  • Appraising infrastructure for new towns in Ireland 

    Hunt, Dexter V.L.; Lombardi, D. Rachel; Jefferson, I.; Rogers, Chris D.F.; Butler, David; Memon, Fayyaz (ICE Publishing, 2012)
    Over a 20 year period 1996–2016, a new 223 ha town is being developed 10 miles west of Dublin's city centre on the south side of Lucan, County Dublin, in the Republic of Ireland (ROI). This €4 billion ‘Adamstown’ development ...
  • Benchmarking energy consumption and CO2 emissions from rainwater harvesting systems: an improved method by proxy 

    Ward, Sarah; Butler, David; Memon, Fayyaz (IWA (International Water Association), 2010)
    Life cycle analyses (LCAs) show the main operational energy contribution for rainwater-harvesting (RWH) systems come from ultraviolet (UV) disinfection and pumping rainwater from tank to building. Simple methods of estimating ...
  • A framework for supporting rainwater harvesting in the UK 

    Ward, Sarah; Butler, David; Barr, Stewart; Memon, Fayyaz (IWA Publishing, 2009)
    Numerous policy vehicles have been introduced in the UK promoting the use of rainwater harvesting (RWH). However, an 'implementation deficit' exists where legislation limits action by failing to provide adequate support ...
  • Harvested rainwater quality: the importance of appropriate design 

    Ward, Sarah; Memon, Fayyaz; Butler, David (IWA Publishing, 2010)
    This paper summarises the physicochemical and microbiological quality of water from a rainwater harvesting (RWH) system in a UK-based office building. 7 microbiological and 34 physicochemical parameters were analysed during ...
  • Impact of system factors on the water saving efficiency of household grey water recycling 

    Liu, S.; Butler, David; Memon, Fayyaz; Makropoulos, C.; Wang, Q. (Taylor & Francis, 2010)
    A general concern when considering the implementation of domestic grey water recycling is to understand the impacts of system factors on water saving efficiency. Key factors include household occupancy, storage volumes, ...
  • Impacts of residence time during storage on potential of water saving for grey water recycling system 

    Liu, S.; Butler, David; Memon, Fayyaz; Makropoulos, C.; Avery, L.; Jefferson, B. (Elsevier, 2010)
    Grey water recycling has been generally accepted and is about to move into practice in terms of sustainable development. Previous research has revealed the bacteria re-growth in grey water and reclaimed municipal water ...
  • A pilot study into attitudes towards and perceptions of rainwater harvesting in the UK 

    Ward, Sarah; Butler, David; Memon, Fayyaz (2008)
    Rainwater harvesting (RWH) has been identified as having dual benefits - as an alternative water supply, which helps reduce demand on potable supplies and as a stormwater detention method to help relieve urban flooding. ...
  • Rainwater harvesting: model-based design evaluation 

    Ward, Sarah; Memon, Fayyaz; Butler, David (2008)
    The rate of uptake of rainwater harvesting (RWH) in the UK has been slow to date, but is expected to gain momentum in the near future. The design of two different new-build rainwater harvesting systems are evaluated using ...
  • Scenario archetypes: converging rather than diverging themes 

    Hunt, Dexter V.L.; Lombardi, D. Rachel; Atkinson, Stuart; Barber, Austin R.G.; Barnes, Matthew; Boyko, Christopher T.; Brown, Julie; Bryson, John; Butler, David; Caputo, Silvio; Caserio, Maria; Coles, Richard; Cooper, Rachel F.D.; Farmani, Raziyeh; Gaterell, Mark; Hale, James; Hales, Chantal; Hewitt, C. Nicholas; Jankovic, Lubo; Jefferson, I.; Leach, J.; MacKenzie, A. Rob; Memon, Fayyaz; Sadker, Jon P.; Weingaertner, Carina; Whyatt, J. Duncan; Rogers, Chris D.F. (2012)
    Future scenarios provide challenging, plausible and relevant stories about how the future could unfold. Urban Futures (UF) research has identified a substantial set (>450) of seemingly disparate scenarios published over ...
  • Scenario-based sustainable water management and urban regeneration 

    Farmani, Raziyeh; Butler, David; Hunt, Dexter V.L.; Memon, Fayyaz; Abdelmeguid, Hossam; Ward, Sarah; Rogers, Chris D.F. (ICE Publishing, 2012)
    Deployable output (source availability) from water resources in north west England is predicted to decrease over the next 25 years. Alternative supply management strategies are planned to help avoid a deficit in the ...
  • Urban futures and the code for sustainable homes 

    Hunt, Dexter V.L.; Lombardi, D. Rachel; Farmani, Raziyeh; Jefferson, I.; Memon, Fayyaz; Butler, David; Rogers, Chris D.F. (ICE Publishing, 2012)
    A 6?6 ha (66 000 m2) regeneration site, commonly referred to as Luneside East, is to be turned from a run down, economically under-achieving area of Lancaster, UK, into a new, distinctive, vibrant, sustainable quarter of ...
