History

​The History of Design Mechanical

Since our inception in 1984, Design Mechanical has emerged as one of Colorado’s leading commercial HVAC and plumbing contractors. We have designed and installed systems for projects including corporate office buildings, retail space, multi-family residences, clean rooms, computer rooms, hospitals and research laboratories.

1997

Design Mechanical merged with Comfort Systems USA, one of the nation’s largest commercial mechanical contractors. Comfort Systems currently consists of approximately 40 companies nationwide, with revenues exceeding $1.5 billion. In addition to the financial backing of a large public corporation, the merger afforded Design Mechanical the ability to tap into the expertise and experience of a wide network of companies and therefore to further improve and expand the services we offer.

2002

Design Mechanical merged with Helm Corporation, another Comfort Systems company located in Denver, CO. The addition of Helm to the Design Mechanical team increased our abilities in the prefabrication of plumbing and piping systems.

2003

We merged with Colorado Plumbing Service, a Comfort Systems USA company located in Rifle, CO, that serves the Aspen and Vail markets. The merger benefited the existing customers of Colorado Plumbing, who are now able to enjoy the increased services and capabilities that the larger Design Mechanical network offers.

2007

Western Building Services (another Comfort Systems company) merged with Design Mechanical. This merger streamlined all the service capabilities of the two separate operations into one location in Louisville, Colorado.

2010

We acquired Breckenridge Mechanical, which continues to operate under that name in Breckenridge, Colorado, as a division of Design Mechanical. The division provides plumbing and HVAC service to the Summit County and Eagle County markets.

2015

We were excited to acquire Rocky Mountain Mechanical Systems, located in Denver, Colorado. Rocky Mountain Mechanical, similar to Breckenridge Mechanical, continues to operate under its existing name as a division of Design Mechanical Inc. Rocky Mountain Mechanical Systems’ background in industrial refrigeration and experience with the installation, maintenance and service of larger chiller systems added new capabilities to Design Mechanical. Design Mechanical is currently one of the most complete mechanical contractors in the state of Colorado, with over 300 employees and annual revenues exceeding $65 million.
