How We Can Help Property and Facility Managers

Intuitive, Customized Support for Property Managers

We help you manage better.

We've spent decades tailoring our Mechanical HVAC, Electrical, Plumbing & Maintenance services in order to streamline and prevent typical management headaches.

We speak your language.

We know what your tenants, asset managers, REITs and budgets are demanding of you.  Understanding the leasing and renewal process, identifying tenant/management responsibilities, getting tenants moved in/out on time and assisting in a manner that is helpful to you as the manager is our primary goal, and second nature to our team.

24/7/365 Service

We've got you covered with 24/7/365 service call resolution.  We service many small-midsize and even the nation's top commercial real estate, facility management and leasing firms.

We perform.

With 30-90 minute typical emergency response times, we're one the move.  We follow up quickly with detailed documentation and invoicing, creating a full accountability trail for every single visit at your locations.

Reliable Digital Documents

We deliver the reliable digital documents that you need.  All status updates and due-diligence surveys are delivered electronically and in real-time upon completion, along with image links and automatic follow-up quote generation as-needed.

We memorize your properties.

By memorizing your properties, we're able to service the location quicker and more efficiently each time.  We strive to know your properties as well as you do, and to be your eyes and ears while at the location.

We predict failures.

With a routine infrared and electrical code inspection survey, we can document your hot spots and identify areas of concern.  This enables us to fix the little issues before they become big problems.

We love the small stuff.

Even though we're large-project-ready, we don't just chase "big" jobs.  We know the small troublesome service calls are just as important to you as the big jobs, and we resolve them all, regardless of size and always urgently.

Helpful Programs

We have several helpful programs to keep your facilities running smoothly, and you can read more about them here.  However, here's a quick run-down of some of the things what we offer.

HVAC Preventative Maintenance Program

We track your HVAC equipment and keep it serviced and maintained, typically on a quarterly basis.  After every single visit we automatically send you a quote for our recommendations.

Lift Station & Storm Drain Maintenance Program

Recurring preventative maintenance visits for your lift stations or storm drain systems.  Keeping them on-line and running properly prevents emergency back-up situations and costly after-thought repairs.

LED Retrofits On-the-Fly

Retrofitting an entire building or portfolio with LEDs all at once can be a real budget breaker.  Instead of changing fixtures all at once, we can simply retrofit them in real-time as individual old fixtures "fail."  Flexible, AND budget friendly.

Annual Backflow Inspections

Annual inspection and testing of backflow prevention devices to ensure that pollutants aren't entering potable water sources.  Includes full inspection, reporting, quoting, and filing of proper paperwork with local utility districts.
