BGCFW Project Blueprint Update

LaVar Brewer along with Romeró Roméro from the Plumbers and Steamfitters 166, created an exciting and informative Project Blueprint for our members at their training facility. They provided a detailed tour which included: a welding room; a model 2-story home exposing the frame structure showing the set-up for water intake and drainage; a 5ft deep sand-pit to demonstrate how pipe is laid below the frost line to prevent freezing, and the HVAC training lab. The club members, utilizing skills learned in prior training lessons with LaVar, were able to use a blow torch to solder copper pipes together and reviewed the processes used to clean and cut various pipes. Thank you LaVar and Romeró for this excellent training session filled with so much information. We also wish to thank Kent Prosser and Les Zimmerman who helped create a positive and energetic environment for our members.
