As a key component of broader sustainability initiatives, ELM today announced a Premier Partnership with Weathermatic®, a global leader in smart water technology.
As a Weathermatic® partner, ELM will be rolling out systematic approaches to water conservation, including sustainability metrics that will improve irrigation water use on commercial properties through sensor-based analysis and intelligent reporting.
“Highly connected irrigation management systems are one of many ways smart tech is transforming commercial real estate,” said ELM President Bruce Moore Jr. “We are focused on working more closely to advance tech-enabled solutions and work with property owners and managers to meet their sustainability and financial goals, especially when water use restrictions apply,” said ELM President Bruce Moore Jr.
Certified irrigation professional and ELM program manager, James (Jamie) Gorton, is an authoritative voice for landscape water efficiency and planning, noting: “To more effectively manage water consumption, commercial properties must look at outdoor, as well as indoor, water use. Landscaping can account for as much as 70 percent of water use on some properties and we’re looking at multiple ways our clients can save water. Creative approaches to landscape planning, including the use of a less thirsty plant palette, permeable paving, and mulch and soil mixes that maximize water retention and encourage deep-rooted plants, go hand-in-hand with our comprehensive approach to water management and monitoring.”
