Project Name: Detroit Redwings Stadium
Location: Detroit, MI
Wheatland Products Used on Project: EMT
For an extensive project in an automotive manufacturing plant, which involved installing conduit to connect power, lighting and process equipment, Robertson Bright Inc. ordered Wheatland Tube's 10-foot and 20-foot FasTrak™ Plus EMT.
With 30 runs total, most of which were 500 feet in length, Gary Bolton, the project's journeyman, said Wheatland's 20-foot conduit saved 15 to 20 minutes in labor costs per 100 feet. A true attest to its time saving nature, project foreman, Kevin VanAlstyne, commented that once the crew was on site and began using the product, they exclusively requested 20-foot FasTrak™ Plus conduit for the duration of the installation.
Another demonstration of its ability to save time and money, zero scraps were left over at job completion. Additionally, half the couplings were needed to finish the job, resulting in reduced material costs.
With similar projects on the horizon, Kevin VanAlstyne said he would definitely use 20' FasTrak™ Plus EMT again. Similarly, Gary Bolton mentioned that he will look at this product for future projects.
