The first and only cistern to give BREEAM credits and LEED points.
By simply installing Encore instead of conventional cisterns, professionals such as architects, consultants, developers and specifiers can deliver buildings that are more water efficient than ever before.
Encore enables additional credits to be claimed under BREEAM’s WAT 01 category.
Encore could provide two extra BREEAM credits and as many as five when used with other water saving devices.
WAT 01 aims to reduce the consumption of potable water for sanitary use in existing buildings from all sources through the use of water efficient components and water recycling systems.
BREEAM schemes are certified on a scale of Pass, Good, Very Good, Excellent and Outstanding.
The more credits gained, the higher the BREEAM rating.FIND OUT WHAT YOU COULD SAVE
By choosing Encore, up to six new points could be claimed in LEED’s Water Efficiency category.
LEED encourages projects to reuse water, including condensate and reclaimed wastewater for irrigation, toilet flushing and more.
Projects are rated Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
The more points gained, the higher the LEED rating.FIND OUT WHAT YOU COULD SAVE
