Installation of the eWater system which through electrolysis of a saline solution produces two natural agents.One is a sanitiser and the other a cleaning liquid. Both have no odour, colour and are not harmful to the environment.This enables a hospital grade cleaning solution to be made on site using only tap water and salt.This will remove the need for packaging, transportation and it also removes all production emissions that are usually associated with the production of chemicals.No chemicals will be used for cleaning, apart from the dishwashers and no 'trade waste' will be produced.
Polyethylene pipework was used for sanitary drainage, rather than the more typical PVC pipework.The manufacture of PVC produces toxins such as carcinogens, mutagens and teratogens, and VDM therefore sought to limit its use in the restaurant
Use of a food safety logging program called Monika which monitors direct from specially designed probes to our network food arrival temperatures, fridge temperatures and cooked food temperatures. All of this information is logged back on to our network for auditing and provides interactive feedback via SMS and email to chefs.This system is used widely in the UK.This greatly minimises food risks, identifies equipment failure or inefficiency and reduces paperwork and manual processing.
Recycling facilities have been integrated into the fitout design to enable effective sorting and recycling of organic waste, waste oil, paper, glass, metal and landfill waste.
Â·Water consumption from air conditioning systems is reduced through the use of air cooled chillers rather than water cooled.Air cooled chillers do not rely on cooling tower systems for heat rejection which use significant amounts of water in the rejection process.
Â·Water meters will be provided to separately meter tenant domestic cold water and eWater usage.This will enable monitoring and tracking of consumption, and will help identify any anomalies such as leaks in the system, helping to reduce water consumption.
Â·High efficiency fixtures and fittings have been used in the kitchen and toilets, reducing water consumption
