BH MANAGEMENT SERVICES AND ECOSYSTEMS PARTNER TO ACHIEVE 36 MILLION GALLONS AND $365,000 IN ANNUAL SAVINGS FOR SILVERBROOK APARTMENTS
DES MOINES, IA (July 10, 2018)—BH Management Services LLC, a division of BH Companies that acquires, improves and manages apartment communities, and EcoSystems, a company that designs and implements water conservation programs, have achieved notable savings for Silverbrook, an apartment community located in Grand Prairie, TX. Their conservation efforts will save the property 36 million gallons of water and more than $365,000 annually, representing a 65% savings in water usage and cost, and an eight-month return on their investment.
The conservation efforts implemented by BH Management, in partnership with EcoSystems, included 936 bathroom retrofits, ridding Silverbrook of old and wasteful toilets, showerheads and aerators. The efficient solution turns a quick ROI for property owners, typically saving 30-50 percent on water and sewer bills, and seeing returns in less than 18 months. In this case, the savings achieved the shortest ROI to date.
“Through our partnership with EcoSystems, the savings we have secured for Silverbrook have exceeded all expectations,” said Kate Miller, Asset Manager at BH Management Services. “We are always looking for ways to create value for our properties while having a positive impact on the environment. EcoSystems has been a critical partner in helping us achieve that—offering impactful conservation consultation and project management from start to finish.”
EcoSystems is currently executing a national retrofit program in partnership with BH Management on more than 25 properties located across the U.S. “We are thrilled to partner with BH Management, bringing impactful solutions with an environmental upside to one of the largest multifamily management companies in the nation,” said Richard Lamondin, CEO and co-founder of EcoSystems. “It’s our hope that more property owners across the nation begin implementing water conservation efforts—understanding the benefits for both business and the environment.”
