Who we are, and who we strive to be:

“We Provide the Comfort”
 is our key focus.

  • We provide the ‘comfort’ for the end product – heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC).
  • We provide the ‘comfort’ to the construction process. We help our customers understand our scope of work and we’re always collaborating with other crafts to make your jobs run efficient and on schedule.
  • We provide the ‘comfort’ to the customers that pay for the work performed. This work will always be of the highest craftsmanship, professionalism and final product.
  • We’ll provide the ‘comfort’ before, during, and especially after your project is complete.


Focus and strengths:

Our focus is being a leader — a leader in project management, a leader in safety, and a leader in new innovative construction practices.

SME Mechanical’s people bring great strengths and abilities to your project. With 160 years of combined experience, our engineers, project managers and estimators have an advantage in today’s ever-changing construction industry.

On-site, our first job is always SAFETY. We are committed to the families of our employees by providing a safe place to work. Prevention is key, and we require a basic OSHA training and first aid/CPR courses. In addition, we supply year-round safety updates in all aspects of the trade to all employees.
