The City Gate House project team installed a series of water efficiency measures (as part of the temporary services package) to reduce water consumption during construction.

This included a time clock control on the mains site water meter, with a solenoid valve switching off the water supply to the entire site during non-working hours. This eliminates the risk of leaks and flooding during non-working hours, potentially saving thousands of litres of water in addition to removing the chance of any resulting damage to site areas and materials. It also ensures that any water consuming equipment accidentally left on does not consume water when the site is closed.

In addition to this measure, the site team also ensured water coolers were fed directly from the mains water supply (rather than water butts being delivered to site), push taps and dual flush toilets were installed in welfare areas, and emergency shut off signage was installed at main water vales as part of the flood mitigation strategy.
