People Behind TP Mechanical Introduces Kelly Simerman

Kelly joined TP Mechanical in July 2007 as the Estimating Coordinator of Columbus, and added the Dayton office to her responsibilities in 2015. Kelly has a B.S. in Organizational Leadership from Purdue University, an A.A.S. in Construction Management from Columbus State, and an OSHA10-Hour Certification.

As a pivotal member of the estimation team, Kelly is the central hub of all things estimation–coordinating the receipt and distribution of bid invitations through when a contract is received and the project is turned over to our Operations team.

Internally, Kelly schedules the resources for and tracks all projects that TP Mechanical is bidding. Her responsibilities include keeping all bidding documentation updated and distributed to the estimators to ensure submission of complete and accurate bids. Kelly also provides key financial and goal reporting to management and ensures that all bid documentation is turned over to our Operations team for launching successful projects.

Kelly recently managed the testing, implementation and training for our updated estimation software. This enables TP Mechanical to provide timely estimates and budgets with the highest level of accuracy. Kelly also maintains the database with the latest material and labor pricing available, and troubleshoots any technical issues.

Kelly’s external customers consist of construction managers, general contractors, subcontractors and vendors. She keeps this group informed about the projects TP Mechanical is bidding, ensures they receive proper documentation during the bidding process, and keeps the communication flowing back to our estimating team.

When asked why she believes TP Mechanical stands apart from other mechanical contractors in our area, Kelly replied, “Being a mechanical sub-contractor that offers all three disciplines – plumbing, HVAC and fire protection – sets us apart.”

Kelly feels this gives us an advantage in meeting our clients’ objectives by delivering comprehensive mechanical solutions. Additionally, she believes TP Mechanical’s commitment to fabrication, safety and employee mentoring shows our dedication to innovating while adhering to the highest standards within the industry.
