In 2016, Sydney Fish Market adopted SUMS technology to efficiently manage its water use. Sydney Fish Market is a site that includes multiple retailers (tenants) and functional areas, with varying water requirements for day-to-day business operations, which run 7 days a week.
To capture the water usage across the site, SUMS Group installed 30 data loggers connected to both tenancy and building water meters. Through the SUMS Portal, the Market’s facilities manager gains full visibility of current and historical water consumption data in one central place, which provides unique insights that were previously unknown or unclear to the business and tenants.
Rod Gaete, Facilities Manager at Sydney Fish Market, says:
Sydney Fish Market is a highly frequented venue and city attraction. Given the nature of our business, water is critical to our operations. Thankfully, the SUMS approach and solutions have worked seamlessly and reliably behind the scenes for many years, helping us to manage costs, save time, and meet our sustainability reporting needs. With SUMS’ built-in ‘alert’ system, I have the peace of mind that if there are any significant water use changes to business as usual, I’ll know about it and can fix it.Janelle Lofthus
