Project Description

Thames Water

HQ Clearwater Court, Reading

Propelair were engaged to carry out a study of the toilet facilities at the Thames Water Headquarters, Clearwater Court in Reading. They were looking to reduce water consumption and overcome their water availability and peak flow demand requirement issues.

Following the 44 toilets installed in May 2015, Thames Water also decided to install 135 toilets into Walnut Court, Spencer House and Clearwater Court.

“Working with Propelair has been really easy. We’ve got the same sort of objectives, it’s an interesting piece of technology and our staff have really embraced it.”

Andrew Tucker, Water Efficiency & Affordability Manager
