Title of CPD course

I thought I knew . . . how to design WATER SYSTEMS in buildings


Anneke Schriek

Course information (Content/Overview)

Due to COVID 19 the format of the course is an online interview: “Computer based distance education.

The course is split into two parts:

  1. In section one the participant is taken through the design of a ‘water conscious’ building. This is most relevant to younger architects and architects who have no experience in complex water design systems.
  2. The second part of the course is an interview with a water specialist. The following questions and answers are discussed in detail:


1. What is WaterSurplus 2025 and what role can architects play in it?

2. What are five practical items architects can include in NEW building designs to make the water consumption better?

3. Can one feasibly live off the water-grid?

4. Tell me more about thewater saving flushmechanism? Canit be installed in any toilet? What are the stats? How much does it cost? Where can one find it?

5. Do you harvest rainwater that falls on roadways? How does it work?

6. If a client just wants to spend a couple of thousand rand to save water, what do you recommend, where do they start?

7. Are there any other tips or techniques you wish all architects knew that could potentially save millions of litres of water?
