Marelich Mechanical recently received the annual Constructech Team Award — only one of which is awarded each year — during Constructech’s Visions Awards ceremony, for its work on the installation of the HVAC and plumbing systems for the Kaiser Permanente San Leandro Medical Center Hospital Tower and the Central Utility Plant in San Leandro, CA.
The Constructech Vision Awards honor companies that have realized the advantages of applying modern technologies to their everyday businesses.
A leading mechanical contractor in San Francisco Bay Area, Marelich is a subsidiary of EMCOR Group, Inc., a Fortune 500 leader in mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure and facilities services for a diverse range of businesses.
The award recognizes “a project team that experienced considerable success by implementing technology, specifically in regard to one single project or program”, with entries judged on individual merits and on the extent to which they met seven criteria, including how processes have been improved through the use of technology, how new processes resulted in better performance, originality and ingenuity of solutions, and ability to adapt to market conditions through technology.
“It’s an honor to be recognized for our part of a truly impressive team on such a large and sophisticated project with a valued client,” stated Keith Atteberry, president/CEO of Marelich Mechanical.

“Marelich has a proven track record of delivering exacting, complex design requirements for mechanical and plumbing systems with reliability and integrity---it’s what clients who work with us demand and have come to expect from our highly skilled and experienced teams,” Atteberry said.
Marelich’s involvement in the project began at its inception, coordinating the BIM (Building Information Modeling) for all major trades from its own offices prior to the site being ready. The scope of work for the six-story, 434,000 sq.ft. Hospital Tower — which will consist of 12 operating rooms and 264 beds — involves installing the underground utilities feeding the Hospital Tower from the Central Utility Plant, including the steam system, hydronic systems, emergency domestic water system, and medical gas systems. The scope of work for the two-story, 30,300 sq.ft. Central Utility Plant involves installing chillers, pumps, boilers and air handling units.
