Halifax Building Society HQ – COVID Upgrade
RequirementsDWS upgrade to mitigate COVID-19 risk
ObjectiveSwap-out taps and flushing mechanisms to minimal contact alternatives
Halifax Building Society HQ – Scope of works:
DWS (Domestic Water System) upgrade to mitigate COVID risk. We were asked to change lever taps to concussive brassware and normal WC flushes to infra-red, thus limiting, or in the case of the flushes, eliminating the need for physical contact.
Both the plumbing & electrical aspects were completed by Horsfield’s in-house teams.
Wash-hand basin lever-operated taps were removed and replaced by single concussive type outlets.
Lever-operated flush handles were replaced with non-contact infra-red flush controls.
Behind the scenes
The old conventional toilet flush cisterns were replaced with infra-red controlled units.
Thermostatic Blending Valves were installed below the wash basins to provide temperature controlled water to the new (single) concussive outlets.
