Northwest Ohio Piping Industry members are busy working on a $60 million school project in Defiance.

In 2014, Defiance voters passed of a 3.78-mill, $11.7 million bond issue to construct a new combined Defiance Senior and Junior High School.

After months of planning, site preparation began in early 2016, and by mid-April, Piping Industry members were working to install the underground piping.

Throughout the summer, the building has taken shape and now crews are working to enclose the structure before winter sets in.

According to several representatives from General Contractor Rudolph Libbe, overall work remains on schedule.

Bayes Inc. is the plumbing contractor and LR Babcock is doing the mechanical work.

Ten highly-trained and highly-skilled members of the Piping Industry are busy installing piping throughout the 248,000-square-foot structure.

Some of the piping tradesmen and tradeswomen are working safely and quickly to install hangers and piping for sewer, heating and cooling lines and acid drains, while others are running waterlines throughout the first floor of the structure.

When that work is complete, Piping Industry journeymen will begin to install plumbing fixtures and the heating and cooling systems.

The new building is scheduled to be finished by December 2017 and according to the Defiance City School District website, the earliest students may start classes in the building is right after they return from Christmas break.
