Efficient solution to control and monitor water supply and mitigate the risk of leaks.

Located in the heart of Chelsea, the new development brings a sophisticated European aesthetic to West London. Featuring stunning landscapes of tree-lined avenues and meandering waterways, the neighbourhood perfectly combines tranquillity and metropolitan living. A superb collection of upmarket shops, restaurants, and bars are also moments away at Kings Road and Imperial Wharf.

The project

Chelsea is the exciting transformation of a 7.8 acre brownfield site into a new development based around waterside living. Over half of the Chelsea project is dedicated to carefully considered open spaces, such as landscaped gardens, lawns and flowerbeds. The project is comprised of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, where spacious homes are filled with light and built to high specification.

With high-rise residential developments such as this one requiring intricate plumbing pipework, building services contractor, Briggs & Forrester Living, needed an innovative water management system to control and monitor water supply, mitigate the risk of leaks and the costly effects of water damage.

Chelsea Creek Tenant Valves

Our involvement

The Tenant Valve Advance and MultiSafe Leak Detector Control Valve by Reliance Valves were specified by Briggs & Forrester to help fulfil their client’s risk management plans and leak mitigation aims.

Saving time and space by combining several functions into one compact unit, the Tenant Valve Advance includes a BS1010 approved stop valve, a pressure reducing valve and strainer, double check valve, dual-reading pressure gauge, and a connection point for an optional water meter. The combination valve effectively controls and monitors water supply to individual dwellings, while its single piece design significantly reduces the number of leak points compared to a traditional chain of individual valves. It was also more cost-effective and easier to install and maintain. All of which were crucial to Briggs & Forrester’s building design.

Reliance Valves MultiSafe Leak Detector Control Valve was also selected to provide an intelligent leak detection system that continuously measures the flow rate, pressure, temperature, and the hardness of water. In addition to automatically shutting off water in the event of a leak or an abnormal water pattern, the system also sends an alert to the concierge as well as the occupants, via a free App.

Reliance Valves MultiSafe leak detection system was selected following trials with several manufacturers on performance, connectivity, control versatility and end user functions for leak protection and water usage. Our clients risk management plan and their aim for innovative leak mitigation was of paramount importance for protecting the project during the fit-out phases and was a prerequisite to be “online” prior to the testing and filling stages.

The system’s wireless connectivity, web-based platform and mobile app is ideal for real-time app alerts and email notifications, which performs superbly, fully satisfying the requirement of directive for effective leak mitigation. The leak detection valve coupled with the multifunctional space saving Reliance Tenant Valve Advance assembly, were the ideal paring in our aim to reduce risk of possible leaks.
