Plumbing Riser Replacement
G3 Construction Group specializes in managing capital improvement projects such as plumbing riser replacements. Our project management team ensures that each project is professionally managed from pre-construction assessment to completion.

If a building is experiencing widespread water supply issues, it may be time to replace the plumbing installation. If the following issues are present in your building, a plumbing riser upgrade may be the solution:

  • Insufficient water pressure
  • Colored water
  • Excessively hot showerhead water
  • Water leaks

In short, a piping upgrade is necessary if the existing installation is no longer able to deliver enough water, or if quality has become unacceptable due to rust contamination. Partial upgrades are not recommended because they result in contact between new and old piping, which accelerates corrosion due to the materials difference; old piping normally uses galvanized steel, while new installations use copper, brass or stainless steel.

Edgewater Condominium Association
Chicago, Il
Emergency Riser Replacement

G3 was engaged by this Edgewater Condo Association to manage a critical riser replacement project. Prior to the start of this project, leaks were found while replacing adjacent insulation. The extremely poor condition of the piping lead to this emergency riser replacement. G3's work included:
  • Obtain all permits, licenses, and approvals
  • Coordinate activities/schedule of all subcontractors, including daily COVID-19 screening, including temperature checks, face coverings, sanitizing stations, etc.
  • On-site superintendent to ensure project efficiency
  • Weekly progress meetings and daily construction reports
  • Coordination with unit occupants to minimize conflicts and facilitate occupant usage
  • Lobby monitor updating to keep residents informed of the project's progress
  • Community coordinator to field calls, emails, etc. from unit owners while scheduling unit work
  • Unit protection and final daily cleaning
After the piping replacement, the drywall was repaired and repainted in units, corridors, and stairwells.
Our Project Management team's diligent and efficient approach to this project enabled the entire replacement to be completed within one week.
