Drainage in Tall Buildings

Tall Buildings

Due to geography and limited space in urban areas a large number of commercial and high-rise residential buildings are by design, tall. The design and layout of drainage in tall buildings needs to be considered as it poses its own significant challenges:


  • Volume of discharge is higher
  • Layouts can be more complex than in single storey dwellings
  • The interception and control of rainwater at source for many tall buildings can help decrease sub base requirements
  • Fire containment is also of paramount importance
