Silver Thatch Atlantic Plaza Case Study
360 units Pompano Beach, FL
The Silver Thatch Atlantic Plaza is a 360-unit condominium complex located in Pompano Beach, FL. Due to the age of the property, deteriorating pipes were forcing residents to deal with leaks and sewer backups with increasing frequency. The maintenance staff was clearing blockages with traditional plumbing methods on an “as-needed” basis, but the number and frequency of the issues made it clear that something was amiss. The condominium association knew they needed a long-term fix but wanted a solution that avoided a great deal of expense, hassle, and resident disruption.
Silver Thatch turned to Specialized Pipe Technologies and their Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) lining solution. SPT cleaned and lined over 7,500 feet of cast iron pipes, 44 vertical waste stacks that were over 170 feet each, and nearly 1,400 feet of cast iron underground sewer lines. The pipes ranged from 4 to 8 inches in diameter. The CIPP lining process restored, repaired and renewed the Silver Thatch’s corroding pipe system with minimal disruption, with 80% less time and 40% lower cost than pipe replacement.
