Water Savings & Toilet Use

February 2, 2011

According to BuildingGreen.com, toilet flushing accounts for up to 40% of residential water use, and is also the largest use of water in most commercial buildings. Replacing your current toilet, that most likely uses atleast 1.6 gallons per flush, for a product that is more eco-friendly, could contribute to a very significant water savings.

Dual-flush toilets are becoming more popular in the U.S. and use atleast 20% less water than the federal minimum of 1.6 gpf. These dual-flush toilets are used in all of Allegrone Home Builders' new homes that are LEED Registered.

Check out BuildingGreen.com for more detailed information on these dual-flush toilets and the significant water savings that they contribute to.

We are all MAKERS with the power to build resilient communities.

Our team had a wonderful time participating in Yo-Yo Ma’s “Day of Action”, where teams of local businesses and organizations united under a single tent to build tables for the community.  The tables are made from local ash trees and inscribed with local responses that complete the phrase “The Berkshires make...”. #yoyoma #dayofaction #community #intheberkshires
Earlier this week we celebrated the completion of Berkshire Place’s new independent living community, known as 89 South. #intheberkshires

Allegrone Companies provided design-build services for the three-story, Richardsonian Romanesque building located in the heart of Pittsfield. The new space houses 18 living units, primarily one- and two-bedroom setups, all of which express the 21st century historic character and new-age transitional design while offering the latest technologies.  #historic #seniorlivingcommunity
