The HydroTap with a tailored HydroCare plan is the perfect drinking water solution for law firm

The brief
Ashtons Legal

Undertaking an office refurbishment is always a good opportunity to review your company’s drinking water supply. It’s often the case that with growth, the kettle is no longer up to the job of providing your workforce with the hot drinks they need, day after day.

This was certainly the case for law firm Ashtons Legal, who, with a number of sites throughout East Anglia, needed a more convenient solution. With a new office to furnish as well as existing sites to update, the company wanted to not only address the practical - and necessary - need of drinking water, but also wanted to ensure the offices were ergonomic and maximised productivity.

“We first started using Zip products three years ago,” states Leonard Newcombe, head of administration and facilities, “we got to the point where we were getting through so many kettles it was just ridiculous, not to mention the hazardous and untidy nature of trailing leads. We really needed a mains-fed system that could handle the volume of drinks required.”

With up to 170 people in their new office and newly designated tea points within each open-plan floor, Leonard knew that a reliable solution was required. “Having used Zip HydroBoil previously, as well as having had some recommendations for the Zip HydroTap, we had no hesitation in going with the HydroTap. The taps are the ideal solution as they tick both the functional and aesthetic boxes.”

Leonard specified a mixture of boiling and boiling and chilled models to allow staff convenient access to pure-tasting water for both hot drinks and refreshment. “The taps are professional-looking and fit perfectly within the new tea points,” adds Leonard. “Our growing teams can quickly help themselves to drinks without having to wait for the kettle - and from my point of view, I don’t have to worry about another kettle failing.”

“I’m really pleased that we stayed with Zip,” continues Leonard, “They’ve always been so reliable which is a crucial benefit. We want to make sure each team has a comfortable, inspiring workspace and having instant access to water is part of this.”

In addition, having the HydroTaps means staff no longer need to bring in single-use plastic bottles. “It’s a bonus to be able to say that as a company we are reducing plastic waste,” adds Leonard. “Of course we want to do our bit for the environment, so having the HydroTaps allow our teams to enjoy drinking water by re-filling their own bottles and not contributing to the plastic waste problem.”

For additional peace of mind, Ashtons Legal also benefits from Zip’s HydroCare plan, which provides regular filter changes, sanitisation and planned services. This ensures the products continue to deliver convenient hydration, day after day.

"“Knowing that the taps will be serviced regularly to keep them running like clockwork is fantastic. It is a big task that is removed from my to-do list and represents excellent value. I couldn’t be happier.”"
