JW Marriott Indianapolis redefines city’s skyline

The JW Marriott Indianapolis redefined the city’s skyline. With more than 1,000 rooms, the 34-story JW Marriott is both the largest and tallest hotel in Indianapolis. One of the most prestigious hotels in the city, the JW Marriott has hosted celebrities and NFL teams alike. 

For the complicated construction of this new hotel, JW Marriott chose to install Viega ProPress systems for domestic water and hot water heating applications on all copper piping systems sizes 2" and down.

Circle Design engineering group worked on the design portion of the building. Alexander Veksler, currently with AVEKS Engineering, Inc. in Indianapolis, engineered the JW Marriott project.

“I was very pleased,” Veksler said. “Overall, the system gives the opportunity to do a lot of things in a faster, more reliable way. You save money and labor. You save on welding. In some places where welding is not desirable, pressing really has the presence. That’s what we like about it.”

Veksler was originally introduced to Viega products through a local sales representative seven years ago. He indicated that the system held together well, even during testing that incorporated several tests at high pressures. 

 


Viega ProPress systems, the original copper press fitting, available in sizes ½" to 4"

 

The complexity of the plumbing design and the timeframe for the project both presented challenges to the contractor, North Mechanical Contracting but Viega ProPress offered the benefits needed to overcome those challenges. 

With nearly 400 different fitting configurations ranging from ½" to 4", Viega ProPress copper fittings can be designed into nearly any project. As the first manufacturer to offer press fitting systems, Viega has a tried and tested history of excellence around the world. Viega ProPress has been revolutionizing the way America joins pipe since 1999. And with more approved applications than any other press fitting system in the industry, whether heating, potable water, natural gas, propane, fire protection or solar, Viega ProPress is the smartest choice for any commercial, institutional or industrial project. 

Only Viega offers the patented Viega Smart Connect feature. The Viega Smart Connect feature is the only guaranteed method in the industry to identify unpressed connections, which means you can trust that an installation is secure. The versatile alternative to conventional pipe joining methods, reliable Viega ProPress is backed by an industry-leading warranty.  

Veksler knows of other future projects where Viega ProPress has been included in the specs.

With the reliability of flameless Viega ProPress, projects stay on schedule. Secure, consistent connections keep installations moving and provide genuine peace of mind. 

“It’s a reliable product,” Veksler said. “We like the development of the product through the years. We like that Viega is coming out with new products. We are looking forward to using it in the future.”
