Stay Hydrated - Drink More Water

At Stonbury, the health and wellbeing of our staff has always been extremely important to us Earlier this Summer, we launched our new health and wellbeing campaign ‘Stay Hydrated’ encouraging our staff to, well… stay hydrated! Many of our staff and site operatives are fortunate to work in and among the great outdoors, however without regular water intake, they are especially at risk to dehydration and in hotter temperatures, heat stroke and exhaustion. As part of our campaign to promote good health and encourage drinking more water, we are very excited to launch our new Stonbury water bottles, making drinking water that one step easier. Alongside the water bottles, we have water coolers and campaign awareness posters in every Stonbury office, site and cabin. Check out these happy faces and remember to 'Stay Hydrated!'

UKWIR Research Project Workshop

UKWIR: Developing best practice guidance for Service Reservoirs and Water Towers Earlier this month Stonbury were pleased to assist Mott MacDonald Consulting Engineers at the first UKWIR workshop into ‘Best practice guidance for Service Reservoirs and Water Towers’. The project aims to identify the best practices associated with the design, installation and operational stages of the two water assets. Ultimately, developing an Assessment Management Toolkit, for guidance  to enhance the life and performance of the water asset.  The workshop held on the 5th July, gathered numerous water companies, leading industry consultants and suppliers to discuss the strategies for better risk management of service reservoirs and water towers. Participants were able to learn about UK and International best practice, shape the emphasis of the research project and validate the current outputs of the research to date.  With over 30 years experience working with water assets, Stonbury presented the main issues encountered from our experience and the range of solutions we have employed over these years. The outcome of this research is to provide a best practice guidance for the operating and maintenance of existing assets, but should also serve as a decision support tool for total expenditure planning (TOTEX). It is anticipated the research will advise water companies’ 25 year strategic planning, potentially offering solutions for problems which could be encountered in PR19.
