Despite recent wet winters in the UK, water is not a disposable commodity but a precious resource. Water is not a limitless resource that can be easily replenished and some parts of the world, areas of the UK among them, are severely water challenged. The UK is one of the biggest importers of water through embodied water in energy, food and products, and the demand is rising. This has an impact on rivers and aquifers both in the UK and globally. This session explores water-efficient buildings and landscapes through case studies, showing what good planning, design, delivery and long-term maintenance plans can achieve.
