Thanks to members of the Piping Industry, downtown Toledo has a new major employer, as members helped construct the new ProMedica downtown headquarters along the city’s riverfront.

The $60 million project to consolidate ProMedica’s office buildings began in January 2016. ProMedica held a grand opening celebration on Aug. 31.

At its peak, roughly 20 of the Piping Industry’s highly skilled and highly trained members successfully completed the work on time to renovate The Steam Plant, Promenade Park and the Key Bank building, now called The Junction.

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

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.

Perrysburg’s newest school is beginning to take shape and Northwest Ohio Piping Industry members are using innovative techniques to keep the plumbing and pipefitting work ahead of schedule.

Hull Prairie Intermediate School, located at the corner of Roachton and Hull Prairie roads, is the future home to fifth and sixth graders in the Perrysburg Exempted Village School District.

Three Piping Industry members, currently working for Dunbar Mechanical Inc., are busy installing the building’s plumbing and piping systems.

Their co-workers in the Dunbar fabrication shop pre-fabricated a group of restroom sanitary piping and water lines (shown in the picture below). Pre-fabrication work was created roughly a month in advance and is expected to save two or three days’ worth of work per each setup.

After being closed for nearly two and a half years, the newly renovated Toledo Zoo Aquarium reopened to the public today, thanks in large part to the members of the Northwest Ohio Piping Industry.

The $25.5 million renovation helped take the aquarium from a 1930s era design into an artistic and sensually pleasing display of marine life. Hundreds braved the cold Toledo weather as they gathered for the official ribbon cutting ceremony for the aquarium, which has been closed since October 2012.

The newly renovated Aquarium is home to more than 3,000 aquatic animals living in about 178,000 gallons of water, which, according to the zoo’s website, is nearly four times the volume as the previous Aquarium.

When temperatures drop below freezing, it is very important to protect your home from the elements.

To prevent pipes from bursting, follow these simple steps to winterize your pipes:

Step 1 – Disconnect all garden hoses.

  • When water freezes inside (or bursts) a hose, it can cause serious damage not only to the hose itself, but also to the interior pipes.
