Summerland Apartments, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

Avantages du complexe résidentiel d'une solution d'installation d'une nouvelle tuyauterie de plomberie Uponor AquaPEX®

Conçu exclusivement pour les adultes âgés, Summerland Apartments est le foyer de l'un des plus importants atriums tropicaux, reliant deux tours en béton de 16 étages pour créer un milieu intérieur écologique et verdoyant pour les résidents. Lorsque la structure résidentielle a eu besoin de renouveler la tuyauterie de son réseau de plomberie galvanisée défaillant, le propriétaire WRE Development Ltd. a souhaité une solution qui offrirait une meilleure longévité et une performance supérieure pour durer pendant des décennies.

Points forts du projet

  • Complexe résidentiel de 16 étages
  • Réseau de plomberie galvanisée défaillant
  • Installation d'une nouvelle tuyauterie avec le réseau de plomberie Uponor AquaPEX
  • Propriétaire : WRE Development Ltd.
  • Entrepreneur : Advance Services Group Inc.

Produits utilisés

  • Tuyauterie Uponor AquaPEX®
  • Raccords en plastique technique (EP) ProPEX®

La flexibilité du tuyau réduit l'impact sur la structure existante, en laissant de plus petits trous dans les murs et les temps de réparation pour les résidents

L'entreprise contractante du bâtiment, Advance Services Group Inc., a choisi un réseau de plomberie Uponor AquaPEX® comme la meilleure solution pour le projet en raison de la grande durabilité, la flexibilité et la performance éprouvée des tuyaux en PEX et des raccords ProPEX®.

« La facilité d'installation a rendu le projet bien plus facile », a déclaré Jeff Arnel d'Advance Services Group Inc.

L'ensemble du projet n'a eu besoin que de quatre installateurs et a été exécuté — notamment la réparation, la peinture et la finition des cloisons sèches — neuf mois du début à la fin grâce à la flexibilité du tuyau en PEX et au rayon de courbure serré. L'installation d'une nouvelle tuyauterie a fait appel à Uponor PEX pour des dimensions de tuyaux de ½ po à 3 po, ce qui a permis à l'équipe de passer des colonnes montantes à la plomberie privative de manière efficace.

La facilité d'installation a rendu le projet bien plus facile.

Underfloor cooling adds value to new construction

Postitalo, the former post office building in downtown Tampere, got a new look in 2017 when it was renovated into new commercial premises and a block of flats was built on top.

Line renovations in blocks of flats can be conducted significantly faster and more easily. The Uponor R2I cassette makes for a problem-free renovation. Thanks to advanced prefabrication, the project period is shorter and the risks are lower. The As Oy Varsta company in Turku is the first R2I pilot site. The site will be completed to an expedited schedule.
