In the design-build model, Tech Mechanical works side-by-side with general contractors, building owners and property managers on HVAC system design in the early planning and budgeting stages of a project. This affords the Tech Mechanical professionals the opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of the property’s HVAC system design’s functional requirements. This approach decreases the need for multiple changes in direction or budget as the project progresses. In this model, Tech Mechanical’s experts engineer the necessary systems based on the project’s requirements, then install the HVAC system as designed and budgeted.
In the plan-spec model, the client submits engineered plans and specifications to Tech Mechanical. Every element of these plans and specifications are carefully reviewed by the Tech Mechanical estimating team so that a precise quotation can be prepared for the client’s consideration. Once the proposal is accepted, the team collaborates with the design engineer, installing the HVAC systems as specified by the design firm. Tech Mechanical often is able to provide additional cost savings to the client by submitting value engineering options to the mechanical design firm.
