Project Type: Commercial & Industrial — Apartments – Pipe Restoration — Epoxy Coated
Location: San Jose, CA
Description: Valley Palms apartments were slated for an overall upgrade, including re-piping the buildings’ plumbing systems. To avoid costly reconstruction and tenant disruption, the property owner selected the ACE Duraflo® system to restore the damaged systems. The project was completed ahead of schedule with no loss of income from tenant displacement.
Valley Palms is a 356 townhouse apartment complex located in the famous Silicon Valley area of California. With a major overall upgrade slated for this income producing property, the owner was faced with a real dilemma. Part of the overall upgrade program included provisions to re- pipe the buildings’ plumbing systems. To re- pipe the buildings would mean massive tenant disruption, loss of income and extraordinary reconstruction costs. The owner, who previously had utilized the ACE
Duraflo® system to restore the piping system in a Los Angeles area complex, knew he had the answer to the re-piping challenges he was facing in San Jose. On the San Jose project, a consortium headed by the Bank of America had to review and approve all methods of reconstruction. Upon presentation they approved the ACE Duraflo® system — finding it economical, less disruptive than a re-pipe and a long-term solution.
Due to the experience of the local franchise, assistance from TDT Plumbing’s technicians and plumbers, and the ease and effectiveness of the ACE Duraflo® system, the project was completed ahead of schedule with no loss of income from tenant displacement. Water service was fully restored providing for full flow and clean water for the occupants.
