Project Description

Barnsley Hospital

NHS Trust

Propelair were engaged to carry out a study of the toilet facilities at the Barnsley Hospital A&E Department. They were looking to reduce water consumption and operational costs across their site.

During the 10 day monitoring period, the data from 6 toilets across 2 washrooms was collected. The results were very positive with the toilets on average being flushed 140 times per day. The 200 toilets across the site would result in the following savings detailed below.

The Propelair toilets would bring huge financial and environmental benefits to Barnsley Hospital. Annually the site would save 66,430,000 litres of water and reduce their water bills by £189,326.
