BCR Associates and the water audit process

BCR Associates works with water audit and rebate specialists along with independent water supply partners across the UK to offer the best and most suitable supply chain options in order to recognise and implement significant financial returns for clients. The focus is purely on reducing water costs and associated spend.

How the water audit works:

Step 1: No cost, no obligation desktop survey (Carried out remotely to assess any potential savings)

  • historical usage is reviewed to ensure correct meterage/charges are valid for your supply
  • comparisons with your industry average are carried out to highlight any anomalies

Step 2: Site Survey (Carried out once potential savings are identified)

  • an engineer will visit your site(s) to identify leaks. Any problems are fixed quickly and efficiently by civil works engineers
  • a feasibility study can also be undertaken to see if rainwater harvesting or bore hole technology could benefit your business

Step 3: Final Report

  • a full explanation of findings and any recommendations will be submitted
  • information provided will highlight immediate savings and refund issues and enable you to consider any further recommendations to increase your water sustainability. The costs of works are funded purely through savings made
  • your BCR Associates account manager will provide you with relevant proposals to increase your water sustainable future. Any rebates will be given at this stage

We can also offer your business cost saving advice on the following:

  • Automated meter readings
  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Greywater recycling
  • ECA tax relief for water recycling equipment
  • Trade effluent consents
  • Bore hole feasibility
