Reference Case: Philippines' Okada Manila integrated Resort

In February 2017, the casino resort and hotel complex Okada Manila, officially opened its doors. Japanese business man Kazuo Okada, who earned a big part of his fortune with the Japanese Pachinko machines, obtained a license back in 2008 to run a casino in the Manila Entertainment City. This prestigious gambling facility should compete with casinos in Macau and should turn Manila into a regional and international gambling destination.

Set in 45 hectares of picturesque  oceanfront, the Okada Manila is one of the most iconic resorts of Tiger Resort Leisure & Entertainment, Inc. (TRLEI). The hotel, consisting of 2 wings, each having 15 floors, is connected by two sky bridges and features 993 hotel rooms, more than 3,000 electronic gambling machines and 500 table games. In addition, the Okada Manila features a dancing fountain comparable to the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas, Asia’s first nightclub and indoor beach club enclosed in a dome, a high-end retail area, a world-class 3,000-square-meter spa facility and several food and beverage outlets. A total of 8,000 staff has been hired to operate the resort.

A collaboration with GF

The construction of the Okada resort, a $ 2.4 billion project, required a total of 22,000 workers and took no less than 6 years. The main contractor was TransAsia Construction Development Corporation, where part of the plumbing work of the project was outsourced to  Alpha Plumbing Works Inc. Not only did our colleagues of GF Philippines maintain good relations with Alpha Plumbing, they also  teamed up with engineering company Meinhardt Philippines, responsible for the design of the various piping networks of the project. Of course a big and prestigious project  like this needs outstanding quality in constructing and installation. This was where the MULTI/JOINT® transition fittings of Georg Fischer Waga N.V. came in!
