Active Attenuation Tank
Strikes supermarket and garden centre is located on the outskirts of Stokesley just off the A172 in Northern England. The facility was rebuilt following a devastating fire in April 2018. The redeveloped site is now home to 3,500sqm of retail space, a 300-seater restaurant and a bakery.
StormHarvester’s technology has been deployed on this site to turn the 60,000L attenuation tank into an active attenuation system. The active system is used to recycle water for reuse around the site while at the same time allowing the tank to count towards the sites overall storm attenuation requirement. Water is recycled for use within the toilets and to provide irrigation within the garden centre.
Installing the StormHarvester control system on this site has negated the requirement for a separate 60,000L rainwater harvesting tank on-site. During the construction phase of the development, RH Irving Construction Ltd was able to speed up construction time while also reducing construction costs on the project.
The StormHarvester system ensures a large reduction in the volume of stormwater discharged from the site into the local drainage network. Instead of being discharged the water is now reused on-site which contributes to reducing the sites annual water bills.
