Project Highlights

  • Developer: Magellan Developer Group, LLC
  • General Contractors: James McHugh Construction Company and Adolfson and Peterson Construction
  • Plumbing Contractor: Metropolitan Mechanical Contractors

Products used

  • 53,000 ft. of ½" to 2" Uponor AquaPEX Pipe
  • Uponor Engineered Polymer (EP) Multiport Tees

Veteran contractor saves significant time installing 53,000 ft. of riser, main and in-unit piping for 36-story high rise

Plumbing Foreman, Chico Flores of Metropolitan Mechanical Contractors (MMC), has been installing plumbing systems for more than 20 years and, while he was initially skeptical of the PEX system, he is a firm believer in the product now.

“At first I didn’t like it,” he says. “I thought it was taking the skill out of the trades. But now I love it because of all the time it saves on installation and testing.”

Flores estimates he saves about half the time installing and testing a PEX system compared to a copper or CPVC system. And when you’re installing 53,000 feet of pipe on a project of this size, that’s a lot of time savings.

“Because you can’t dry fit the ProPEX® expansion fittings, there’s no concern about blow offs,” he says. “That makes the system testing go really quick.”

Flores also likes the installation efficiencies provided by the Uponor Engineered Polymer (EP) Multiport Tees. “The multiports are great,” he says. “You just put in your tee and send the whips wherever you need them.”

The Loring Park Tower project is using 1½" to 2" Uponor AquaPEX® pipe for the risers and mains with ½" to 1" Uponor AquaPEX for the in-suite lines.

A housing company in Turku saved time and money using Uponor's Cefo pipe overhaul

The Petreliuksenrinne housing company controls a group of residential buildings that were constructed in 1969. The company manages 124 flats, which were subject to an overhaul of their water supply and sewerage systems. The floor drains, bathrooms, electricity distribution and antenna systems were also overhauled.

A line renovation was carried out in a block of flats in Turku using Uponor's R2I elements

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.
