12 Tribes Omak Casino Hotel
2 Tribes Omak Casino Hotel started experiencing hot water issues shortly after being built in 2015. When MacDonald-Miller took over the maintenance contract in early 2019, we were aware of the hotel’s hot water inconsistency. Through discussions, we determined that the best way to proceed was to have our plumbing engineer and field lead perform an in-depth onsite survey of existing conditions. From that survey, we produced a list of deficiencies, some from the original installation and some from “patch repairs” over the years, that would need to be addressed for the hotel to get consistent hot water. After presenting our findings to the Tribe, they decided to have MacDonald-Miller perform most of those items in one project – the Domestic Hot Water Re-Pipe.
Despite equipment delays that required us to reschedule this shutdown multiple times, our INW Plumbing team was incredibly flexible and positive, keeping their primary focus on the customer. The initial schedule was tight and didn’t allow for a lot of prep time, but our team recognized the opportunity this gave them to do prefab, pre-layout, and establish installation points. The entire project was completed on time and under budget!
