Piping Partnership Helps Seattle Contractor Finish Tunnel Project in Ten Weeks

Posted on August 28, 2018

Every contractor needs the right tools and the right technology to complete his project on-time and on budget. For Shinn Mechanical, one of the most well-respected contractors in the Pacific Northwest, that perfect pairing came courtesy of a partnership with Milwaukee Tools and Victaulic.

 

Tasked with installing a two-mile drain piping system in the Seattle SR 99 tunnel, Shinn relied on Milwaukee’s M18 FUEL™ cordless tools and Victaulic’s Installation-Ready™ coupling technology to help their team succeed in a challenging environment. And succeed they did. The entire pipeline was hydrotested without a single leak.

 

 

“Pairing Victaulic couplings with Milwaukee tools allowed us to finish a job scheduled to take eight months in only 10 weeks,” said Mike Shinn, the founder of Shinn Mechanical.
