Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication
Waiting on third parties to get your HVAC project going wastes valuable time.
Custom sheet metal ductwork from SUI ensures your project meets your exact specifications.
There are some HVAC contractors out there who believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. Sure, for some buildings standard-sized ductwork will work, but there’s a problem.
Working with a provider who doesn’t do their HVAC fabrication in house means extra costs passed on to you. Think about these two options:
Some providers claim to offer custom solutions but they end up turning to one of their partner retailers to procure the ductwork that makes up the heart of your system. Not only should this give you concern about quality assurance, but that cost will inevitably be passed right on to you.
Even if the ducts were manufactured to high quality standards, a non-custom solution means that you aren’t getting exactly the solution that your facility needs. This leads to inefficiency and waste.
You may be reassured to know that your ductwork is being created custom to your needs, but concerns highlighted above can also rear their head. First, you are right to be concerned about quality. It is next to impossible to get a handle on quality standards when the work is being subcontracted out. And, of course, that cost is yet again going to be passed on to you.
However, there is another problem with having custom work done by an outside source: the effect it has on project timelines. The more wrenches that are thrown into the machine, the slower it is going to run.
When we say we are designing and building your system from the ground up, we mean it. We take a consultative approach to understand the nature of the project, the exact requirements you have for heating and cooling, and the specifications needed to make it happen.
Ductwork procurement can be one of the most time-consuming parts of any project. However, when it’s made in house, we can cut down on project times and eliminate concerns you may have about delays.
It is easy to imagine a change in the scope of a project or something else that would cause a severe delay from another provider, but we can adapt and adjust on the fly, ensuring that your project is completed on time and on budget.
The team at SUI has the expertise and the tools to be flexible and simplify the entire process.
Some buildings are uniquely designed, both for aesthetic purposes and for a particular practical use. In this situation, there is almost never an adequate out-of-the-box solution that will work to meet the building’s heating and cooling needs.
These types of projects almost inherently involve more time dedicated to design and procurement, but because SUI specializes in providing custom solutions for all of our projects, this will never be a concern.
Older buildings can also suffer from problems with ductwork that isn’t quite right. The advantage of a custom solution is that we can fabricate ductwork that meets the needs of your facility as it is without having to make significant changes. Modern prefabricated ductwork often doesn’t fit correctly inside older buildings, but we can solve that problem just like any other.
HVAC systems can be fickle—difficult to optimize for efficiency unless the designer and builder know exactly what they are doing. Having ductwork that doesn’t meet the proper specifications can result in a number of issues, including inefficient use of energy and an inability to heat or cool your building appropriately.
Not only does SUI design and fabricate your ductwork from the beginning with an eye for efficiency, but we also take the same approach with your entire system.
