CASE STUDIES

Mosaic Stadium, Regina: Home to the Roughriders and IPEX

From the beginning the owner was interested in the use of thermoplastic piping systems for drain, waste, and ventilation (DWV), potable water and chilled water lines, but research needed to be done. After looking at price and installation-time comparisons with copper and steel pipe, the most cost-effective choice with the quickest install time was thermoplastic pipe.
