The Challenge

To support the needs of a large manufacturing facility whose owners are making a multi-billion, critical investment in the Valley of the Sun, the city of Phoenix commissioned essential utility structure improvements entitled the Northwest Water and Wastewater Master Plan Package 3.

The manufacturing process at this facility, within the fastest growing county in the U.S. – Maricopa, will create thousands of direct and indirect jobs – while also requiring, what is likely, an unprecedented amount of water. To support the wastewater needs of this project, Rinker Materials was selected by Sundt to complete a 54” and 48” gravity sewer main.

To meet the important objectives of this development on time, the water and wastewater infrastructure construction would be placed on a fast-track for completion.

The Solution

While PVC lined RCP is not a frequently requested product, Rinker’s advanced production capabilities and wide-ranging product line allowed the company to produce the product in the quantity needed to meet Sundt’s accelerated project schedule.

The Rinker Advantage

Rinker Materials broad product line allowed it to be a single source of material. Our decades of industry experience ensured we had the necessary resources and partners at our disposal to subject the joints to the required hydrostatic testing. Finally, our quality focus resulted in the pipe passing the spark testing and post installation inspection.
