Architek provides a range of site water management solutions: design and consultation for owners and architects, supplier of advanced products & systems, plus installation and project management services.
Architek's site-water management solutions fall into two key areas:
1. Storm Water Mitigation
Control water retention and drainage to reduce the flow into city drainage systems, thereby avoiding or reducing subsequent flooding, on your own site as well as in the surrounding city.
2. Water Conservation
Conserve and re-use water to save money and help the environment at the same time. As water become more scarce and expensive, conservation become ever more cost-effective and necessary.
Consultation & Design Services
Architek works in conjunction with civil engineering partners to provide comprehensive site-water design and systems recommendations. We can help you address many site-water management issues, including:
- Local municipal stormwater requirements & bylaws
- Site Design
- System solutions
