Leading university saves money with Stormsaver

Posted: Thursday 28th April 2011

Stormsaver, the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer of rainwater harvesting systems has been awarded a new contract with the Gateway Project at the University of Durham.

The Gateway project is the latest phase in the university’s £60m ongoing re-development programme, which will provide environmentally sustainable, fit-for-purpose facilities.

The 20,000m2 Gateway development will see the construction of the new Palatine Centre, providing accommodation for student services, a new home for the Law School and university executive, along with a three story extension to the main university library.

Stormsaver has been commissioned by mechanical and electrical contractor Crown House Technologies, to supply a 40,000 litre rainwater harvesting system, which will be used for the flushing of approximately 70 toilets and urinals. The system will collect up to 3,000 litres of rainwater each year and will result in potential financial savings of up to £4,300 annually.

Construction of the Gateway project is scheduled for completion in early Summer 2012. The ‘BREEAM’ excellent rated facility will be officially opened later in the year.
