Environmental Design for Welfare Facilities

Prior to site mobilisation and working closely with A-Plant (ATC’s plant supplier). ATC have ensured we are able to provide clean, efficient and the lowest waste producing welfare facilities available.

This has been achieved through three low cost, unglamorous yet highly effective water reduction techniques:

Push stop taps: A primitive concept with intelligent water savings. By setting the water flow rate to 240 ml per use we have saved 773 litres per month without compromising functionality or hygiene standards.

Waterless Urinals: The average urinal uses 1.5l per flush, or even worse, flushes at set intervals when often not in use. By installing water-less urinals, hygiene and sanitation is not affected in pursuit of water conservation. C610 have generated a monthly saving of 7200 litres.

Eco-Flush Toilets: Another basic yet water conserving technique. By providing a duel flush system and setting the flow rate to 4 litres per flush compared to the standard 6 litres, a third of water used can be conserved whilst maintaining functionality. C610 has conserved 2400 litres a month using duel/ low flush cisterns.
