We are good at what we do but always want to be better.
The Grosvenor Estate has also installed rainwater harvesters. The idea is that rainwater can be collected in a central tank and then used to flush lavatories and supply any so-called ‘greywater’ requirements. At Smithy Farm on the Eaton Estate, a 400 litre tank was installed below ground in a field to the rear of the buildings. The rainwater is collected at a central point on each building and then piped to a control unit housed within one of the plant rooms. When required, water from the tank is pumped back to the buildings.

C&C Catering Equipment are proud to announce they have been awarded both the ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001: 2004 certifications.
These ISO International Standards will ensure that C&C Catering Equipment provide a service that is safe, reliable and of the highest quality to their customers across the UK. The standards are also strategic business tools that will help C&C reduce costs by minimising waste and errors while increasing their productivity.
In order to gain the ISO 9001:2008 approval, C&C had to demonstrate a quality management system where they are able to consistently provide a service that meets their customers’ needs, while ensuring they also meet the applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
The ISO 14001:2004 standard offers a framework for an effective environmental management system. It is used by C&C to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste and drive down costs. Their ISO 14001 certification signifies that their environmental impact is being measured and improved.
We are now in the process of improving our carbon footprint further with the addition of more energy efficient vehicles to our fleet, including BMW 1 Series Efficient Dynamics. The cars achieve their impressive statistics through clever engineering – including the use of wider gear ratios, start/stop technology and highly aerodynamic styling.
