingly popular method of doing so. With such high population density, these projects, in keeping with contemporary minimalist trends, seek to make the best possible use of available space. Often, bathroom and wet-area space is substituted for additional living and leisure spaces, meaning that architects and specifiers face a myriad of challenges when choosing the best products to suit the unique needs of their projects, especially in relation to wastewater management.

Luckily, plumbing and sanitary system experts, Geberit, design solutions that save space, are cost-effective, and future-proof. They’ve released a new whitepaper that aims to bridge the information gap in the industry surrounding wastewater management in high-rise buildings. Trickle-down effect: Understanding the latest, space-saving developments in water management provides clear information for architects, specifiers, and designers on the latest developments in wastewater management.

Broken into clear sections – from the roof, through the building, from the toilet/washbasin, and to the underground – the whitepaper outlines the specification options for building professionals when choosing wastewater management systems for their projects. Multiple options are given in each section, touching on the benefits and drawbacks of each, with particular focus on the reliability and space-saving abilities of Geberit’s product range.

The paper goes on to discuss Geberit’s expertise in the area, which has culminated in a product range consisting of solutions that combine the superior elements of those discussed in the paper. This includes HDPE pipes, concealed cisterns, Pluvia, a siphonic roof drainage system, and Sovent, a space-saving single stack drainage system.

Free to download, the whitepaper contains vital information for architects, specifiers, and designers on the options available for wastewater management in their high-rise projects.
