Introducing RAFT: Bioretention Made Simple RAFT intercepts stormwater runoff in urban environments where space is limited, and retrofits are difficult. We’ve made urban raingardens quick and easy to install by simplifying the structure holding it. InfraSGA is developing green infrastructure that is attainable by all and feasible for wide market adoption. The challenge is creating a product suitable for a range of site conditions, without need for specialty contractors, and cost-effective for wide adoption. Our debut product RAFT makes green stormwater infrastructure effective within tough urban environments like streetscapes, plazas, and parking lots. Designed to be installed by a small crew of three, the system is perfect for rapid deployment by a public works department using basic construction knowledge. RAFT provides our cities and towns more opportunities to try green stormwater solutions that reduce deadly floods and protect our natural waterway resources.
