As a pioneering land development project, the newPark also sets new standards in urban planning with regard to modern rainwater management. In times of climate change and increasingly frequent extreme weather conditions, this has long been more than just a technical issue for urban planners and engineers. Rather, intelligent rainwater management will bring very tangible benefits for the people who work in the newPark and perhaps also spend part of their leisure time there. It will increase the quality of their stay and improve the microclimate.
Specifically, rainwater from the roof surfaces on the properties is used or infiltrated. Extensively greened roofs of the administrative buildings and partly also of the industrial halls already absorb part of the rainwater. The remaining rainwater must be infiltrated into swales or green areas on the private properties. This already significantly reduces the amount of rainwater that flows unused into the sewage system, which will relieve it in particular during heavy rainfall events.
