Work is really moving along well on the new building for Pumper Plumbing and Heating in Dundas. We started the building late last fall and have worked on it over the winter months.
It is located on the south side of Dundas adjacent to the building we constructed for Lonsdale Painting/TrimCote.
Pumper Plumbing is working at “fitting up” the new building with various shelves, racking, etc. It takes a fair amount of space to inventory the wide variety of plumbing and heating supplies that they must have on hand. There must be good order to the inventory as well otherwise journeymen plumbers are wasting time looking for fittings, valves, etc.
Pumper Plumbing constructed their builiding a bit larger than they need right now. They are leasing some space to Straight Edge Concrete which should work well. They also have some additional space available for lease in the building.
This will be a great home for Pumper Plumbing. They continue to grow to serve the Northfield area. Up until now they have been leasing space next to us in the Northfield Construction Company building. Pumper Plumbing simply outgrew their leased space. Since we work together on so many projects it has been very convenient for us all being located close together. We will miss that close association but will continue to work together to create fine projects for our clients.

The office and storage space Pumper Plumbing is vacating is being taken over by McGhie & Betts Engineering. McGhie & Betts leases space in the Northfield Construction Company building but was needing additional space. The space occupied by Pumper Plumbing will work perfectly for them to expand some office area and also create some new dedicated labratory space. McGhie & Betts is a full service civil engineering firm that performs civil engineering, surveying, testing of concrete and various materials, excavation observation, soils analysis, and many other tasks. Northfield Construction Company uses McGhie & Betts for the majority of our construction testing services. Again, it is great having them right here in the building with us.
