As part of an extensive refurbishment of its Leatherhead, Surrey headquarters building, the Wates Group has opted to replace its current hand drying system with the EcoCurve 550A from Savortex. By switching to this smart technology, Savortex estimates that the company will make significant cost and energy savings, including 77.10 tonnes of CO2, totalling £14,630 over a seven-year period.
The EcoCurve 550A uses a patented energy recovery and curved air delivery technology, which results in a claimed 66% energy saving compared to any other dryer on the market, and as a result delivers considerable carbon and cost savings.
Dr. Zainab Dangana, Wates sustainable technology services manager, said: “Wates is committed to the long-term future of the built environment. Businesses are facing increasing pressures to improve their carbon footprint and, as a result, are looking for solutions that can save both energy and operating costs. It was important to us that our newly refurbished Leatherhead headquarters building reflected our company ethos and we were extremely impressed with the Savortex EcoCurve range and the savings it can deliver.”
Syed Ahmed, CEO at Savortex, said: “This partnership with Wates is just one example of how our hand dryers can help businesses improve efficiencies and decrease costs. Our hand dryers have been designed to transform the washroom market by delivering unrivalled levels of sustainability, energy and operational resource savings.”
