Relining rescues historic landmark

Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) has been used to rehabilitate a damaged network inside a historic building in Dallas, US.

As one of the first high-rise condo buildings constructed in Dallas, the 29-story Preston Tower is a historical landmark marking a significant architectural achievement in 1966.

During a recent renovation project to revive the old building, CCTV inspection revealed the cast iron pipes were showing signs of clogging and degradation.

In order to avoid the costs of traditional pipe repair and the damage it would cause to the restoration, Advanced Pipe Repair was contracted to rehabilitate the pipes using a CIPP epoxy liner.

The use of this method enabled repairs to be carried out on a shorter timeline without damaging any of the historic elements of the building.
