Tweet/Garot has been a family-owned mechanical contracting business for over 120 years. Beyond simply designing and building high-quality mechanical solutions, our industry-best workforce provides a complete commitment to each project and extraordinary customer service.
Tweet/Garot design teams continue to push limits of technology within the construction industry. We have created the ability to provide a more detailed mechanical concept model to our construction partners with less information, and in record times.
With nearly 155,000 square feet of prefabrication space, our customers are confident in our ability to not only reduce our man-hours on site and reduce transportation costs, but also help shorten the time required to complete our critical, preliminary work.
Tweet/Garot is dedicated to providing our clients with a smarter, energy-efficient, and more comfortable facility, always functioning at peak performance.
Tweet/Garot specializes in—and is recognized for—our ability to work around our customers’ demanding schedules, no matter what market. We utilize fast-track construction methodology, virtual design technology, and continuous improvement in all that we do. Our clients know that Tweet/Garot thrives on solving challenges.
This was a negotiated project with Boldt that was based on a narrative and was developed into a cost. Sheet Metal Workers, Pipe Fitters and Plumbers were the type of trade workers involved in the project. Medical gas skills were required for the plumbing trade. Steam Fitters were required to have specific welding certifications based on the steam piping.
Boldt Construction self-performed the majority of the general construction. HJ Martin was responsible for the walls and sheet rock work. We utilized Badger Balancing for the TAB on the project. We also used Complete Control for the Control System and L&C Insulation for all insulating requirements.
We used the Total Station with success and started to utilize Stratus for tracking the materials as well as One Construct. Many hospital facilities are not very energy efficient just because of the nature of the buildings and the people inside. They utilize more air exchanges which in turn makes the heating & cooling systems operate at much higher levels.
One challenge of this project was our compressed schedule and the lack of local trade labor to help the Tweet/Garot crews.
To date there has been no reported injuries reported on this project’s jobsite.
