Project Outline

Forterra Building Products Ltd is a leading manufacturer of construction products including bricks, blocks and chimney, roofing and flue systems. Production of these products requires a good ventilation system due to the amount of dust created during the manufacturing process.


Having overseen Forterra’s legionella monitoring for a while, the company decided to engage us to give its ventilation system a thorough clean as production re-started following a period of closure. It was necessary  to insert doors into the system in order to access it. The clean was an extensive job, requiring 3 people for 4 days. The results were well worth it; the system is now significantly more efficient, creating a much cleaner and safer production environment and allowing for more effective recycling of by-products of the manufacturing process.


“The job went really well: Aquatrust was very helpful and the engineers were always punctual and hard working. We were very pleased with it and will be working with Aquatrust again in the future.”
