English Cities Fund awarded John Turner a contract to build 36 new townhouses as part of a regeneration project of Chapel Street in Central Salford. 

This contemporary city centre development featured a landscaped communal gated courtyard, car park and public realm adding value to the local area.

The brief contained a number of environmental targets including water consumption. One target included water storage of greater than 200l for irrigation and washing. 

The challenge involved providing a water storage solution which was in keeping with the architectural vision of the development. Furthermore, the downpipe detailing of the development included square aluminium recessed downpipe. This presented a challenge with installation of the downpipe diverter. 

John Turner appointed Freeflush Rainwater Harvesting to provide the water diversion and storage solution in keeping with the development.

Due to the limited yard space available and the colour palette of the development Freeflush proposed a range of grey/anthracite slim (flat back) water butts from its extensive range in an option appraisal format so a comparison of features could be made.

A number of diverter samples were provided to John Turner on site so that they could be tested with the proposed downpipe detail.  After a successful trial of the downpipe diverter it was adopted as the preferred option. The Noblesse water butt was selected as the preferred option
