The project involved the installation of double check valves on incoming water mains, installation of flow limiting valves to hot and cold supplies and the installation of a new cold water tank to feed various laboratories.
The project also included the removal of all deadlegs on hot and cold pipe work and the installation of electronic sensor cisternmizers to control water to the male toilets. We had to clean and chlorinate the hot and cold pipe work and fit anti-syphon nozzles to the laboratory taps.
This project proved to be complex as there was a requirement for it to be carried out during term time. However MEH Facilities’ engineers completed the project with no disruption to campus services.
All the above works were carried out on the recommendation of the water authority.
