REHAU Recognized With Pipe Industry Award for Denver Zoo Project

For the second year in a row, REHAU has been acknowledged by the Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI) with a Project of the Year award. The current year's award recognizes the company's role in the Denver Zoo’s new, sustainably designed Toyota Elephant Passage exhibit.

This 10-acre Asian-themed complex utilizes REHAU energy transfer piping and radiant heating and snow and ice melting systems. In all, the project contains 3,000 ft (915 m) of INSULPEX pipe and 28,000 ft (8,534 m) of RAUPEX® pipe.

Supporting the zoo’s core ideals to be environmentally-conscious in all operations, these PEX piping systems allow for reduced energy consumption, lower upfront installation and ongoing management costs, and extended life-cycle to last as long as the buildings, with minimal maintenance.

Plastics Pipe Institute Inc. (PPI) is a trade association composed of approximately 300 members representing all segments of the plastics piping industry. The organization strives to elevate awareness by broadcasting the many features and benefits of polyethylene pipe.

Last year, PPI selected REHAU for the same Project of the Year award in the Building & Construction category for the Solaris project, a newly constructed town center in Vail, Colorado.
