TOTAL Experience

TOTAL Experience

It’s not just our name. It describes our capabilities and our commitment to our customers. Since 1968, we’ve been committed to providing essential mechanical contracting services to design, construct, install and maintain efficient and safe building environments.

We’re your one stop shop for all mission-critical mechanical contracting systems and services—HVAC, plumbing, electrical, fire protection, industrial, building automation and fabrication services—a single-source, design/build mechanical contractor on any size building project.

TOTAL Committment

Our Brand Promise—Building Integrity. We approach every project with a commitment to you, our customer, to strategically plan for your investment in critical mechanical systems, designing the most effective and efficient systems for your building environment, and installing and maintaining them to operate at optimum performance.

Being aware of the latest in sophisticated technologies is one thing. Having the experience and knowledge to engineer, design, install and maintain such a system, with zero defect tolerance and a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee, requires our TOTAL commitment. At TOTAL, Building Integrity describes mechanical systems working in harmony, as well as the commitment we bring to every relationship.

TOTAL Responsibility

The buck stops here. As a general contractor, developer, architect, facilities manager or building owner, you’re interested in a dependable relationship with a mechanical contractor to address all of your mechanical systems. We assume TOTAL responsibility as a single point-of-contact, coordinating all project details from start to finish.

Beginning with your first phone call, through individualized owner training on your new systems, we’re there. From our comprehensive safety program to customized billing. Our attention to detail extends from our experienced engineering staff and estimators, to designers and our skilled technicians and project managers, all collaborating to deliver the TOTAL end-to-end experience.

TOTAL Safety

Safety from day one. The welfare and safety of our skilled 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, new employees attend a rigorous safety orientation before setting foot on a TOTAL job site.

Our commitment to safety includes two full-time safety personnel 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 Committee, 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.

TOTAL Peace-of-mind

Our service ethic comes naturally. Customer service is usually mentioned as a priority for many businesses, including mechanical contractors. At TOTAL, we’ve built our reputation on it, resulting in peace-of-mind for you, our customer.

As we serve our commercial and industrial customers, our preventive maintenance program enables us to analyze your mechanical systems to prevent problems before they occur. Our continuing education curriculum at TOTAL ensures our certified technicians are among the most knowledgeable in the industry.

As a result of our high standards, we warranty our service and repairs for one year—more than double the industry standard.

TOTAL Heritage

Growing to serve. TOTAL Mechanical, Inc. was established in 1968 by an engineering graduate from Marquette University.  Twenty years later, the Company was purchased by Dennis Braun, who was then a 10-year veteran of TOTAL as a union sheet metal technician.  Under Dennis’ leadership, TOTAL Mechanical has grown to be the largest locally-owned mechanical contractor in southeast Wisconsin and a company highly regarded for quality, technical expertise and absolute customer commitment.  Dennis’ dedication to overall excellence continues to define the Company’s processes and beliefs.

Our 36,000 square foot Corporate Headquarters, offering the latest in fabrication and information technology, was built in 1996.  Unique to the industry, this state-of-the-art facility provides a more “employee-centered” workplace, with comfortable work spaces, a fitness center, dining facility and locker rooms. 1996 also saw the start of our Industrial Division. We’ve expanded our facility numerous times to accommodate our steady growth.

Our growth can be attributed, in part, to the acquisitions that we’ve successfully implemented. In 2002, TOTAL purchased Hampton Plumbing, a third-generation commercial plumbing contractor, expanding our plumbing capabilities. In 2004, TOTAL purchased Wenninger Mechanical Services, significantly enhancing our building automation capabilities. TOTAL purchased Downey Mechanical in 2006, resulting in the introduction of our Fire Protection Division. In 2008, TOTAL acquired Lombard Electric, expanding our electrical capabilities.

Today, we employ over 300 people, and we continue to grow. Not through any inherent desire to be the biggest, but to provide the depth and breadth of talent and services that will provide the most complete and “satisfying” level of service to our customers.
