APB Britco selected Uridan waterless urinals from Watersave Australia once again for the new exhibition venue at Glebe Island in Sydney.

Former APB Britco client, the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre (SCEC) in Darling Harbour had installed 102 Uridan ‘Admiral’ waterless urinals in 2006, which achieved significant water and costs savings for the venue over a seven-year period.

With the SCEC closing in December 2013 to make way for the construction of the new International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney, a new venue at Glebe Island opened in February 2014 to provide an interim home for the city’s large trade and consumer shows.

The venue, Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island (SEC@GI) also required water and energy efficient solutions, which led APB Britco and Coates Hire once again to the Uridan range.

Joshua Chaplin from APB Britco explains that energy and resource efficiency was of paramount importance for the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island. Uridan ‘Crew’ waterless trough urinals, which provide water and energy savings without compromising the aesthetics, were selected for installation.

Sixteen Uridan ‘Crew’ waterless trough urinals (equivalent to approximately 48 single bowl urinals) were installed in amenity buildings built by APB Britco. Apart from the obvious water savings, Uridan waterless urinals offer the additional advantages of low installation costs, ongoing energy savings, operating cost benefits and outstanding Danish design.

SEC@GI Venue Presentation Coordinator William Konya welcomed the decision to install Uridan products onsite, commenting that they were very pleased with the choice of the Uridan solution and the fact that Watersave Australia was once again contracted to complete the maintenance.

Sydney Water estimates that a single bowl urinal saves approximately 50-60,000 litres of water per year. With 16 Uridan Crew waterless troughs on site, it can be estimated that the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island will be saving in the region of 2800 KL of water per year.
