Treating wastewater and capturing rain in Barnstorming Build

BioDisc sewage treatment plant installed in award-winning 19th Century barn conversion.

The Project


A beautiful, award-winning 19th Century barn conversion with sustainability built into the fabric of the building, needed an effective off-mains drainage solution and to reduce its reliance on mains water.  The farm had previously been served by a septic tank, but the development of the barn gave the opportunity for an upgrade in the drainage solutions.


Our recommended solution was a BioDisc sewage treatment plant to service both the conversion and the neighbouring farmhouse;  this highly efficient solution will remove up to 95% of the pollutants in sewage effluent.  We also supplied a Raintrap rainwater harvesting system, to capture rainwater for external uses such as watering plants and cleaning farm vehicles.  The barn conversion has been awarded the prestigious LABC Building Excellence awards for its build quality and the sustainability quotient.
