How efficient are water systems and equipment in your building at reducing water consumption demands on municipal water supplies?
A new online course by Gauge enables participants to answer this question and provides understanding and methodologies which can be used to assess water systems and equipment in buildings in relation to water efficiency.
The course consists of short presentations which introduce water systems in buildings and provides guidance on undertaking water assessments. It includes a copy of Water Assessment in Building (WAB) tool and manual. The WAB tool supports a structured approach to assessments and provides useful reports which can be used to identify areas of strength and weakness. It also enables water systems in buildings to be rated in a quantified and rigorous way. Achieving a highly-rated WAB performance can be used to demonstrate a commitment to water sustainability performance.
The course and accompanying material are easy to understand and are suitable for both a technical and non-technical audience. The course is of particular interest to people wishing to understand how high-performance sustainable water systems in buildings can be developed.
