TOTO has installed its high-performance, water-saving plumbing products in the Corinthians Arena in São Paulo, Brazil, the home of the Corinthians Paulista soccer team.
"As with all major sports venue projects, the competition for the Corinthians Stadium was strong, and TOTO was evaluated against the strongest brands in the region,” said David Krakoff, president of TOTO Brazil. "Therefore, as a relatively new brand in
Brazil, we were particularly proud that TOTO was chosen for this stadium, which is certainly among the finest in the world.”
The Design-Build Team for the Corinthians Arena (a/k/a Arena de São Paulo) selected the manufacturer’s high-performance plumbing products for their water-saving technology and energy-saving capability. In the Arena's high-traffic restrooms, engineers installed TOTO’s 1.9 liters per flush urinals (LPF) and 4.8 LPF wall-mounted toilets. They also installed the company's water-saving EcoPower sensor flush valves and faucets, which use flowing water to power the electronics. There are also water-saving shower systems in the team locker rooms.
“The level of thought and creativity that went into the design and development of this stadium was impressive,” said Krakoff. “It was an honor to work with Mr. Anibal Coutinho, the stadium’s architect, and to participate in his highly evolved design process. It was also amazing and inspiring to see the level of dedication that the Corinthians organization had to building a facility that would offer a first-class experience to every person in every seat, regardless of the seat price or location.”
