Helping Hammersmith & Fulham Council to cut their water costs.

In the aftermath of the recession, public sector spending has been an area of great concern for many. It is crucial that organisations in the public sector are able to cut down on unnecessary spending wherever possible so that budgets can be spent on important matters rather than being squandered. As water management specialists, we regularly help companies in the public sector to reduce their expenditure on water bills by investigating potential cost cutting solutions.

 

We have been working with the Energy Manager and Environment Department of Hammersmith & Fulham Council for the past 13 years, helping them to cut their expenditure and operate more efficiently in terms of their water use. To date, we have enabled them to save a huge £500,000 on their water bills.

 

We achieved this impressive result by keeping a close watch over every relevant detail to identify any potential savings and refunds. Our team conduct water audits and site surveys, gathering information which allows us to identify how money can be saved. For example, we identified that the council had been overpaying for water at Bishops Park for several years, due to the fact that Thames Water had been estimating their bills rather than taking accurate readings. The council were then able to claim over £150,000 in refunds.

 

We can also recommend any improvements which can be made to buildings, water storage and plumbing systems to make water use more efficient, and research how much this work will cost to determine whether the cost savings will be worth it. Using state of the art technology and closely monitoring water bills, we have successfully identified leaks at several sites so that the council could have them repaired, avoiding further damage and saving on wasted water.

 

Hammersmith & Fulham Council are just one of the public sector organisations we have helped to successfully cut their water costs, and on average we are able to help our clients save 30%.
