A mechanical contractor is a company engaged in installation, renovation, conversion, repair or service of a mechanical systems usually consisting of the HVAC systems, Ventilation, Plumbing and process piping equipment. They specialize in the construction commercial properties, institutions or industrial complexes. Some mechanical contractors also service and maintain the systems they install by providing maintenance contracts and demand service on all types of mechanical systems.
Planned maintenance is performed on a system at regular intervals that will lessen the chance of a malfunction or total breakdown. The services included vary from each type of system and can be customized to meet the needs of the system and the facility.
Facilities that don’t implement preventive HVAC maintenance programs experience as much as a 50% increase in their total repair and operating costs and degrade equipment reliability, and cause premature equipment failure and downtime. Preventive maintenance really does pay off in the long run, both in improving the performance of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and by saving costs. It’s easy to forget about incorporating preventive maintenance into a building’s operating plan when everything is working properly and operating smoothly. However, when problems occur and repairs are needed because the equipment was not properly maintained, the costs can add up quickly, often exceeding the costs of implementing a preventive maintenance program.
BIM is a process that involves creating and using an intelligent 3D model to inform and communicate project decisions. Design, visualization, simulation, and collaboration enabled by BIM solutions provide greater clarity for all stakeholders across the project lifecycle. BIM makes it easier to achieve project and business goals. In addition, data rich 3D models improve coordination and help prevent costly and unforeseen conflicts, changes and scheduling delays.
