PP-R PIPE, PROTOTYPE FUSION MACHINE

LEAVE NOTHING TO CHANCE AT

SPECTACULAR NEW HOTEL AND CASINO

 

PROJECT:

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

Heated and chilled water HVAC system

PRODUCTS:

aquatherm blue pipe
aquatherm green pipe

LOCATION/DATE:

Hollywood, FL

2017 – 2019

THE CHALLENGE

The installation of the originally planned in steel piping system for the heating and cooling water system would have delayed the construction process.

THE SOLUTION

Switching to Aquatherm polypropylene-random (PP-R) pipe allowed the installation crews to move, mobilize, and fabricate the pipe quickly and efficiently, and moved the project ahead of schedule

AQUATHERM ADVANTAGES

  • The speed with which aquatherm polypropylene-random (PP-R) pipe can be heat fused compared to welding steel was crucial on this project
  • The ability to fabricate piping assemblies and deliver them to the site allowed the contractor to maximize the amount of fusion work completed each day
  • The durability and longevity of PP-R pipe were key in a facility that is operational 24/7/365
SEMINOLE HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO
On a project as highly anticipated as the expansion of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL, the ability to stay on schedule is paramount. Guests are awaiting twice the amount of casino space, a Bora Bora-inspired pool paradise, an iconic hotel tower in the shape of a giant guitar, a new Hard Rock Live arena, and much more. It will be the ultimate venue for accommodations and entertainment when Super Bowl LIV comes to Miami in February 2020, so it must be good to go well before then.

With so much on the line and no time to waste, Suffolk-Yates, the general contractor, decided to regroup after an HVAC contractor struggled and fell behind on the carbon steel piping installation for the casino’s heated- and chilled-water systems. Suffolk-Yates brought in Kirlin, a construction company that had bid on the project, to see if they could get it back on track.

Kirlin Senior Vice President Troy Norris said the company knew the solution would have to be as innovative as the Seminole Tribe’s $1.5 billion project itself, and they were ready to take on the challenge.

AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH
Thanks to the low weight of the polypropylene material, which is up to 70 percent lighter than comparable metal pipes, assembly teams can easily move and process even large pipes.
OVERCOMING THE CHALLENGE OF TIGHT SPACES
In total, around eleven kilometers of aquatherm blue pipe in various sizes was delivered for the Hard Rock project.

“I’ve been in construction for 30 years and I’ve never seen anything like that, and aquatherm was a big part of it. It exceeded all expectations.”
