Leader in Technical Projects

Garrett Mechanical is a full-service mechanical contractor specializing in complex, highly technical projects in the commercial, industrial and health care sectors.

GMI has built its stellar reputation by taking on landmark projects with high degrees of difficulty, including hospitals, laboratory facilities, clinics and even a Presidential Library and Museum. Our painstaking attention to detail has been rewarded with a healthy share of state-commissioned work, including several high-profile projects within the University of Texas and Texas A&M systems.

Larry Garrett explains it simply: “The more technical the project, the better we are.”

In addition to its comprehensive HVAC and plumbing work, GMI is one of the few mechanical contractors in the state with its own sheet metal and pipe-fitting crews. Our concrete and general contracting division is likewise integral to our frequent work on central plants.

Self-performing the vast majority these functions – rather than relying on sub-contractors – enhances on-the-job communication and coordination, and helps us maintain our perfect track record for completing projects on-time and on-budget.

George Bush Memorial Library

GMI served as general contractor during the initial phase of this landmark project, constructing the roads, laying the underground thermal piping, and performing all site utility work, including storm drainage, water and sewer lines. In Phase 2, Manhattan Construction engaged GMI as subcontractors for the HVAC and plumbing needs of this 301,000 square foot, three-building complex spread out over 95 acres on the Texas A&M campus in College Station. The 2½-year, $14.5 million project has earned several national awards and commendations.

Scott White Memorial Hospital

GMI performed all the HVAC and plumbing work for this major hospital expansion in Temple, TX, which encompassed both five and eight-story medical towers totaling 520,000 square feet. The $24 million project, contracted by Manhattan Construction, was completed within budget in just 24 months.

Medical Center of Southeast Texas

R.J. Griffin & Company chose GMI to serve as a mechanical contractor for this 224-bed, state-of-the-art acute care facility in Port Arthur, Texas. GMI performed the HVAC and plumbing work for the eight-story, 315,675 square foot replacement hospital in just 13 months and within its $16 million-dollar budget.

Texas A&M Health Science Center

GMI covered the full spectrum of mechanical contracting needs for this campus project in San Antonio. Our crews buried several miles of thermal piping – enough to feed future building sites across the campus – and installed six tons of cooling capacity as part of the central plant, which was up-and-running in just 12 months. The entire $25 million project also included a classroom and office structure, and a specialized medical building housing state-of-the-art laboratory and research facilities. Satterfield & Pontikes Construction selected GMI for this highly complex assignment.
