Soil and waste efficiency and performance over 65 storeys

Ease-of-handling for the Philippines Salcedo Place development

Shang Salcedo Place is a 65-storey high-rise condominium located within the prestigious Salcedo Village development in The Philippines’ Makati City. It houses 700 units, and promotes the very highest standards of luxury and building quality throughout.

With a high-profile construction like the Shang Salcedo Place tower, every aspect of the job needs to be managed for maximum efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Specialist plumbing contractors, Enerthrust, made Wavin PE soil and waste products their first choice for the job.  Ease-of-handling was an important factor in choosing high-density polyethylene, but cost was an influence too – the base product costs compared very favourably with more traditional cast-iron products.

Wavin’s PE soil and waste products were easy to install, are exceptionally durable and helped us significantly reduce project costs.

Working to a tight schedule, in which multiple contractors needed to perform together, logistics were also a key to successful completion.  Local Wavin agent, Thermovar, made sure that throughout the project, the right products were always on site in the right sequence, in the right quantity and at the right time.

Enerthrust project manager, Peter Canlas, had no hesitation in recommending Wavin HDPE soil and waste products, “They were easy to install, are exceptionally durable and helped us significantly reduce project costs.” Combining the HDPE products for vertical use with lower-specification PVC products for horizontal use met the performance specifications and brought the best result in terms of cost.
