    The best mechanical systems solutions are the result of close collaborations between contractors and clients, and often third parties, who help with special incentives or financing.

    Our five winning 2016 Design/Build projects made great use of those collaborative relationships to achieve premium comfort, modern efficiency and the utmost in energy savings.

    EMCOR Services New England Mechanical

    Haller Enterprises walked the walk of community service by working with the general contractor to bring new life to a local mission’s 30-year-old facility.

    EMCOR Services New England Mechanical worked with a local bank to obtain C-PACE financing for a building’s window replacement, as it was installing new comfort systems in an occupied office building.

    Mechanical Contractors, Inc.

    Mechanical Contractors, Inc. worked with Trane and the general contractor to install an outstanding, ice storage and air-cooled chiller-based comfort solution for an organization that knows something about comfort: Ingersoll Rand/Trane.

    Wiegmann Associates



    Wiegmann Associates, St. Charles, Mo., collaborated with an aerospace/defense company to design a solution that would be cost-effective without compromising the HVAC and piping systems for the distribution of specialty gas, chilled water and compressed air.

    Integrated Facility Services, St. Louis, Mo., collaborated with Trane to replace and renovate 75-year- old air handlers, refurbish a massive boiler and install Trane Tracer controls in the 100-year-old Missouri Athletic Club. This was a concept plan-and-spec project.
