University Teaching Facility, Bournemouth
Stormsaver was required to provide a rainwater harvesting solution to significantly reduce the consumption of mains water within the university building in Bournemouth. The client had a goal to achieve BREEAM outstanding on the new building as part of their ESG (environmental, social, and governance) commitments. As always, Stormsaver was on hand to offer the best solution for their requirements.
Our estimators worked with the main construction contractor to specify our Combi Rainwater Harvesting System which recycles rainwater for a non-potable supply. The contractor required a system that was easy to install, and that solution came in the form of our combi control unit which is renowned across the industry for housing all control systems in one, self-contained unit. We were also able to supply our unique automatic backwashing filter which eliminated the need for physical filter replacement by the university as part of their ongoing maintenance program.
Stormsaver has provided bi-annual maintenance services to the university since the system was commissioned. On our latest service visit, our engineer found that the system had recycled 1.2 million litres of rainwater. In a typical building without rainwater harvesting, this would have meant high-quality drinking water would have been used and wasted. Stormsaver has also provided tank cleaning services to ensure high levels of water quality for building users despite being in an area of intense avion activity by the coast.
