Murdock classic fountain

The advantage of the AcornVac system is evident in the small amount of water used per flush. At GreenSource Cincinnati we are focused on reducing our usage of environmental resources, especially water.

GreenSource Cincinnati, created by Monroe Mechanical, is meant “To inspire the Midwest building community with energy efficient, sustainable technologies.” Over 50 technology partners were hand-selected to display their green products “in action” as part of a resource center for viable green options in today’s commercial construction. A Murdock Classic Drinking Fountain and the AcornVac Vacuum Plumbing System were two of those chosen to proudly complete this LEED Gold Certified building.

As a LEED Gold Certified building, GreenSource Cincinnati is available to architects, engineers, building owners, property managers, data center managers—anyone involved in the growing green technologies marketplace. AcornVac was also the best solution to retrofit for water savings, since its flexible, above-ground design required very little disturbance to the building and results in an overall water use reduction of up to 68 percent. Murdock’s Classic Design was chosen because of its 80% recycled material as well as its lead-free and low-flow engineering. What’s more, Murdock’s traditional model dates back to 1853, and blends in perfectly with the building’s historical setting. The GreenSource Cincinnati Grand Opening and ribbon-cutting event takes place March 18th, 2010.

"The Murdock fountain we installed on the GreenRoof captures part of the history we were trying to preserve at GreenSource."—Will Housh - COO
