The advent of better construction compliance laws has paved the way for improved structures, but quality construction was not always available. Many of South Florida’s condominium residences now exist with failing sanitary piping after years of deterioration. Sterling Village Condominiums has recently utilized Crain Atlantis’ expertise in pipelining. The challenge was to repair or replace the condominium’s old sanitary piping system within budgetary and time constraints. In most cases, changing piping entails 3 to 6 months’ worth of work at the cost of both the residents and the facility. It typically means breaking walls, replacing the piping, and putting everything back the way it was, disrupting living conditions for a tremendous amount of time along the way. However, Crain Atlantis always aims to do better. Crain Atlantis’ solution to Sterling Village’s piping issue is an internal pipe liner that could be put into old pipes through access at the roof level or from access at the ground level. The internal liner itself becomes the equivalent of a PVC pipe once it is installed. The entire process takes only a couple of days’ worth of work, requiring no damage to walls or heavy disruption of residents. When Crain Atlantis lined Sterling Village’s pipes, they guaranteed efficient sanitary piping for the next 80 to 100 years. This is exactly how Crain Atlantis’ unique engineering methods can make an incredible difference in communities.
