What about the increased need for water?
Al Zahia aims to reduce potable water consumption by 25% over the baseline performance. To ensure that this target is met, the following strategy will be implemented throughout the site:
- Using water efficient sanitary ware fittings
- Distributing a Home User Guide to tenants with information on optimising water use
- Landscape design-plant selection
- Using only treated sewage effluent for irrigation
- Using water efficient irrigation systems
