Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 562

Earth City, Missouri

Pipefitters Training Center

The Challenge

Planning and designing the new training center for the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 562 allowed us to engage with a unique client with very specific needs. Local 562 serves the plumbing and mechanical industry for 67 counties in eastern Missouri, with a 4,500-person member base. To accommodate growth, the organization needed to relocate and expand facilities while maintaining an environment appropriate for both journeymen and apprentices.

The Solution

The new training center is adjacent to Local 562’s newly renovated office and health center, which M+H also designed. The training facility consists of classrooms, labs, hands-on training areas and related support spaces. The welding training area contains individual welding booths with specialized exhaust and filtration systems, and an outdoor training area allows for instruction on outdoor construction activities.
