Australian War Memorial goes green with ecoRain®

A Rocla ecoRain® rainwater utilisation system has been incorporated into the upgrade of the iconic Australian War Memorial in Canberra.

The redevelopment of the eastern precinct of the War Memorial building includes a new coach parking area, a memorial courtyard, underground carpark for 200 cars, a new café and outdoor toilet facilities.

The ecoRain® system was installed underground, behind the excavated carpark.  Rainwater will be collected from the roof of the café, stored in the 30kL ecoRain® reinforced concrete tanks, then gravity-fed to a pump and used for toilet flushing, irrigation of the landscaped area over the carpark and for other non-potable water requirements around the site.

Sound structural capacity and design flexibility made the ecoRain® system ideally suited to this application.
