It depends on where you are! Decisions of what water to collect, how to collect, where to collect, dictates solutions. However, what is common to all solutions is that the rainwater system must perform and be capable of collecting the rainwater from identified areas and spaces and transporting the rainwater to its designated discharge point safely and without leakage. Many countries are actively collecting the rainwater for re-use and others are temporarily storing the water to reduce overloading infrastructure drainage. Different uses! Different solutions!
What are these solutions? Current global codes and standards are generally relics from the history books and have not kept pace with the effects of urbanization. Industry is driving change despite the shortcomings of the codes and standards. This Seminar aims to provide a different perspective.

Kern Ling has 25 years experience in the development of rainwater systems and their use in some of the world’s most iconic buildings. Kern Ling spent 6 years in China in the period leading up to the Beijing Olympic Games. During that period Kern Ling and his Fast Flow colleagues worked with renowned international Architects such as Norman Foster from Foster + Partners on Beijing Terminal 3 (‘the gateway to the Olympics’), Rem Koolhaas and Ole Scheeren from OMA on CCTV HQ Building and Stefan Marbach from Herzog & de Meruron on Beijing National Stadium (‘The Bird’s Nest’) respectively.
