Paul White – Chairman
Meltham Sports and Community Centre provides facilities for no less than five different sports clubs in the area, and is a focal point for the local community. The centre was one of the first to install seven of the water-efficient ES4 toilets, designed by Elemental Solutions and supplied by local company Green Building Store.
When it was decided that the old sports pavilions needed to be expanded and completely refurbished, the local cricket, bowling, football, rugby and athletics clubs all came together to form a community enterprise. This culminated in a £1.2 million project that involved constructing a new sports hall, as well as creating a large bar, events room and six changing areas and demolishing the old pavilions.
Paul White, a chairman of the community enterprise, was keen to minimise water usage, particularly as the group are responsible for raising their own funds for the long-term running costs of the centre. The ultra low-flush ES4 WC supplied by Green Building Store not only helps to conserve water, but in doing so it also offers considerable savings over conventional WCs and has the potential to reduce WC water use by 25%.
Paul was very pleased with the ES4 WCs “The products are excellent and fit in very well…I would definitely recommend them for anyone undertaking a similar project and I would certainly consider using them again in the future.”
