After bolting and welding the HRSG in

Aiming for Excellence
Based in New York City, Durr Mechanical
has established itself as one of the leading
mechanical contractors in the Northeast
area. Founder Bob Durr Sr. started the
company in 1985, with a focus on quality
Since then, Durr Mechanical says it has
dedicated itself to excellent workmanship,
on-time completion, budget delivery and
high safety standards. "Our customers
know that when you need a job done
right, you come to Durr Mechanical Construction," it says.
"Our mission is to provide our customers in the power, process and commercial
HVAC markets with services of the highest quality and integrity at a fair profit,"
the company continues. It notes that "we
will provide our employees the opportunity to grow to their fullest potential
through training and mentoring as they
contribute to the success of our family
business while working toward our goal
of safety excellence."
The company has focused on expanding its footprint outside the New York
City area, which included the formation
of its special services group. The division
focuses on maintenance work and more
modestly sized projects. "They're very
busy," Paul Thompson says. "They don't
really get any glamour projects."
He predicts more work ahead for Durr
Mechanical at the Coeymans site. "We're
in the process of developing a couple very
similar projects that we will build in the
same location," he says.
A Constant Focus
Durr Mechanical Construction Inc. has made worker safety of paramount importance. "We
are committed to providing a secure work environment at all times, and employ strict
standards, rigorous employee training and regular review of safety procedures to protect
our employees," it says.
The company's site management and field supervisors plan safety into all of its tasks.
"No details is left to chance, particularly with the heavy lift operations required to set
turbine equipment, generators, HRSG modules and many other types of power and process
equipment," it says.
This constant vigilance, Durr Mechanical notes, safeguards workers from injuries and
promotes higher productivity and makes it more competitive. "In fact, we routinely consult
our insurance company's safety engineer or an industry professional to review our methods
and make safety recommendations," it says.
