Water usage is a growing priority, and our design responses offer stability from low
rainfall and increasing water rates. Innovative Design's unique experience with water
reclamation and conservation, both as an architect and consultant, assures building
owners and staff that these are proven and easily maintained technologies. Innovative
Design approaches this issue from supply and demand sides.
A holistic analysis of the water cycle is a part of every project, including:
THE RAINCATCHER ™ DESIGN TOOL
THE RAINCATCHER ™ program has been developed by Innovative Design over the past several
years in response to increased interest in the design of rainwater collection systems for

-Fixtures specified to minimize water consumption without affecting performance;
-Process water needs assessed early for potential conservation;
-Rainwater collected from rooftop and used for irrigation and non-potable
-Cooling Tower water use, treatment, are reuse;
-Stormwater runoff minimized through site design;
-Landscaping chosen to minimize short-term and eliminate long-term irrigation
Innovative Design is well-experienced with rainwater collection systems, which not only
capture water but also capture the cost savings associated with that water. More
importantly, it provides the building occupants with a wonderful lesson in the value and
importance of conserving and protecting water resources. They will learn about the cost of
water, how much energy it takes to treat and transport water, the benefits that can be
realized by reducing stormwater leaving the site, and the environmental consequences of
not addressing water shortage problems in an environmentally sustainable manner.
