Spica partners with Carillion to pioneer innovative Legionella monitoring project
A two month pilot across eight public buildings to replace manually intensive Legionella monitoring with a remote IOT system; saving money and improving efficiency.
Spica, partnering with Carillion, a leading integrated support service provider, has piloted a remote Legionella monitoring system across eight sites, including retail premises and large corporate buildings.
Spica’s Devicepoint® for Healthy Water is a simple, retrofit IOT offering, providing real-time water system monitoring solution for Legionella control. It replaces traditional manual techniques with connected devices, taking real-time data readings on pipe temperature which feed into the Devicepoint® dashboard for easy remote access.
This innovative and first-of-a-kind IOT solution offers huge cost savings, better accuracy to exceed regulatory requirements and a proactive approach to tackling this widespread health risk.
“The pilot study was a great success, and we are hoping to roll this innovation out across all of our contracts this autumn, delivering significant benefits to our clients. Our partnerships with innovative SME’s like Spica technologies allow us to work together to devise and deliver leading solutions for our clients and we look forward to our continued relationship in the future.”

“The benefits of Internet of Things powered systems such as this are numerous in many commercial, residential and public sector environments, as we move towards a future of Smart Cities. Spica are excited to be working alongside Carillion, on their journey to disrupt and improve upon traditional business models within the FM sector.”
