Ally Pally water monitoring deal for ESG
ESG, which provides testing, inspection and compliance services, has been awarded a two-year contract to carry out water monitoring, assessment and treatment works by Alexandra Park and Palace Charitable Trust. Following a competitive tender process, the iconic North London venue, known as ‘Ally Pally', is now benefitting from a wide range of specialist water hygiene services.
Large, historic buildings will often have central hot water storage with extensive pipework. During the summer months especially, these can potentially provide an ideal breeding ground for harmful bacteria, such as Legionella, which is why conscientious building managers must take steps to minimise the risk. Under health and safety law, property owners and facilities managers have a legal obligation to safeguard a building’s water users by identifying, managing and controlling sources at risk.
ESG’s contract at Alexandra Park and Palace Charitable Trust addresses these requirements, and includes regular bacterial analysis of the building’s closed circuits and domestic services. ESG’s water management team will also monitor the temperature of the Palace’s water system and provide softener services to minimise the risk of water contamination.
Tim James, estates and facilities manager at Alexandra Park and Palace Charitable Trust, said: “Safety will always be our highest priority, and we take the condition of all our facilities very seriously. ESG’s support is proving to be invaluable. Having left the palace’s water services in the safest hands, our internal staff members can focus on providing a world class experience for guests through their other important maintenance duties.”
Mick Pratt, commercial director, Built Environment Services, ESG, said: “Every year in the UK, there are between 300 and 400 reported cases of Legionnaires’ disease, making the appropriate maintenance of water systems a key issue in today’s world of facilities management.
“We’re proud to support this prestigious London landmark in maintaining highest levels of water quality. Our specialist teams have worked in partnership to provide a complete water treatment solution for this historic venue, ensuring it remains continually compliant.”
