You can’t get fitter than a Tardis Fitter.

Quite often, our clients on site, take delivery of a water or waste tank and then say, now we’ve got to fit it…

Unloading the tools and fittings for another fitting job

Right said Sam…

That’s when we tell them, we’ve an experienced team in place for just that.

For site based plumbing and electricals, we’ve trained, experienced people to provide the service to get you operational.

We realise that not all the items on hire from Tardis are simply plug and play. A single portable shower for example, which needs power supply, water supply and drainage arranging.  Then there’s the initial set up of site welfare cabins and toilet blocks.

A couple of weeks ago, we were out in the pouring rain (what did we say about Tardis fitters, unstoppable)?  A two storey welfare and admin block which required hooking up to water in waste out.

As it was a brand new site, there were probably more Tardis bods than site folk that morning.  Firstly, our crane lorry arrived with the much needed tanks.

The waste tank is buried to improve gravity feed

Shortly after, the Tardis fitters who were briefed by the site personnel as to where everything had to be placed.

The waste tank was buried up to its inspection ports at the rear of the block and the water tank sited just round the other side.

While the waste tank was being connected to the cabins, the Tardis H2O on site water tanker arrived and filled the water tank with 5000 litres of clean water for hand washing and toilet flushing purposes.

Once the waste tank was ready for duty, the Tardis crew set about plumbing in the water tank.

Tardis Pump Protection Box

The all important pump protection box housing an electric on-demand pump

An electric on-demand pump was put into the water line, to provide water pressure to the cabin.  This was put inside one of our now famous pump protection boxes, someone thinking ahead to the chilly days a few weeks away.

These custom-made boxes provide weather proofing protection from wind, rain and of course frosty conditions, they really are a must for site based installations.

So, despite everyone being ankle deep in rust coloured mud, the job was completed in a working day and left ready for occupancy by the site staff.

As they say, you can’t get fitter than a Tardis Fitter…

Tardis says it’s CHRISTMAAAASSSS !

It’s accepted we all like a good rest at Christmas and a mince pie or two, but gremlins never rest and someone has to be on call to deal with them.

Although the Tardis crew will be putting up their Christmas stockings hoping for everything they deserve, the operation is a 365 day a year affair and we will be available for emergency call out.

 

The same number as usual and the same level of service applies.

one number

We really hope you won’t need us, but we’ll be there if you do.

Thanks for being with us through 2014 and for following our blog, Twitter feed and Facebook page.

We really enjoyed your pictures of Tardis toilets and tankers you spotted out on location, even on the telly. Keep sending them in and we’ll keep featuring them. For meritorious contributions, we have been know to post out some Tardis goodies as reward, so just keep that in mind.

We plan to continue running humorous features and expanding our instructional videos like our recent Crossrail compliant video, which was very well received.

And of course, when the occasion rises, we’ll be dressing up rather like we did in our onesies for Children in need and our wooly pullies for Save the Children.

Tardis and the Crossrail project

Link

Screen Shot 2014-10-31 at 11.44.44

Crossrail, the largest engineering project in Europe and Tardis has been part of it.

In a nutshell, Crossrail is 73 miles of railway set to serve London and the south east, improving journey times and connecting with many existing lines.

As a supplier of goods and services to the project, Tardis Environmental have invested heavily in our fleet to make them “Crossrail compliant”. This includes the provision of safety equipment that is additional to the level we already send our vehicles to work carrying.

44tonne tanker

Fresnel lenses for example, smaller but similar to those found in lighthouses in this instance they are used to bend light allowing a driver to see personnel or cyclists approaching on the inside blind spot.

Side scan detection is now standard Crossrail  equipment, designed to detect cyclists or pedestrians in close proximity to the nearside.

In practice, audible tones or warnings exterior to the vehicle are triggered when the left hand indicator is activated and should there be a person detected in the field of the scan, the driver inside the cab is alerted by audible tone also.

Some side scan systems have the added safety of exterior cameras greatly reducing the chance of a mishap.

In addition, warning livery is added to the vehicle as are under run bars down each side.

Woe betide any contractor who fails to meet the high standards lain down by Crossrail. Exclusion from all sites and fines meted out often being the penalty.

Safety is in everyone’s interest. Our spec sheets detail our Crossrail compliant vehicles which of course can be used elsewhere, where stringent safety is practised.

Water Bowser

Is it a illegal requirement to have WRAS products?

No it is not illegal to install a product that is not WRAS, but you may need to have proof or prove the compliance in other ways. No WRAS approved products are mainly used in areas where human health could not be compromised. We can provided WRAS approved piping and fitting along with our highly trained Tardis plumber.

How can you tell if its WRAS Approved?

On all WRAS approved there should be a WRAS approval number this is a way of proving that the product is WRAS approved. But even if for say the water bowser is WRAS approved if it was installed or operated incorrectly then this might breach the water regulations 1999. Don’t worry we have a Tardis Plumber who knows all about WRAS installation and operation.
