The new strategic partnership between these two national leaders promises to expand and strengthen the presence of both companies in the emerging market for systems that harvest stormwater (http://wahaso.com/stormwater_harvesting.php) for reuse. “We are excited to have been selected by Oldcastle as their partner in delivering integrated systems for stormwater harvesting,” said John Bauer, President of Water Harvesting Solutions. “Storage and harvesting go hand-in-hand with any system, and we have the opportunity to work together to grow the market.” Wahaso specializes in commercial systems for water reuse and has designed hundreds of systems for projects throughout the U.S. and Canada; Oldcastle is the largest building materials company in North America, with 50 precast manufacturing plants and facilities. Oldcastle’s modular Storm Capture system creates an infinitely variable cistern configuration that is ideal for storing large quantities of stormwater for reuse.
The partnership with Oldcastle will enhance Wahaso’s access to projects in the rapidly growing stormwater management industry. An increasing number of communities and municipalities are requiring property developers to integrate stormwater detention systems into their project designs in order to manage the water run-off from rooftops and parking areas. These stormwater storage systems can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars with little direct benefit to the property owner. By converting the storage from simple detention into retention for a harvesting system (with a marginal increase in total cost), property owners can save water costs and earn a return on the stormwater storage system investment for the life of the project. The new partnership brings together the expertise of both companies to deliver the most efficient and effective integrated solutions for stormwater harvesting.
As the green building movement gains momentum, more and more businesses, property owners, and governmental agencies will turn to strategies such as rainwater, greywater, and stormwater harvesting in order to conserve municipal water for potable uses and to improve the overall sustainability of their projects. Wahaso's association with Oldcastle will help both companies continue to innovate and succeed in the swiftly developing world of green building and sustainability.
Wahaso (Water Harvesting Solutions) is a design-build firm specializing in custom commercial systems for harvesting rainwater, greywater (graywater), and other on-site water sources for non-potable applications like toilet flushing, irrigation and evaporative cooling system make-up. Wahaso provides consulting and system design services to architects and engineers and then delivers systems that are preassembled and tested on skids for installation by local contractors. The company was founded in 2008 and has designed systems for nearly 600 projects in the U.S. and Canada. Visit http://wahaso.com or call toll-free at 800-580-5350.
