Aquifer Built Environment Retrofitting System
The Hydrorock Aquifer Built Environment Retrofitting System provides a sustainable retrofit solution for existing buildings to manage excess rainwater, particularly in heavily paved urban areas.
The system, which incorporates a highly innovative, 100% natural, mineral wool product from Global market leader Rockwool, stores and manages excess rainwater before distributing it back into the surrounding soil, helping to prevent local storm drains being overwhelmed. The Hydrorock Aquifer Blocks are a natural aquifer – soaking up water like a sponge, holding it like a reservoir and realising it like a water can. The blocks are ecologically and environmentally friendly and totally recyclable.

Due to the versatility and flexibility of the Hydrorock Aquifer Blocks, the system is ideal for retrofit, difficult projects and restricted spaces
The Hydrorock Aquifer Blocks can accommodate existing infrastructure and immovable obstacles, going around corners and over/under and around pipes as required
The absorption and attenuation rates of the Hydrorock Aquifer Blocks allow for slow runoff, relieving the pressure from the drainage systems
The Hydrorock Aquifer Blocks help the water infiltrate where it falls, dispersing across the whole site rather than collecting in one central place
