With the Abbey Gardens installation being a pilot study and deciding factor over whether the public petition would be fully answered, it was especially important to find a refill station that would appeal to as wide a number of park visitors as possible.
Taking all of Winchester Council’s prerequisites into consideration, MIW recommended the Halsey Taylor 4420BF1UDB – Endura II Tubular Outdoor Bottle Filling Station. This is one of the most versatile bottle fillers on the market, providing both standard height, wheelchair accessible drinking fountain bubbler and bottle filler and an additional ground level bubbler for dogs. Made from powder coated stainless steel, it is highly durable. And that, combined with the security screwed cabinet and hands-free operation, provides vandal resistance. The unit also meets all the criteria specified by the council’s Technical Division. While the splash-free laminar flow, rapid fill and an inline strainer ensure the best quality experience for users.
Once the bottle filler had been selected, MIW worked with the Winchester City Council Project Management Team to arrange a suitable installation time.
