A WATER treatment firm based in Monmouth has been shortlisted for a top UK construction award.

Siltbuster has been recognised for its launch of Clarity, an online, real-time water quality monitoring and reporting system, with a place among the finalists in the ‘Best Innovation’ category for this year’s Construction News Awards.

The awards, in their 24th year, celebrate the best companies, projects and achievements within the construction industry.

The Clarity system helps construction sites ensure that all water discharged off-site is clean and compliant with environmental regulations.

The technology sends alarm notifications to site managers if any problems are detected, such as the presence of pollutants in water being discharged.

If left unmanaged, this could result in environmental harm, fines and corporate brand damage. With Clarity, construction sites are able to respond rapidly to engage preventative measures and stop potential pollution incidents from occurring.

The technology also provides essential reassurance to regulatory bodies, allows for robust data collection and protects the environment.

Tristan Hughes, Construction Sales Manager at Siltbuster, expressed his pride at the recognition.

“Construction is an inevitable requirement of human existence, but how the impacts are managed is down to us,” Mr Hughes said.

“Designed in-house at our water treatment centre of excellence, Clarity has taken the monitoring of water treatment, both here and internationally, to the next level.

“We’re thrilled that Clarity has been shortlisted in such a fiercely contested category at the main awards for the construction industry.

“Good luck to the other nominees, but we will have our fingers crossed on the night.”

The winners will be announced at a ceremony in London in July.
