The mechanical contractor is one of the main architects in a project, leading many trades through extremely complex and diversified situations starting from the conceptual stage of a building, right through to when the doors open.
The complexity of today’s building systems and techniques is so great that it’s a tribute to the industry’s co-operation and co-ordination when a major project is completed. To do it on time and profitably requires management and administrative skill of the highest order, and full reliance on the professionalism of the entire team.
It’s hard to conceive of something as technical and angular as a building being an organic entity but that’s exactly how a Mechanical Contractor often views it. It has a nervous system, a circulation system, and an alimentary system. A modern building can even sense its surroundings as it must react to stimuli such as cold, heat, dangers such as fire, and be able to perform a real function; housing, storage, manufacture, or commerce.
