Facilities Maintenance and Repairs

Our maintenance services include the ongoing upkeep of your buildings, infrastructure, and equipment to ensure their proper functioning, safety, and longevity. Here’s an overview of how Jos. Schmitt Construction Company approaches facilities maintenance:

Preventive Maintenance

We emphasize preventive maintenance to avoid costly repairs and other unwanted issues. This involves regular inspections, cleaning, lubrication, and minor repairs to keep systems and equipment in good working order.

Scheduled Inspections

Regular inspections are conducted to identify any potential issues before they escalate into major problems. These inspections cover various aspects such as structural integrity, electrical systems, plumbing, HVAC, fire safety systems, and more.

Client Satisfaction

Maintaining high levels of satisfaction is crucial. This involves effective communication, responsiveness to concerns or complaints, and proactive maintenance to ensure that the facilities meet the needs and expectations of the occupants.

Sustainability and Energy Efficiency

With a growing emphasis on sustainability, we focus on implementing energy-efficient solutions and environmentally friendly practices in the facilities we maintain. This may include upgrades to lighting systems, HVAC equipment, insulation, and other energy-consuming systems to reduce operational costs and minimize environmental impact.

Compliance and Regulations

We stay up to date on the relevant building codes, safety regulations, environmental standards, and other legal requirements related to facility maintenance. Compliance with these regulations is necessary to avoid penalties and ensure the safety and integrity of the facilities.

Machine Foundations

Our specialty services also include the construction of machine foundations to support heavy machinery and equipment. At Jos. Schmitt Construction, we work to make sure your machine foundations are stable, function properly, and can isolate vibration properly. These foundations are designed to withstand the large dynamic loads and forces generated by the operation of the machines while preventing any adverse effects on the surrounding structures or environment. Machine foundations are essential in industrial settings where large and heavy machinery is used.

Concrete Work

Concrete work at Jos. Schmitt Construction encompasses numerous tasks and techniques composed of pouring, forming, finishing, and curing the material. Here’s an overview of the key aspects of concrete work:

  • Reinforcement: In many concrete applications, reinforcement is added to enhance the structural strength and durability of the concrete. This involves the placement of steel reinforcement bars (rebar) within the concrete formwork before pouring, which helps to resist tensile forces and prevent cracking.
  • Placing: This part of the concrete process involves placing concrete into forms or molds that create the shape and dimensions of the chosen structural element.
  • Finishing: After the concrete is poured and leveled, we use various finishing techniques to achieve the desired surface texture, and appearance, along with other properties.
  • Curing: Curing is the process of maintaining sufficient moisture and temperature conditions to facilitate the hydration and hardening of the concrete. Proper curing is essential for achieving the desired strength, durability, and performance of the concrete.
