RADISSON HOTEL GRAND RAPIDS RIVERFRONT SELECTS CURAFLO® FOR
WATER INFRASTRUCTURE RESTORATION PROJECT
Proprietary System Proves Faster and Less Costly Than Traditional Repiping
BEACHWOOD, OHIO – CuraFlo®, a leading provider of pipe restoration services for multi-tenant buildings and other commercial and institutional structures, has begun work at the Radisson Hotel Grand Rapids Riverfront in Grand Rapids, Michigan to restore the hotel’s plumbing system by installing its proprietary CuraFlo Engineered Flow Lining System®.
The seven-story, 162-room hotel has a plumbing system comprised of galvanized piping. Guests have frequently complained of low water flow and pressure in its hot supply lines due to tuberculation, a mineral scale build-up within the interior of the pipe. CuraFlo’s proprietary process will eliminate the scale and increase both water flow and water pressure throughout the hotel, as well as prevent future leaks and corrosion.
CuraFlo was selected based on the company’s established track record with a variety of multi-family, commercial and institutional installations throughout the United States, as well as the quality of its epoxy lining process and ease of installation. CuraFlo personnel will work closely with hotel management throughout the process to ensure that the hotel remains open for business, with minimal disruption and loss of revenue. In fact, only specific hotel sections will be closed at any given time, and work has been limited to a Sunday through Thursday schedule. The project is expected to be completed at the end of June.
“The Radisson management team considered several options, but in the end, they appreciated the fact that CuraFlo’s epoxy lining is less invasive than traditional repiping methods,” said Skip Wolfe, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, CuraFlo.
In addition to a full array of infrastructure rehabilitation services, CuraFlo’s epoxy pipe lining solutions are widely renowned for alleviating problems with deteriorating pipes and plumbing systems. In many instances, this proves a highly effective alternative to pipe replacement. In fact, pipes restored with CuraFlo’s epoxy lining can gain an additional service life of 50 years or more.
