Opened in May 2022, GEODIS Park is one of the premier sports and entertainment destinations in the country.

Sustainability is important to Major League Soccer and its fans, so GEODIS Park set out to feature products that not only help the environment, but also look and feel good to fans, patrons, and employees. That’s why the park specified a variety of products from Sloan—a one-stop shop of fixtures that save water, promote hygiene, and offer enhanced aesthetics throughout the restroom.
“The entire process was seamless,” said Dan Farrell, Vice President, Corporate Partnerships, Nashville Soccer Club. “The Sloan products were exactly what we were looking for. It was, from start to finish, a nice, smooth process.”

One Woodward stands as a symbol of Detroit’s renaissance. Situated in the center of Detroit’s Civic Center since 1962, the waterfront property experienced the Motor City’s economic boom of the 1960s, as well as the trying times of the 2000s and the city’s resurgence in recent years.
When the town fell upon harsh economic conditions and jobs in the automobile industry started moving elsewhere, even buildings as iconic as One Woodward suffered. In fact, the building’s occupancy dropped to as low as 20 percent in 2013 when the city’s population dipped by over one million people from its peak in 1950.
But as jobs began coming back to the area and companies like Bedrock Real Estate Services—a firm specializing in the strategic redevelopment of Midwestern urban cores — began purchasing downtown properties, the Motor City underwent a gradual revitalization. From a mere 20 percent occupancy in 2013 to becoming 100 percent occupied in 2017, One Woodward represents Detroit’s revitalization. And with hundreds of its sinks and flushometers specified for the building’s renovation, Sloan is a part of that transformation.
With the building undergoing an extensive redesign, Bedrock needed a product that could meet its plumbing needs. Bedrock specified 220 of Sloan’s ECOS® Flushometers as part of the 26-story building’s renovation, citing the products’ water conservation attributes. The ECOS® Flushometer has automatic dual-flush (1.6/1.1 gpf) or single-flush (1.1 gpf) high efficiency closet options, plus 0.5, 0.25 and 0.125 gpf high efficiency urinal flushometer options. ECOS® flushometers provide hands-free activation for improved hygiene in addition to their excellent water savings.
As part of its green building initiatives, Bedrock also installed 100 AER-DEC® Integrated Sink Systems throughout the building. With a soap dispenser, faucet, hand dryer and sink basin working together at arms-length as one touch-free and hygienic system, the beauty of the AER-DEC® is matched only by its flexibility. Building tenants including Quicken Loans, the Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce, a dentists office and numerous law firms get to experience the future of restroom design with the three-in-one deck unit.
