  • After working in every building on campus, retiree doing projects at home

    For more than 21 years of Tim Wood's 30-year career as a pipe fitter/steamfitter at the UI, he installed and maintained systems in buildings on the north campus, such as Beckman Institute, shown in the background. The wide array of projects, especially faculty members' research projects, and buildings that he worked on kept his job challenging, Wood said. Since retiring on Aug. 30, Wood has been busy working on his own home and helping his father and brother with the harvest on the family farm near Sadorus.
