Zurn Water Efficiency and Lean Solutions Validated at ASPE
Time and Motion Studies Quantify Significant Labor Savings
ERIE, PA – Zurn Industries, LLC, has big news to share at the 2016 American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) Convention and Expo: calculated, bottom-line savings achieved by its industry-leading lean construction and water efficiency solutions. The ASPE expo takes place October 31 to November 1 in Phoenix, AZ. Zurn’s booth number is 411.
Zurn recently teamed with commercial plumbing educators and installers to conduct time and motion studies. The goal was take their lean construction solutions on the road to calculate true, recognizable savings. During ASPE Zurn will showcase the results of these studies, confirming Zurn’s commitment to delivering labor saving solutions to customers.
These labor-saving results will be on hand at the Zurn booth. One example includes the Z415-BZ Post-Pour Adjustable Drain, which was measured against a conventional floor drain. The installation time for the Z415-BZ was 13 minutes vs. the 31 minutes required to ensure leveling of the conventional floor drain. The Zurn Z415-BZ yielded a 58% reduction in total installation time.
“Zurn lean construction products were installed in a side-by-side matchup with standard products.” says Dave Gomo, Manager, National Contractor Accounts for Zurn, “We were able to demonstrate that Zurn delivers indisputable, bottom-line labor savings.”
While at Booth 411, customers will have the opportunity to learn more about Zurn and their goal to save 114 billion gallons of water over the next decade. Earlier this year, Zurn received recognition in a White House report about bringing sustainability to the nation’s water resources. Zurn was the only company in the plumbing products category to be included in the report.
The expansive booth for Zurn will also feature exciting new prototypes – including a visually interactive specification tool, and new product designs for the expansion of their Finished Plumbing category. Booth visitors will be the first to view these new concepts and given the opportunity to offer valuable input.
