Industrial projects are unique missions.

Your process and equipment may be proprietary – so your HVAC systems have to do a lot more than provide comfort. Or you might require highly purified air.

Batchelor & Kimball understands this. Manufacturing and industrial lab facilities are one of a select group of complex air environments we specialize in.

Such projects often require that we work with unfamiliar technologies and adapt to new situations. We’re up to the challenge: Our HVAC and plumbing professionals are motivated by building and deploying systems they haven’t seen before.

We’re also fully accustomed to working around limited or phased-in knowledge when it comes to your manufacturing system. In the industrial setting, confidentiality is paramount.


Our promise to you is to be the team best prepared for the most complex HVAC and plumbing work in the industrial setting.

Here’s how we keep that promise:

Hire and retain talented people. Talent can’t be claimed – it has to be proven. The way we screen and hire our professionals allows us to see if they’re a good fit. If they are, they tend to stay for a long while.

Keep the team safe. With safety, we take no shortcuts and spare no expense. Every day begins with a team analysis of job hazards. And every employee is authorized to stop work if he/she observes an unsafe practice. Our mantra: Go home the way you came in.

Leverage equipment and process to ensure consistency. We fabricate systems, piping and multi-trade racks in a state-of-the-art shop (90,000 sq. ft.). A Class-1000 “clean room” shop allows us to fabricate high-purity stainless steel and hygienic piping to ISO-level standards.

Meticulously track project steps and details. We use advanced technology to integrate information into all facets of a project, from estimating through building turnover. This helps assure pricing, protect scheduling and promote accountability. Deliverables must meet clearly defined standards.

Choose partners carefully. We work only with a select group of experienced subcontractors, whom we’ve partnered with for decades. And we bring in licensed, independent professionals – dedicated to each worksite – to inspect the work of our team before it’s delivered.

Finally, we keep a healthy perspective on our work:

  • We expect high performance and provide our people with unbending support. In turn, they take great pride and ownership in their work.
  • We envision what our mechanical and plumbing work will be like for those who build, use and maintain the facilities we support. The end result is foremost in mind.
  • We see ourselves as problem solvers but never believe we have all of the answers. Every project brings a lesson learned.

FOR Industrial Customers,

we construct / install and maintain:
