Ground Control reduce emissions on United Utilities contract


At the end of April we introduced battery powered grounds maintenance equipment to our United Utilities, EMCOR UK contract at Lingley Mere Business Park, UU head office.

Continuing our focus on innovation, sustainability, and reduction of our carbon footprint, we have invested £2000 in brand new battery powered equipment, adding a blower, long arm hedgecutter, short arm hedgecutter and strimmer to the contract at Lingley Mere.

The new equipment was issued to our DE team at the end of April, and has enabled us to better fulfil our contract with United Utilities at their head office. A lot of our work surrounds clean water testing labs, where petrol powered equipment is not suitable due to potential contamination of the water quality testing. The new equipment removes the need for slower manual equipment near the building, giving our team on site more time to further improve the site standards.

As well as reducing the burning of fossil fuels, our new eco-friendly equipment greatly reduces noise pollution on the estate for site users and all wildlife present. We use zero emission handheld tools on numerous sites around the country, including the National Maritime Museum.

Regional Contracts Manager, Luke Plass, who manages the contract, commented; “It’s becoming more and more important for us to work in ways that are sustainable, reducing our carbon footprint. The tools have proved much easier and safer to use, as they eradicate the severe vibration that comes with using petrol powered tools.  Our continued partnership with United Utilities is testament to our team’s hard work on this contract, and we are pleased to be able to continue an outstanding service delivery in-line with their requirements.”
