Case Study: Canada's Second Largest Soccer Stadium Goes Green
When more than 13,000 fans filled Saputo Stadium in Montreal, Canada, on Inauguration Night last May, Moen Canada also was on site to make sure everything was flowing smoothly - literally.
The latest in Moen Commercial electronic faucets and flush valves had just been installed in every one of the public- and player-area washrooms of the new 1.6 million-sq.-ft. soccer complex.
The project called for about 225 Moen electronic lavatory faucets and flush valves, according to Sylvain Fournier, Moen Canada’s eastern regional manager.
Saputo Stadium director of operations Éric Girouard said that contractors were instructed to use products that not only meet design specs and have style, but also are heavy-duty and vandal-resistant.
Plomberie Domier’s President, Joe Ierfino, said that the above-deck design of the faucets made them hassle-free and readily accessible, if need be. He noted that the electronic Free-Hand line offers a hygienic solution in preventing the spread of germs and bacteria and the built-in motion sensors control the flow of water at 1.9L/minute, automatically reducing volume used, sewage bills and hot water consumption.
All of Moen’s commercial electronic products save energy and are backed by a five-year warranty against material or manufacturing defects.
The stadium’s facilities have been used by more than 265,000 people so far, and no service calls have been needed, Ierfino said.
