GreenSource of Inspiration
Murdock Classic Drinking Fountain and AcornVac Vacuum Plumbing System a part of
GreenSource Cincinnati's LEED Gold Certified resource center
Cincinnati, OH (Vocus) April 25, 2010 -- 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.

GreenSource."—Will Housh - COO

Cincinnati we are focused on reducing our usage of environmental resources, especially water."—Mark Vincent -
