In its most basic form, rainwater harvesting is simply the process of collecting and depositing rainwater before it meets an aquifer. If intelligently done, rainwater harvesting can have benefits for your irrigation system and garden.
Office buildings, shopping centers, apartment buildings, and other commercial properties can reap substantial benefits from rainwater harvesting. Whatever the motive - sustainability, reduced utility costs, or improved landscaping - rainwater harvesting makes great sense for commercial property managers.
This fall, our team is gearing up to begin work at The Asher, a luxury apartment community in Alexandria's Old Town neighborhood. We're particularly excited about this project because it is expected to receive LEED Silver certification due to its many green building and design features.
