Design / Build

Since 1963, System Mechanical and Safety Solutions has provided reliable and cost-effective design­-build work for building owners, developers, and contractors. Over 95% of our projects are design­-build. Our approach is based on extensive experience rebuilding and retrofitting mechanical systems. We apply this knowledge to the design and implementation of new projects in order to reduce expenses, prevent premature damage, and increase the lifecycle of your equipment.

Markets include:

  • Manufacturing
  • Commercial / High Rise
  • Industrial
  • Technology and Research
  • Education
  • Specialty Medical

Equipment Lifecycle a Unique Perspective:

We have studied, planned, repaired, and customized hundreds of mechanical systems for HVAC, hydronic, and process equipment applications in a diverse range of environments. Our team has performed over 3 million square feet of facility studies in the past five years alone. As a result, we understand equipment lifecycles and their interrelationships with connected systems.

How We Apply Our Experience


Evaluate equipment and connected system repair feasibility compared to replacement.

Facility Upgrades and New Construction

Incorporate high-value long term solutions while working within complex project constraints.

Project Development

Provide a range of equipment, component, and technical expertise to meet the most challenging project objectives.

Solutions for Owners and General Contractors

We provide options tailored to meet project and budget objectives for facility professionals and general contractors who value innovative and cost-saving solutions.

Cost Savings

Using an engineering-informed approach to equipment rebuild and retrofit, we have saved owners up to 70% the cost of replacement.

Energy and Efficiency

Many of our projects have the potential for energy and cost saving incentives from participating utilities. We assist owners with evaluation and processing of potential incentives from concept through recommissionning.

Construction Methods

Mechanical equipment within a building often has limited accessibility. We understand methods to work efficiently and safely in challenging environments.

Construction Safety

We have extensive experience with the unique safety requirements of rebuild projects to achieve safe outcomes on complex projects.
