FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Los Angeles, CA. – December 5, 2011 — Falcon Waterfree Technologies is pleased to announce that four buildings with Falcon Waterfree Urinals have won The Outstanding Building of the Year (“TOBY”) Award.
The Outstanding Building of the Year “TOBY” Awards Program has been identified as the most prestigious of its kind in the commercial real estate industry. The award recognizes quality and awards excellence in the daily management of the office buildings.
The Edison Award was given to the Pacific Corporate Towers in El Segundo, CA. The Southern California Edison Energy Management award recognizes achievement of excellence in property management through the effective implementation of energy efficiency, demand response and greenhouse gas reduction programs. Falcon Waterfree Urinals are exclusively found throughout the Pacific Corporate Towers and each Falcon Waterfree Urinal saves an average of 40,000 gallons of treated, fresh water each year. That is the equivalent of nearly nine full tanker trucks of water that could be used for more essential purposes. Additionally, with Falcon technology, water does not have to be pumped to or from the urinal. This significant energy savings dramatically reduces carbon dioxide emissions – emissions that contribute to global warming. Each Falcon Waterfree Urinal saves up to 720 pounds of CO2 per year.
3415 South Sepulveda Boulevard won the TOBY Award for buildings between 100,000-249,999 square feet. Sepulveda Center, a 178,157 square foot, 12 floor asset, has been repositioned with the Best In Class level of service and state of the art building equipment, including Falcon Waterfree Urinals. Located right off the 405 freeway, this polished landmark building has a dedicated team committed to providing its tenants with exceptional service and maintaining a Class A business environment.
The TOBY Award for buildings with 500,000-1 million square feet went to Watt Plaza in Los Angeles. Watt Plaza is a twin 23-story office tower complex consisting of approximately 900,000 square feet, including an amenity-rich 36,000 square foot retail corridor adjoining the complex on the ground floor.
The Gas Company Tower in Los Angeles won the TOBY Award for buildings with over 1 million square feet. Built in 1991, the Gas Company Tower is a LEED Gold Certified, Class A office building. Soaring 54 stories on Fifth Street between Grand Avenue and Olive Street, the property was the second tower in the Los Angeles Central Library Redevelopment Plan. Falcon Waterfree Urinals promote the water conservation goals of the LEED Green Building Rating System. Up to 13% of the points required for LEED-EBOM certification can be earned by retrofitting existing urinals with Falcon Waterfree Urinals.
