Avac’s vacuum plumbing systems can offer a variety of development opportunities to schools and universities including water and cost savings; better health outcomes; shorter construction and renovation programmes; and maintenance benefits.
Avac’s vacuum drainage solutions allow the relocation of existing plumbing fixtures to adapt to the emerging requirements of the institution. In addition, greater flexibility for refurbishment means University Faculties can programme more frequent upgrades to stay at the forefront of their respective disciplines.
Our ability to re-route piping and move multiple waste streams [e.g. greywater, sewerage and trade waste] provides Education projects with greater options to meet Research and students’ needs. For example, a floor of office space can be converted to a medical lab or alternatively, a juice bar could be added to the foyer of a lecture hall.
Avac’s vacuum toilets do not splash during the flush cycle, significantly reducing the spread of bacteria on Campus, promoting a healthier environment for students and reducing the number of sick days.
Avac vacuum toilets are some of Australia’s most efficient and use from as little as 0.7 litres of water per flush, providing a significant reduction in annual water and sewage costs when compared to conventional toilets. Calculating the savings compared to conventional toilets is as much as 3.2 litres per flush multiplied by the number of students who attend the university or school annually, i.e. more than half of all toilet flushing water will be saved.
This translates to further savings via the down-sizing of wastewater treatment plant.
