Residents in more than 200 rooms at Cedarbrook of Rochester, a senior housing facility in Michigan, will have their water provided thanks to Viega PureFlow and ProPress products.
Cedarbrook Senior Living offers independent living, assisted living and memory-care options. The new facility should be done in late summer to be open and operational in the last quarter of 2019.
Conti Corporation of Sterling Heights, Michigan, installed the PureFlow Press and ProPress products for water, as well as MegaPress fittings for the gas system. Domestic water in the kitchen is provided via 4″ ProPress fittings, while the PureFlow Press fittings in sizes 2″ and smaller come off the main to provide water for individual units. MegaPressG fittings brought the gas system together, in sizes 2″ and smaller.
“I’m a big fan of Viega so I try to use it on every single job,” said David Murray, Director of Piping and Plumbing for Conti Corporation. “This was our first multi-unit build. Once I started digging into the job, I knew I could save money by saving labor [with Viega].”
Murray said each foreman in his crew has a Viega press tool, and the company is structured to press whenever possible. Crimping by hand, like others in town do, makes no sense, he said.
“The owner of this facility is getting a superior product, and it benefits us all,” Murray said.
