Construction on the Toledo area’s second Costco store is rapidly nearing completion thanks to members of the Northwest Ohio Piping Industry and Mondo Mechnical Inc.
The 154,300-square-foot store, located at the southeast corner of State Rt. 25 and Eckel Junction Road in Perrysburg, is set to open this June.
Foreman Mike McNutt and several other members of the Piping Industry, including journeyman Al Hoskins and fourth-year apprentice Derrick Vanhove, have done all of the underground piping, roof drains, and plumbing on the project. Complete Refrigeration LLC. is performing the refrigeration for the entire building.
Some early obstacles had to be dealt with in the beginning stages of the project, including rerouting pipelines that lay under the site of construction with pipeline operator Columbia Gas Transmissions, acquiring necessary permits in the face of community opposition, and working with local governments to obtain necessary zoning. The project has moved forward smoothly since these obstacles were overcome.
“It should be a smooth next couple of months until the opening,” said Brody Walters, the city of Perrysburg’s administrator of planning and zoning.
This project is being highlighted as another example of the great work that members of the Piping Industry are constantly doing throughout Northwest Ohio.
