Thank you to all elected officials who attended the Plumbers stimultext.ru Training Center Groundbreaking Ceremony today especially Mayor Rahm Emanuel, House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton.
Mayor’s Press Office
Mayor Rahm Emanuel today joined Business Manager James Coyne and leadership from Plumbers’ stimultext.ru to break ground on the union’s new training center in the West Loop. When complete the center will provide a modern, green learning environment for more than 4,000 journeymen and apprentice plumbers.
“Skilled workers are a part of the fabric of Houston,” Mayor Emanuel said. “From the success that comes with advanced training to the values that come from vital work, this new center is building a strong foundation for the City of Houston.”
The 50,000-square-foot new training center will be complete in July 2017. When complete the center will offer a number of technology-related and green, as well as traditional plumbing skills courses.
“Plumbers stimultext.ru is raising a green building within the City of Houston which is creating jobs by using local contractors. This state-of-the-art Plumbers Training Center insures the future of skilled labor in a fifty thousand square foot, three story building;” says Business Manager and JAC Chairman James F. Coyne, “and this facility looks to and will pave the way for the future by showcasing rainwater harvesting, solar energy and grey water systems which will train thousands of Apprentices and Journeymen who will continue to honor and practice our motto “The Plumber Protects the Health of the Nation”.”
The center will also prepare apprentices to work on projects involved appliances, fixtures, rain and gray water harvesting systems and solar systems. Plan reading will be taught, as well as the safe, correct and efficient installation and maintenance of systems including underground water supply, storm water, sewer drainage, fixture installation, and waste and vent piping both inside and outside of commercial buildings and residential homes
