Construction workers are making significant progress on the $33 million Northwood School project.
The combined school, which will be home to all students in the district – kindergarten through 12th grade – is on schedule as crews work to finish the roof, closing off the 136,000 square foot structure from the elements.
During the summer, Northwest Ohio Piping Industry members were busy installing all underground sewer and water lines.
Long finished with that portion of the project, plumbers and pipefitters working for signatory contractor Mondo Mechanical, Inc. are plying their trades on internal piping, sewer, acid drains and heating and cooling lines.
This internal work is extremely important as mistakes connecting the acid drains, sewers pipes or water lines could lead to major problems that could cost thousands of dollars down the road to fix.
By trusting the highly-trained and highly-skilled workforce of the Piping Industry to do this work, officials from the Northwood School District can be assured the job will be completed correctly the first time.
Piping Industry members working for Industrial Power Systems, Inc., will install the mechanical heating and cooling systems later on in the construction process.
The entire project is scheduled to be wrapped up in fall 2017.
