Site Use

Considering how a building and site impact on each other, enhancing energy efficiency, comfort and convenience.

Locating outdoor site features

It is important in the early stages of design to consider location of both the services that are required on a site such as stormwater soak pits and/or onsite wastewater systems, and the lifestyle requirements of the owners. The latter include outdoor living areas and vehicle access/driveways/parking/garaging.

You can also find technical details in other sections about on-site wastewater systems and stormwater control and landscaping.
