Stonbury are immensely proud to be supporting our clients across the UK at such a crucial time and have been designated as 'key workers' by DEFRA and the UK water utility companies. Our teams are working tirelessly to help secure and maintain drinking water supplies, ensuring clean and safe drinking water is provided without interruption to critical services such as our hospitals as well as the general public. Now more than ever, the safety and wellbeing of our staff is of the utmost importance and we have adapted our safe working practices to ensure social distancing precautions are in place and that the correct hygiene practices are being followed. Making safety is our priority, and we endeavour to make sure everyone at Stonbury goes home safe to their family.
Over the last 3-4 years we have refurbished and installed approximately 75 separate points for Yorkshire Water, this includes both walk-in cabinets and roadside kiosks, along with sunken sample pits to ensure gravity flow and new connection to mains where required.
Prior to a new batch of sample tap works starting in early 2019 and to improve our continual quality standard for these installations, our workforce on this contract have undertaken the BPEC Plumbing Training in relation to Water Regulations compliance and fittings, delivered by Yorkshire Water.
As a nationally recognised course, we are delighted to soon hold accreditation in this area, along with a planned extension course for groundwork pipework. The information learnt will be put into practice, as we resolve more challenging sample points across the Yorkshire Water area.
