While patients, doctors, and staff at Wood Haven Health Care Senior Living & Rehabilitation may not see the work being done, members of the Northwest Ohio Piping Industry are busy updating the facility’s piping and HVAC infrastructure.
For several months, Bayes Inc., the general contractor, has been on the job replacing all the sanitary sewer lines, HVAC units, and the HVAC lines throughout the complex. Overall, this project is expected to take eight months to complete at a cost of $1.2 million.
Owned and operated under the authority of the Board of Wood County Commissioners, the structure was constructed in 1971 and its piping infrastructure needed to be replaced.
The hardworking tradesmen and tradeswomen of the Piping Industry have been spending their days working in confined spaces – mostly in the crawl spaces under the building in order to perform the work without majorly disrupting the day-to-day operations at Wood Haven.
Their skill and dedication to perform this difficult project is a common attribute found in Piping Industry members. Through their commitment to providing quality work, they ensure the job is done right the first time, while also doing everything within their power to get the work done on time and on or under budget.
This job is also a great example of how their members work safely, despite difficult conditions. While the work they are performing may be considered routine, it must be done correctly in order to ensure the systems are working right and will last for a long time.
