TP Mechanical is excited to be part of a special community project opening Spring 2021 – the new WOSU Public Media Headquarters in Columbus, OH. The building is five floors, totaling 52,000 square feet and will include a community studio, an expanded newsroom, broadcast studios, a performance studio and media learning lab. Each space was expertly designed and engineered with special attention to the building’s acoustics to ensure quiet studio spaces.
As the plumbing and HVAC contractor on the project, TP’s focus was precise sequencing which minimalized delays which allowed for quick progression. Additionally, TP utilized 3D BIM coordination – a critical element to guarantee the systems fit in the tight spaces and will avoid any unwanted vibrations in the studio spaces.
The entire construction team, including Messer Construction, Settle Muter Electric, and Valley Interiors, has executed excellent communication throughout the entire job. “Everyone knew it was going to be a project requiring constant communication. This team truly stepped up,” said TP Project Manager, Shawn Stover.
The new headquarters will be well equipped to help grow and engage the community. The mission of WOSU Public Media is to engage, inform and inspire our diverse community. An NPR and PBS affiliate, WOSU is a noncommercial multimedia organization serving over two million citizens in Central Ohio through broadcast, digital, programming, events, and education experiences.
