Larger campus facility will expand training opportunities for plumbers and pipefitters.
HBD Construction has been chosen to build a new $12 million training facility campus for the Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 562. The current facility, located at the north St. Louis County headquarters, will be expanded to include two new buildings comprised of 97,000-sf of training and classroom space.
“The members of Local 562 are committed to the investment of this project, to ensure that our region will be served by a very highly skilled and well-trained, professional workforce for generations to come. This newly designed campus will significantly increase our capacity to serve 562 members and United Association members throughout the U.S. and Canada,” said John O’Mara, Business Manager for Local 562. “This year with Local 562 celebrating its centennial and HBD celebrating its 90th, there is a lot of tradition and history in this relationship. For a number of reasons, the board felt this was the right company for the job.”
HBD’s promise of service includes senior leader involvement throughout every project. HBD President Mike Perry will serve as Project Executive; Steve Meeks, Vice President, will serve as Project Director and Grant Smith will serve as Project Manager. The building team also includes M+H Architects, Jarrell Contracting and Guarantee Electric who will serve as the architect, design/build mechanical and design/build electrical contractor on this project. +
