Flow-Liner installed at museum

A certified Flow-Liner installer has used the company’s cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) to rehabilitate garage drain pipes, avoiding demolition at state-of-the-art museum Detroit Institute of Arts.

The museum hosts a 66,000 piece collection that is considered to be in the top six in the US.

The building covers approximately 61,130 m2 and includes more than 100 galleries, a 1,150 seat auditorium, a 380 seat lecture hall, an art reference library and a conservation services laboratory.

After issues were identified in more than 50-year-old cast iron pipes in the parking garage, the museum required a solution that avoided property destruction and interference with normal operations.

The installer successfully relined the ageing pipes using the CIPP inversion process, with minimal disruption to the museum.
