Mark Wille, host of The Dirt Series, #greenstepsforward explains how having all the plumbing in the core area of the house or building can save you money. Once you place insulation around those pipes the additional dollars add up immediately.
Talk with your architect and ask how to save on pipe materials in the plumbing design. Ask if you can have the bathrooms, kitchen and mechanical room all in one place. A well throughout design and using less pipes will conserve on how far the water has to travel in the home or building and ultimately save on installing and purchasing of these materials.
Mark offers simple steps to insure a great design and function starts with a core understanding of using less materials, saving water, and saving money. It all comes down to smart design at the start of the project.
