Stormsaver helps Hull community health centre recycle rainwater

Posted: Thursday 8th April 2010

One of the most innovative buildings in the East Midlands is to benefit from a state of the art rainwater harvesting system, supplied by the UK’s market leader, Stormsaver.

Appointed by plumbers Binks Building Services, Stormsaver will supply an 18,000 litre below-ground tank, integral filtration and a UV system to the Orchard Park’s government healthcare building in Hull. The system will capture up to 668m3 of rainwater from the 1,500m2 roof area and is projected to save Orchard Park up to £1,527 each year.

The recycled water will be used to flush WCs and urinals at the centre.

The Orchard Centre provides health and council services, commercial facilities and cultural activities to the local community. It is the seventh and largest development for the Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) scheme, developed by Citycare in partnership with NHS Hull and the Sewell Group.

In an effort to minimise the building’s impact on the environment, The Orchard Centre has been built with eco-friendly resources and sustainable features, such as rainwater harvesting.

The contract is worth £20,450. The Architect is Leeds-based Thomson Spencer.
