Although this project was on a much smaller scale than many of MIW’s high-profile undertakings, it still required a high degree of attention to detail. Finding the right bottle filler for the store was imperative to the success of the project – the promotion of a sustainable culture and practises is only viable if the equipment meets demands.
MIW’s entire catalogue of bottle filler range is WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) approved, so finding a unit which adhered to all the necessary health and safety standards was the easiest part of the project. With sustainability and speed of use being highly important factors, a mains-fed unit was the obvious option. Of those available, the Halsey Taylor Endura II Tubular Outdoor Bottle Filling Station was the most fitting proposition. Despite being intended for an indoor site, the Endura II’s sturdy yet slimline build was the ideal fit for a high footfall area. Its stainless steel, vandal-resistant body requires very little space, while being easily accessible for all. The fact that the unit is GreenSpec™ listed due to its extremely low power consumption was also an influential feature. And the powder-coated finish was ideal for customisation.
Once a suitable bottle filler had been identified, MIW worked with The Body Shop’s Project Management Team to ensure the perfect finish in the brand’s characteristic green, completed with the message of their choice.
An installation timetable was then agreed, to ensure that the unit would be ready to use prior to the store’s official relaunch.
