Longleat, Warminster, Wiltshire
Type of works: installation of Dyson Airblade AB03 hand dryers reduce energy and waste at safari park.
Open to the public since 1949, Longleat draws nearly 800,000 visitors a year with its rides, attractions and safari park. Conservation and environmental impact are central as are carbon footprint and waste.
Were always looking at ways to reduce environmental impact, explains Marketing and Events Manager, Jo Sparrow. Through dedicated recycling and installing things like energy-saving light bulbs weve already reduced our carbon footprint. So using paper towels in our washrooms just didnt fit in the waste creates landfill and the manufacturing process isnt carbon efficient, adds Jo. We needed an energy-saving alternative to cope with high footfall and meet our wider environmental objectives.
Longleat installed 36 Dyson Airblade hand dryers across the estate they are the first location to have the AB03 model, made with durable polycarbonate ABS. The reaction has been very good, comments Jo. Were using less energy and reducing waste also the low carbon manufacturing process of the Dyson Airblade hand dryer fits our environmental goals. Visitors really enjoy using them they work quickly and have become part of the experience.
Some of our visitors chose the Dyson Airblade hand dryer as the highlight of their day impressive when youre competing with lions and tigers!
AB03 is made from a tough, polycarbonate ABS for regular washrooms and is 50% less carbon-intensive to manufacture than AB01.
