Paddington Square, London

Paddington Square, designed by world-renowned architect Renzo Piano, will incorporate 360,000 sq ft of prime office space, 75,220 sq ft of world-class retail and dining space, a 13,650 sq ft rooftop restaurant and a new 1.35 acre public square. The development will also deliver a much needed £65m investment into London’s transport infrastructure that will provide a new Bakerloo Line ticket hall in Paddington Station. At the heart of Paddington Square, a Piano-designed office building will rise 14 floors above street level, with unrivalled views across Hyde Park and central London. Like Sellar’s previous landmark building designed by Renzo Piano – The Shard – the Paddington Square building will be designed to the highest standards, appealing to international and blue-chip occupiers. The building will also incorporate five floors of retail, mixing global, independent, high street and heritage brands, as well as high quality restaurants and eateries. It is estimated Paddington’s local economy will benefit by as much as £350m a year following completion of Paddington Square, while the development will bring approximately 4,500 new jobs to the area. Aquaco designed, manufactured, supplied and installed a Grey and Rain water attenuation system which processes 18,000 Litres per day of Grey water, plus a huge capacity of rainwater captured from the roof and sides of the building. This means has the capacity to recycle upto 7 million litres of grey water alone a year. Large portions of this project will be manufactured off site, to align with MACE goals of modular pre fabricated systems This project is expected for completion in 2022

Elephant Park, London

– Lendlease

Lendlease has been working in partnership with Southwark Council to deliver a £2.3 billion regeneration project in Elephant & Castle since 2010. The area has been an important part of London since Roman times, whether as a transport junction, a hub for entertainment and shopping or a place to call home. The project will breathe new life into this special part of Central London, building on Elephant & Castle’s heritage and creating thousands of high quality new homes, jobs, business opportunities and green space for Londoners.

The regeneration is split across three sites: Elephant Park, Trafalgar Place and One The Elephant. We have already completed the first phase of Elephant Park – South Gardens – as well as two earlier phases, Trafalgar Place and One The Elephant. You can find out more about each of these completed schemes below. That leaves a further four phases to be completed across Elephant Park, with a final completion date of 2025.

Aquaco supplied and supervised the install and commissioning of a containerised MBR grey water system, capable of processing 10,000 litres per day in 2016. The grey water is used for WC flushing demands for building contractor for temporary site services during the construction phases of the project. 

Aquaco has contributed in ensuring a sustainable approach to the construction of this project by maximising the water reuse which also contributes to a considerable reductionin carbon footprint.

NBK Tower Grey Water Recycling – NBK Tower, Kuwait

Located on a prominent site in Kuwait City, the 300-metre-high headquarters tower for the National Bank of Kuwait will have a distinctive presence among the high-rise buildings of Sharq, the city’s growing financial district. The design combines structural innovation with a highly efficient passive form, shielding the offices from the extremes of Kuwait’s climate, where temperatures average 40 degrees in the summer months.

The form of the tower is equally driven by the needs of the bank. The spatial arrangement is tailored to the Bank’s organisational structure, while providing the flexibility to anticipate and respond to future change and growth. The crescent form maximises cellular office space at the perimeter, and the tower’s sixty floors are punctuated by three double-height sky lobbies, which provide a social focus and meeting facilities for staff. These communal areas are complemented by the chairman’s club with panoramic city views in the dramatic 18-metre-high volume at the tower’s apex. 

Aquaco supplied and supervised the install and commissioning of a multi-media grey water system, capable of processing 120,000 litres per day in 2017. The grey water is used for WC flushing demands for office workers within the building.

NBK Tower in Kuwait is the second tallest building in Kuwait is one of the most distinctive buildings in the region with its unique design, and its height of 300m means it can be veasily identified.

What is the Water Use in My Home?

What is the Water Use in My Home?

The water demand for any building is always based on a number of factors

'Thousands Have Lived Without Love, Not One Without Water' – W.H.Auden

Type of Building and its function

The type of building and its function can dramatically alter the water use, for example a gym or sports complex may house many showers, toilet facilities, washbasins etc and could have a huge demand. But something like an industrial unit with low amounts of staff may have a very low demand only coming from some staff toilets and a kitchen facility. Domestic dwellings again are generally calculated on the combination of the number of toilets and number of people living in the house.

Number of occupants

As mentioned above the number of occupants has a huge part to play in the water demand of the building. There is a daily average calculation to use based on the number of showers, toilet flushes and pysical consumption. So a rule of thumb is obviously the more people, the more consumption

Requirements of Fire protection systems

This is mainly for commerical and industrial premises which have sprinkler systems, where potable water is stored in volume but must be periodically 'turned over' to prevent stagnation and bacteriological build up. This process uses vast amounts of water

Landscape and water features

Did you know that using a hosepipe in your garden for 10 minutes uses upto 170 litres of water! If you have green fingers and a garden which needs a lot of maitnenance and care your water use is going to go up dramatically!

Household Water Use Split

WC Suite  Washing Machine  Kitchen Sink  Bath  Basin  Shower  Outside Supply  Miscellaneous  32% 12% 15% 15% 9% 5% 3% 9%

What Part Does Weather Play?

Overall consumption increases around 10% during warmer months, ourdoor use itself increases over 25%, A lot of this data has contributed towards a move to hose pipe bans An increase of heat means an increase in showers, water from consumption and also irrigation and use for the gardening

Commercial Rainwater Recycling system

Battersea Phase 3, London

Battersea Power Station is an iconic London landmark and one of the last major symbols of London’s industrial past. The redevelopment project brings both the Power Station building itself and the surrounding area back to life. The site will be easily accessible through an extension to the Northern Line.

Phase III creates ‘The Electric Boulevard’, which will be the main gateway to the 42-acre development, connecting the Northern Line Extension station with the Power Station. The phase includes more than 1,300 homes in a range of sizes and styles in two zones on either side of the boulevard, as well as a 160-room hotel, retail spaces, restaurants and leisure facilities.

Two of the world’s major signature architects are involved in this project; the building known as ‘O-1’ has been designed by Foster + Partners and the ‘RS-4’ buildings designed by Gehry Partners. ‘O- 1’ also includes a hotel, a clinic and affordable residential units. The scheme will be constructed in two phases. Phase 3A will be constructed whilst the new station is being built.

Aquaco designed, manufactured, supplied and installed a Rainwater recycling system which processes 7,000 Litres per day of Rainwater.

25 Churchill Place, London

25 Churchill Place, the last building to be built as part of the original masterplan for Canary Wharf, will be one of the most modern technology and energy-efficient office buildings on the Canary Wharf Estate.

Environmental features will include elevators that store and reuse energy elsewhere in the building, the latest ultra-efficient air-conditioning equipment that recycles the energy from exhaust air and photo voltaic cells to generate energy from the sun’s rays. The building will also have a ‘green’ roof, which enhances biodiversity and energy efficiency. 25 Churchill Place will achieve an ‘excellent’ BREEAM environmental performance rating and an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of 40 or better.

Aquaco designed, manufactured, supplied and installed a Greywater recycling system which processes 9,000 Litres per day of Greywater, plus a huge capacity of rainwater captured from the roof and sides of the building. This means has the capacity to recycle up to 3 million litres of grey water alone a year.

This project was completed in 2014 and Aquaco have been maintaining the systems since commission with our dedicated service team.
