Not many school systems have a history as rich as that in Nashville. Its oldest school presently in operation dates back to 1806. Over the years, the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools (MNPS) has evolved into one of the most racially, ethnically and socio-economically diverse school districts in the country. It's comprised of 139 schools, including not only elementary, middle and high schools; but also three alternative, four special education and five charter schools. MNPS may have a rich history, but its buildings have seen significant wear and tear. Most notably, its restrooms and kitchens, two of the most-often used rooms in the schools, have required considerable renovations in recent years.
"The maintenance team at MNPS contacted Ferguson to assist in seeking out new lavatory faucets, because their previous models weren't lasting and had to be replaced constantly (on average, every one to two months)," said Rick Hollis, Product Specialist, Ferguson. "We worked with Moen initially on a trial run and installed three M•Dura™ heavy-duty faucets in one of their most heavily-used restrooms, to see how long they would last. That was two-and-a-half years ago, and we've never had to replace a faucet."
