    Job:
    This new 9-story, 160-bed Hospital Patient Tower at Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup, Wash. — part of MultiCare Health Services — includes Emergency Rooms, a Central Utility Plant (CUP) and a 500+ stall Parking Garage. This is one of the first green hospitals in Washington, constructed with the environment — and creating a healthy community — in mind. NIBCO products were used for the $400-million, 350,000-square-foot facility's potable water and HVAC applications.

    The Edge:
    Product availability, quality, installation and the NIBCO factory rep's responsiveness and service really proved to be the edge in NIBCO being awarded this project.

    Prior to construction, the mechanical contractor, University Mechanical, invited the local NIBCO sales engineer to discuss the merits of the NIBCO Press System® with the project's engineer (CDi Engineers) and owner (Multicare Health Services).

    "University Mechanical was already familiar with the NIBCO valve offering, our high quality and service," Chris Bleile, regional sales manager said. "At this meeting, we were able to convince all parties of the benefits that can be achieved through the use of this product — long-lasting quality, quick and consistent installation to keep the project on time and on budget, knowledgeable local support, and service."

    NIBCO also spent time discussing valve selection with the contractor, which led to the LD-2000 series valves being chosen because of their reasonable pricing, availability and are backed by the industry's only 5-year, 125% limited warranty.

    As construction began, NIBCO coordinated product training on the Press System with the various installation crews at the jobsite, as well as at University's fabrication facility.

    Product availability is often an issue on construction projects, but University was faced with a particularly challenging deadline when connecting the 30" diameter HVAC piping supply and return pipes between the CUP and Patient Tower. This part of the job had to be completed within a 24-hour time frame while the street in front of the hospital was opened up. "University called me to personally follow the order through the factory and track the delivery of these critical components to ensure the deadline was met," said Bleile. "Without this personal attention and contact with the factory, it is possible costly project delays would have occurred."
