Delta Faucet has launched its second edition of the Sustainability Challenge that aims to promote future sustainability of water resources in the region.
Once again, the firm paired with American University in Dubai (AUD) with representatives from the universities’ interior design and architecture department, as well as students.
“Building on the success of last year’s campaign, ‘The Delta Faucet Sustainability Challenge’ will expand to include more students and will also focus specifically on water conservation in the hospitality sector. The campaign aims to drive awareness and behavior change with regards to water consumption. Delta Faucet Company is a long-standing pioneer in the advancement of performance standards for water-saving products, and we have developed several groundbreaking technologies that help to promote water conservation,” said Ross Jackson, general manager, Delta Faucet Company, Middle East.
Students are invited to submit original designs that satisfy the design criteria including water conservation, energy efficiency, water quality, alignment with government regulations and durability of design.
The competition will run until mid-April when the top 10 entrants will be selected to present their designs to a judging panel.
Farida Kamber Al Awadhi, president at the Association of Professional Interior Designers (APID), said: “The professional interior designer is knowledgeable about ways to ensure that home, hotel or office fit outs meet water conservation targets. With thoughtful and careful selection of the products specified in our designs, efficiency in water use can be gained. This message, emphasised by The Delta Faucet Sustainability Challenge, serves as a good reminder for the professional community.”
