Weatherite Building Services - Weatherite gives Walsall's
Legionella bugs their marching orders!
Weatherite Building Services Ltd has
upgraded the water systems at two Walsall leisure
centres to eliminate the risk of legionella bacteria.
Following the results of a risk assessment of the hot
and cold water systems at Bentley Leisure Pavilion and
Willenhall Leisure Centres, Walsall Metropolitan Borough
Council awarded Weatherite Building Services the
contracts – worth over £50,000 - to ensure that they met
the strict UK guidelines for the control of legionella
bacteria in water systems.
In the leisure centres, Weatherite engineers supplied
and installed a new calorifier, pumps and mixing valves
to provide safe, temperature-controlled hot water to
service points throughout both buildings.
In addition, existing pipe work was insulated and
modified to eliminate “dead legs” and the whole of the
systems were sterilized throughout.
Roy Buckle, Sales Engineer, Weatherite Building
Services, commented: “We are pleased to have worked with
several local authorities to help them comply with their
strict water safety requirements to prevent against
scalding and risk of legionella bacteria.
“We were able to carry out the work quickly, cost
effectively and on deadline, causing minimum disruption
to staff and customers at the centres. Having developed
a good working relationship with Walsall Council, we
look forward to helping them again in the future.”
This is the latest in a series of projects Weatherite
has carried out for Walsall Council, which has included
installing air conditioning at the new Art Gallery, the
installation of gas fire heaters at Pelsall Youth Club
and carrying out similar legionella control works at
several Walsall schools and colleges.
Weatherite Building Services is part of the £40m
Weatherite group, one of the UK leaders in air
conditioning and air handling equipment.
