We ensure that the water distribution system meets optimum performance parameters and the functional requirements of the installation. Water requirements are calculated on the basis of occupancy and area served in order to plan for adequate storage capacity and proper selection/space planning of storage tanks.
Pumping systems are selected based upon the best efficiency on the duty curve and the quality of water being supplied. In case of piping design, fixture unit method is used in accordance to national NBC and/or international (ASPE/UPC) standards.
We design the water distribution for hot and cold water in accordance with zoning principles to ensure the availability of adequate residual head at outlets. Pipe material is selected in accordance to the service temperature, pressure and quality of water. All necessary appurtenances such as pressure gauge, temperature gauge, auto air vent and isolation/control valves are provided for efficient monitoring and control of water flow.
Soil and waste disposal piping is designed to ensure high standard of hygiene and reliability and to avoid exposure of occupants and unsanitary conditions and smells. In general we recommend and design two pipe drainage systems is with anti-siphon age pipe to ensure a high degree of safely and hygiene and to avoid foul smells entering public areas through drains. However, we are also fully versed in the design of single stack system should these be required by the client or by building constraints.
We give due design consideration to the placement of the stacks in the shafts and routing of pipes in the bathrooms, toilets, laundries and kitchens to ensure easy access for maintenance of the pipe work. The Storm/Rain water drainage system is based on the maximum rainfall intensity for the location we are experienced in the design of systems all throughout India as well as internationally and are fully aware of the rainfall criteria for each location. A separate and independent rain water drainage system is provided to collect rain water from roofs, balconies, planters, paved areas, lawns and roads. Rain water is then collected in rainwater harvesting pit with overflow connection to the nearest municipal water drain (where allowed). In certain cases the rain water from roofs is collected separately and used for non-domestic purposes such as washing of car parking areas, flushing etc.
