Project Overview

Scope of Works:

  • Water storage tank drained, cleaned & chlorinated
  • Balancing of all ventilation systems


Cleartech’s Approach

Cleartech’s team of experienced water treatment engineers carried out the cleaning and chlorination of new installation hot and cold water services to BS5885 Specification. The water samples taken at this site were tested by an independent UKAS accredited laboratory. Cleartech invest considerable time, effort and resources on training and building on the expertise of our engineers. As the only HVAC commissioning and water treatment company in Scotland that are members of the Legionella Control Association, our engineers provide services in conjunction with the Code of Conduct set out by the LCA.

Our HVAC Commissioning works included carrying out ventilation balancing of all systems made up of 1x AHU and 1x Extract Fan serving supply and extract outlets throughout the building as per C.I.B.S.E code ‘A’ complete with final report. As always, our aim is to have our reports submitted promptly in order to ensure a clean handover. In this instance, we were able to submit our reports the day after all commissioning works were complete.
