CLARK COUNTY REGIONAL JUSTICE CENTER – SANITARY ODOR MITIGATIONS

LAS VEGAS, NV
CLARK COUNTY RPM (Department of Real Property Management)
Project responsibilities included forensic investigations of the sanitary vent and drain systems within the facility to identify areas of significant corrosion, damage, and other issues that were contributing to dangerous gas odors within the courtrooms, detention areas, and public areas of this existing high-rise facility. Solutions included replacements of portions of existing vent pipe stacks from cast-iron to plastic pipe and the addition of building traps to prevent municipal sanitary gas from entering into the building from the service locations. This project was a significant code-related challenge as both plastic piping and sanitary building traps were not permitted within local City of Las Vegas code amendments. Therefore, several negotiations and Alternate Methods & Material submittal requests were required. Project was delivered on time and well below projected budget costs.
