The plumbing design of Davies Center incorporates strategies that, together, use 20 percent less water than the use baseline calculated for the building. Increasing water efficiency reduces the burden on municipal water supply and wastewater systems.
All restroom fixtures are water-conserving. Low-flow fixtures consume only one-half gallon per minute, using increased water pressure and thorough aeration to match the effectiveness of their older, less efficient counterparts. Motion-activated fixtures conserve water because the sinks can’t be left on, and they are also more health-friendly. Toilets are dual flush, allowing you to decide how much water to use — matching the 1.6 gallons-per-flush baseline, or saving 31 percent with 1.1 gallons-per-flush. The average is a savings of 15 percent.
