Cleartech’s Approach

Our full scope of works included cleaning and chlorination of new installation hot and cold water services to BS8558 Specification at The Harbour Spring. Multiple potable water samples were taken and tested at a UKAS accredited lab and results were issued to our client. We also carried out a full pre-commission chemical clean, static flushing, biocide wash, dynamic flushing and dosing of  corrosion inhibitor  fully in accordance with BSRIA BG 29/2012 Pre-commission Cleaning of Pipework Systems. The estimated water content of the LTHW heating installation at the pub and lodge was 1,500 litres and the heat pump installation had an estimated water content of 500 litres.

Our HVAC commissioning works included carrying out water and ventilation balancing of systems, as dictated by the project specification. All works were carried out as per C.I.B.S.E code ‘A’ and ‘W’, complete with final report. The systems comprised of pumps, commissioning sets, AHUs, S grilles, Ex grilles and a canopy. Cleartech invest considerable time, effort and resources in developing the expertise of our engineers and ensuring that all work is completed fully within regulation guidelines.
