FlowGuard CPVC Pipe and Fittings saves Hotel Time and Money
Nigeria is by far the largest economy and the most populated country in Africa. With its increasing urbanization, growing middle class income, positive construction and economic indicators, this country represents an attractive opportunity for business expansion. The Marriott International Inc has realized the ‘African potential’ and continues its expansion by investing in luxurious projects, such as the Marriott Ikeja Hotel.
Located in the affluent Government Reservation Area (GRA) in Lagos, the Marriott Ikeja hotel aims to increase the international hotels offering the growing demand for customers requiring proximity to the Murtala Muhammed International airport. The project has been conceived as a 5 star destination: a 7-storey hotel with 250 rooms and facilities including a lobby with retail outlets, a ballroom for 800 – 1000 people, food and beverage outlets, a rooftop club/bar, a business center with meeting, seminar and boardrooms and a spa, gym and fitness club complete with an outdoor swimming pool and deck area.
The Marriott International Inc accords special importance to the building materials chosen for their hotels as they are the main ambassadors of the brand. The challenge is to meet the high brand standards, remaining within the project’s constraints in terms of budget and time.
The FlowGuard Advantages
For decades, the Marriott group has turned to CPVC across the world for the plumbing systems in their hotels. FlowGuard pipe and fittings offer benefits above all other brands. Its ability to withstand high pressure, hot water, chlorine and biofilm formation had a decisive role in its adoption.
