Greyter Selected for Balliol Park Development

The Balliol Park development in Toronto has selected a rainwater harvesting solution from Toronto-based Greyter Water Systems.

The two-tower building features 521 urban rental suites and was developed by Shiplake Properties Ltd. in the Davisville neighbourhood. Each tower features a Greyter Water system that treats and processes reclaimed rainwater so that it can be used for irrigating the lawns and gardens.

With respect to new developments, the City of Toronto limits the volume of storm water run-off that can be sent to the storm sewer. As a result, Greyter’s rainwater harvesting system is an attractive solution for builders and developers.

“Greyter’s rainwater harvesting solution will allow Balliol Park to reduce its water consumption while also reducing the demand on municipal storm sewer infrastructure, fresh water distribution, and water treatment resources,” says Mark Sales, CEO of Greyter Water Systems.

Balliol Park was designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects and professionally engineered by Smith + Andersen. Deltera Inc. was the construction manager for the two-tower 14-storey and 30-storey buildings. A number of contractors contributed to the construction of the project including Lisi Mechanical.
