How We Expect to Build on a Successful 2017

TP Mechanical has been a leader in providing contractor services for large-scale construction projects ranging from factories to schools to hospitals since 1953.

We’ve built on this successful tradition in 2016, and we expect an even more successful future because of our safety programs, innovative thinking and technology capabilities for plumbing, HVAC and fire protection service.

Safety First, Always First

TP Mechanical has performed, as of early August, more than 2 million man-hours of work without a lost-time accident – nearly one-third the industry average. We work closely with OSHA, participating in its safety training programs and Voluntary Protection Program to reduce accidents on the jobsite.

President and CEO Bill Riddle says safety drives the TP Mechanical culture, and due to all these efforts, our 2016 safety awards include:

  • ABC | Step Platinum Award
  • ABC Employer of the Year Safety Award
  • ABC Award of Excellence for The Christ Hospital Orthopedic & Spine Mechanical Commercial $2 to $10 million
  • ABC Award of Merit for the Summit Country Day Mechanical Commercial $2 to $10 million

Innovative Thinking

TP Mechanical’s innovation and forward-thinking problem-solving are major drivers for success. “I think we’re on the cutting edge with technology and processes,” Riddle says.

One of our biggest innovations is completing almost 30 percent of our project in the regulated environment of our fabrication shop before starting work on-site. More than 60 employees staff the shop for around-the-clock operations, incorporating advanced automation technology such as automated welding machines and tracking software to ensure workflow is managed smoothly.

A Bright Future

TP Mechanical will continue implementing technologies, such as BIM for rendering projects in a 3-D model. Riddle believes TP Mechanical will continue to find success with a focus on innovation and a dedication to safety, “I believe that over the next couple of years we should experience continuous growth in our industry.”

We look forward to sharing that success with you in 2017 and beyond; please Contact Us for your next project.

How TP Mechanical Makes BIM Work for You

Sometimes our focus is so trained on the results that it can be eye-opening to look at the important steps required to get there. And one of those essential building blocks for TP Mechanical is BIM – or Building Information Modeling.

With BIM, our design/build teams use one comprehensive system of digital drawings that all members can access, instead of working on separate drawings. BIM combines 3-D modeling and information management for a more collaborative, streamlined effort that reduces the likelihood of mistakes.

TP Mechanical’s Design/Build Services

TP Mechanical’s expert design/build teams apply BIM methodology, along with pre-fabrication techniques and LEED principles, to create custom designs that meet your specific project needs. We collaborate with owners, architects and construction managers to design mechanical systems that accomplish multiple construction objectives. We provide engineering services for:

  • System Lifecycle Cost Analysis
  • HVAC Design Heat Load Calculations
  • HVAC System Design
  • Plumbing System Design and Layout
  • Fire Sprinkler Design and Layout
  • Duct and Piping Sizing and Layout
  • Equipment Selection
  • Energy Usage Analysis
  • Industrial Ventilation
  • Control Sequence Operations
  • Specifications

The BIM Bottom Line

By using BIM, TP Mechanical offers you the advantage of superior design capabilities along with true bottom-line benefits such as increased savings, faster results, improved accuracy and reduced risk of errors or discrepancies.

How Can ISO 9001:2008 Certification Benefit Your Company?

When you see that a company is certified as conforming to the ISO 9001:2008 Standards, you can count on this: The company’s production processes meet established international standards for quality. That may help you, as a customer, satisfy your legal or contractual requirements and ensures you’re working with an organization that places a high priority on quality.

To achieve certification of conformity to the ISO 9001:2008 Standards companies must demonstrate that they can meet regulatory requirements and apply a Quality Management System effectively. At TP Mechanical, we believe in reducing costs, increasing customer satisfaction – all of which are part of our Quality Management System.

TP Mechanical: ISO 9001:2008

TP Mechanical has a registered ISO 9001:2008 certification of conformity for our Quality Management System. We earned our registration for “prefabrication of components for the purpose of fast-track construction in the piping and mechanical plumbing fields.”

As a mechanical contractor specializing in large commercial construction projects, TP Mechanical utilizes prefabrication to reduce construction costs and shorten schedules while decreasing waste and scrap. By doing more work in the shop – in a controlled, dedicated facility – we also enhance safety d achieve higher quality for the projects we complete on the job site.

Benefits of ISO 9001:2008

TP Mechanical’s conformity to the ISO 9001:2008 Standards allows us to support your organization by delivering the results you want and expect. Our Quality Management System benefits your company by:

  • Improving quality and service
  • Reducing the amount of on-site work
  • Providing on-time delivery
  • Fostering a get it right the first time attitude
  • Reducing mistakes, change orders and defects

How TP Mechanical Can Put Value Engineering to Work for You

Value engineering, value analysis, value methodology. There are a number of names for the same concept, but one thing is certain. Utilizing knowledge and experience to add value to a project or process can deliver a better end result.

The value engineering concept developed during World War II as General Electric purchasing engineers looked for material and component substitutes due to time shortages. Value engineering is now a systematic and organized approach to improve projects, products and processes. It aims to achieve essential functions at the lowest life cycle cost while still maintaining performance, quality, reliability and safety.

Because of the resulting reduced time and lower costs while still assuring quality, many industries embrace value engineering including:

  • Building designers and contractors
  • Auto manufacturers
  • Chemical companies
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Federal and local governments

Enhancing Value Every Step of the Way

TP Mechanical’s Vice President for Cincinnati and Dayton Operations Mayur Kadakia sees first-hand how the company collaborates with clients to provide value engineering on a project-by-project basis. “Our team seeks and achieves the optimum balance between function, cost, performance and safety.”

Engineering BlogOur emphasis on value engineering starts at the very beginning. TP Mechanical’s team of estimators recommend a variety of options to save our clients money while still ensuring end-goal quality. Once a plan is approved, our team of skilled CAD designers then leverage their training in the latest technology, equipment and design techniques to create an efficient, effective design. We employ licensed professional engineers as well as work with outside engineering firms to review designs.

Value engineering can come in a variety of forms – from a decision to use a water-saving shower valve in a college residence hall to recommending a point-of-use water heater instead of traditional tank heaters in a hotel. For each project, a cost-benefit analysis can provide construction managers and owners with the details they need to determine the value of each choice.

TP Mechanical’s designers also stay on top of regulatory rules and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) guidelines in order for clients to stay in compliance and achieve green status. Check out our portfolio of projects to see the results for yourself and then contact us for more information on how we can make value engineering work for your next project.
