As building science and technologies evolve, architects and engineers continue to draw on the basic fundamental principles of sustainable design. LAN has been working with an industrial manufacturing facility, Pratt & Whitney Advanced Coating Technologies, a United Technologies Company to design a rainwater harvesting system that is integrated with the building’s cooling towers that provide process cooling water for use in the manufacturing process. Given the facilities substantial need for process water, a massive rainwater harvesting system was incorporated into the addition which houses the new mechanical equipment.  Rainwater from the 77,000 square foot roof is collected in a 50’ x 70’ x 7’ deep cistern below the mechanical equipment room addition for a total capacity of 152,171.5 gallons.
