Role of the Mechanical Contractor

As was mentioned earlier, the mechanical contractor and his team are vital to the overall construction process. So important is this complex organization of skilled specialists that the mechanical contract for most types of buildings is usually the largest single contract involved in the construction.

On the job, the mechanical contractor works with other specialty contractors who install the electrical system to provide light and power, erect the steel framework, lay the flooring and cover the walls, apply the paint and plaster, install insulation, glass and other necessary equipment and services.
