East Midlands EXPO 19th November 2008

Freerain Ltd is attending the East Midlands EXPO event at the Lincolnshire Showground's Epic Centre. The venue was chosen due to its environmental and sustainable creditials.

The event is free to enter and open to the general public to gain an insight in to the latest environmental trends and products and also attend the many seminars delivered by a number of professionals.

The centre, sometimes known as the Epic Project was a purpose built exhibition centre with a whole host of sustainable technologies. Indeed Freerain supplied the rainwater harvesting system and this was installed by local contractor Sleaford Building Services (SBS Ltd). Other technologies included wind turbines, biomass heating, solar and PV. Along side the technologies were traditional construction methods, including the use of natural ventilation, minimal use of steel and concrete. With a general focus on a sustainable approach to construction.

The rainwater harvesting system supplied was:

18,000L GRP underground storage tank
VF2 Filter roof filter
Duo-204 control system (two submersible pumps)
Expansion Vessel
UV Filter
