COOKEVILLE – For CHC Mechanical Contractors, satisfying client needs using creativity, innovation and a commitment to safety is a high priority. Doing all of that has also led to industry recognition with a Construction of Excellence Award from Associated Builders & Contractors.

The Cookeville-based mechanical contractor was selected based on its work for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency office building at the Ellington Agricultural Center on Edmonson Pike in Nashville. CHC Mechanical won the award in the $2 million to $5 million category.

“This is a great honor, and I’m proud of the high level of work our team puts in for all of our clients,” said Garry Floeter, president of CHC Mechanical Contractors. “The TWRA project showcased our adaptability and flexibility, while maintaining the specific request to keep the building open so that TWRA personnel could still maintain business as usual.”

The TWRA project was a complete mechanical and electrical renovation of its three-story, 37,000-square-foot, 48-year-old office building. The existing heating and cooling system and equipment – which was state-of-the-art when it was installed – was removed. It was replaced with a modern HVAC system and all associated equipment, condensing units and indoor air handling units. In addition to new equipment, a facility-wide automation controls system was provided.

The project was originally designed to be accomplished over 12 months but was modified to accommodate TWRA’s desire to not relocate employees to another building during construction. In turn, the project schedule expanded, increasing the project’s complexity and duration to 19 months.

CHC Mechanical Contractors has been providing mechanical construction, plumbing and related support services for commercial, industrial and institutional projects to the Upper Cumberland and Middle Tennessee since 1969. For more information, visit or call 931-528-5514.
