The aim of the works is to introduce a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SuDS) system that works as a sequence of passive water management practices, control structures and strategies designed to efficiently and sustainably drain surface water with special regard for engaging biodiversity in the solutions. The Tender focuses on experimentation and monitoring as main key elements of the design with particular focus on experimentation of possible solutions for integrating the rain garden with the runoff from the building roof. Tender applications are expected to include comparative innovative solutions that facilitate monitoring water management for Nature Based Solutions (NBS) in the pursuit of presenting research findings for broader use, business innovation and solving industry problems. The visibility of the process to users on campus and visitors is considered of utmost importance in this work, reflecting on the main objective of IGNITION to showcase NBS solutions to the wider public and potential investors in NBS.
