|Appears in||BioShock: Rapture (Novel)|
Bud Chinowski is the owner of Chinowski's Maintenance, a New York maintenance and plumbing company, employing among others, Roy Phinn, and Bill McDonagh as well as Pablo Navarro, before the two latters travelled to Rapture. In BioShock: Rapture, Chinowski sends McDonagh to do a plumbing job for Andrew Ryan, leading to their first meeting and subsequent friendship. When Ryan is impressed by McDonagh's pride in his work, he sends his Security Chief Sullivan to contact Chinowski and hire McDonagh, but Chinowski claims to have lost McDonagh's number, unwilling to give it over to Sullivan, wanting McDonagh's position as Ryan's general contractor. Sullivan instead contacts the phone company, and contacts McDonagh this way, managing to hire him.
