The company, with over 75 employees depending on the projects at hand, is comprised of plumbers and pipe fitters, sheet metal workers, project managers, estimators and support staff.

We hire subcontractors on most of our projects. The majority of the work that we subcontract is thermal insulation for ductwork and piping, control systems, refrigeration, geothermal wells drilling, hydronic and air calibration and balancing.

We can provide services for turnkey projects including engineering, design and contracting services. We can also participate in design-build projects or value engineering projects in order to improve the profitability of a project while maintaining the design objectives.

We have participated in the construction of several projects LEED projects ranging from LEED certified to LEED platinum for many different types of commercial and institutional buildings, both in new construction and retrofit. A LEED project requires rigorous monitoring of the materials used as well as the protection of the new installations during the construction. It also requires meticulous attention to details when performing equipment start-ups, extensive commissioning of all the systems and completing the documentation process.

Compliance with building codes is unquestionably the most important aspect in the construction of a building, whether it is for a sustainable building or with any other building. In addition to following the evolution of building codes, we must also adapt to the constantly changing methods and materials that are part of our craft. For example, in the last ten years, the implementation of seismic restraints on mechanical installations has become a mandatory requirement. Learning and understanding the purpose of seismic design and how to implement them properly has been a time consuming process. However, it has permitted us to achieve great results through proper planning and well coordinated installations.
