Viega ProPress and Viega PureFlow simplify complicated construction
Casino Arizona, a 15-story resort at Indian Bend in Scottsdale, AZ, features nearly 500 rooms, a huge 13,000 square foot luxury spa, and the locations own Talking Stick Golf Club. The showpiece of the new resort is the casino, with its 240,000-square-foot gaming floor complete with eight restaurants, 10 lounges and a 750-seat entertainment showroom.
While searching for a solution to install in the Casino Arizona project, other press systems on the market were making news. Contractors were reporting failures in press technology and Kinetics, the full-service mechanical contractor company hired for the project, was concerned that press technology might not be the best choice for their project. After hearing several concerns, Casey Reed, Casino Arizona Project Director for Kinetics, started doing his own research and reached his own conclusions about Viega ProPress systems.
"Viega ProPress is the only press system that proved consistent and reliable," Reed said. "And we needed that reassurance."
Viega products simplified what could have been a very complicated construction process. Kinetics chose to install Viega ProPress in copper and stainless as well as Viega PureFlow PEX tubing in Casino Arizona’s Talking Stick Resort because the products save time and labor.
Casino Arizona and the Talking Stick Resort encompasses one million square feet of combined space. Kinetics installed Viega ProPress Copper fittings in sizes 1/2" to 4", Viega ProPress Stainless fittings and pipe in sizes 1/2" to 4" and ViegaPEX tubing in sizes 1/2" and 3/4".
An estimated 700 feet of Viega ProPress Stainless were installed in a day and a half. Reed also utilized the Viega ProPress system and the flexibility of ViegaPEX tubing to make copper-to-PEX connections quickly.
ViegaPEX tubing supplies the water service inside the hotel rooms, where copper lines run down the hallways. Kinetics made copper-to-PEX connections with customizable Viega ProPress manifolds. The flexibility of ViegaPEX tubing and design options of Viega ProPress manifolds allowed Kinetics to keep up with frequently changing design plans.
