Derby College Group has teamed up with washroom water conservations specialists HSG, which has installed its technology at three of its key sites.

HSG has installed its Ureco units and Uretech water managers at the college’s flagship technical and vocational skills college, The Roundhouse, in Pride Park, as well as at the neighbouring Hudson Building and the Joseph Wright Centre, in the city centre.

HSG’s Ureco system earned the company The Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2018 in recognition of the benefits it brings to customers, ranging from single site restaurants and offices to major shopping, sports and entertainment venues such as the O2 Arena.

The installation will save more than 4.5 million litres of water a year across the Derby College Group sites – equating to a £11,333 reduction in water bills and will improve the washroom experience for staff, students and visitors alike.

Simon Rice, managing director of HSG, which is also based on Pride Park, said: “We already work with a large number of schools, colleges and universities across the UK who share the common goals of reducing their carbon footprint and providing high quality facilities so we are pleased to welcome Derby College Group on board.

“Having carried out a full survey of the sites, our specialist technical services team will now return on site to carry out maintenance of the Ureco system to ensure that savings accrue year on year.”

Ian Baldwin, Derby College Group’s director of estates, said: “We’re delighted to have worked with a local specialist company to find a solution that not only reduces water consumption but also improves the washroom experience for everyone in these particularly busy buildings.

“The Ureco’s patented design, alongside the use of HSG’s special cleaning fluids, has already reduced maintenance time and costs, which is welcome news for our multi-faceted estates and facilities team and has been supported by our environmental and sustainability officer.”
