The Smart Home is the first LEED Platinum residence hall and was designed as a 6,000 square foot live-in research laboratory operated by Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering. The irrigation system uses 100% rainwater and guarantees no municipal water will be used. Rainwater also supplies the toilet flushing and laundry facilities for the property.
BRAE supplied the field erected 1,400 gallon CorGal® cistern, initial downspout filtration and a RMH-10 pump station with constant pressure water supply and commissioned the project at completion.
