Failing Hydronic Riser Piping

SageWater performed a One Call Repipe for this apartment complex that had extensive age-related corrosion in the piping of its 68 closed-loop HVAC risers. Through a collaborative effort with building management, we developed a complete resident communications program (including a project-specific website), and performed all construction, including plumbing, insulation, drywall and paint as well as managed the asbestos abatement. This work included complete replacement of more than 1,200 FCUs in all 441 units. Jack Gallagher, Senior Vice President, Property Management for Pollinger Shannon & Luchs said, “Through a collaborative effort with building management, SageWater developed a complete resident communications program (including a property-specific website) to help ensure the best possible outcome for this complex renovation project. They then completed all the renovation work, including plumbing, insulation, firestopping, drywall and paint as well as managing the asbestos abatement. This included replacement of the more than 1,200 FCUs in all 441 units. In all, SageWater did an excellent job, met all our requirements and delivered an outstanding finished product, both on time and within budget.”
