Building Integrity

When you join TOTAL Mechanical, you’re joining a team of professionals dedicated to providing value in designing, installing and maintaining mechanical systems for commercial and industrial applications.

There’s an intended double meaning behind that term. First, everything we do is about establishing and maintaining a building’s integrity. From HVAC, to plumbing, electrical, fire protection, building automation and fabrication, it’s all about the operational integrity of the building. Secondly, it directly relates to maintaining the integrity of all of our relationships. From other employees, associates, building industry partners and our customers, it’s all about performing at our best, and doing what we say we’re going to do, in a forthright and professional manner. Our reputation depends on it. Our Building Integrity will always be TOTAL.

Safety from day one. The welfare and safety of our skilled employees and craftsmen, and all partners on a building project, begins long before the work begins. TOTAL insists on strict adherence to our comprehensive safety program. At TOTAL Mechanical University, new employees attend a rigorous safety orientation before setting foot on a TOTAL job site.

Our commitment to safety includes a full-time safety director and a continuous education program to ensure that all employees stay up-to-date on safety procedures and the latest protective equipment needed to keep them and the job site safe. Safety protocols are administered and supervised by our TOTAL Safety Review Board, a team consisting of union and non-union office and field personnel. TOTAL has received numerous safety awards and has been cited as a safe workplace for over 30 years.
