With polypropylene-random pipe (PP-R) systems continuing to evolve, Aquatherm is keeping pace by preparing to move into a new headquarters and fabrication facility in Lindon, Utah, in February 2017.
The new 82,000-sq.-ft.-facility is about two miles from the old Aquatherm headquarters and will provide plenty of space for operations. It will include office space for corporate staff, engineering and quality-assurance laboratories, extensive warehouse space and a state-of-the-art fabrication facility.
“The new Aquatherm North America building represents a significant step forward for our entire organization and one of the most exciting things is the way in which it will allow us to better support our Design and Fabrication Services Department,” Aquatherm North America CEO Jordan Hardy said. “Design and fabrication services are a significant benefit for all our partners and customers in the U.S. and Canada. We will be able to greatly expand these services at our new location. There is a lot of positive energy around our new building as we look to better support our partners and customers in 2017 and beyond.”
The new Aquatherm headquarters has been constructed to high environmental standards including:
Energy-efficient LEDs and lighting controls being installed throughout the building;
The installation of a high-efficiency boiler and chiller;
Low-flow control faucets and flush valves on toilets and urinals;
Rainwater will be collected and recycled directly back to the earth to recharge the groundwater; and
A high-efficiency radiant heating and cooling system will provide a comfortable work environment while using the lowest amount of energy.
Aquatherm PP-R piping systems will be used, including the company’s Blue Pipe in 1/2-in. to 3-in. for heating and chilled water; Green Pipe in 1/2-in. to 4-in. for potable water; Red Pipe in 1/2-in. to 3-in. sizes for fire-sprinkler systems; Lilac Pipe in 4-in. to 6-in. sizes for roof drainage; and Black System radiant panels are being used to heat and cool the office and training areas.
