Construction

The Drake family has been taking care of you since 1909.  Drake Mechanical is a family business, has five generations to thank for serving the Treasure Valley, and you should know that we are still family owned and operated after all these years.  We have had a general contractors license for years, and we have utilized it to do some of our light repairs from mechanical and plumbing projects.  We are expanding our business to cover all areas of general contracting. We are capable of handling all of your construction needs, from full on remodels, tenant build outs, design-build, and new construction projects. We have experience serving customers with a commitment to exceed their expectations. We serve customers all over the Treasure Valley, from Banks,  Wilderness Ranch, and every place in between.

Pre Bid Budgeting and Pre-Construction Design

From Concept to Completion, Drakes is here to fulfill your dreams.  Understanding that most projects require funding, we can create pre-construction project budgets that can be preserved and delivered without additional costs.  We work with great construction professionals who excel at their trades. There is no need for our customer to manage multiple people (unless they would like to).  Rest assured that your project will be well managed, completed with the highest quality expectations, and that no details will fall through the cracks. Sit back and enjoy watching your dreams become reality.  If, at any time, you or your customers have a question, concern, or want things changed, feel free to talk directly with your Project Manager. We will promptly address your needs.

Construction Management

Representing our client’s best interests is one of our greatest assets to providing excellence in customer service.  No matter who you choose to have design your construction project, we promise to do our best to reduce wasted time. We will also communicate directly with architects, engineers, and subcontractors with the utmost professionalism, courtesy, and respect.  Financial liability is the greatest risk factor in your projects, and we have experience managing responsibility to ensure your bottom line is preserved. You want to enjoy the experience in watching your project be conceptualized, from the plan room to opening the front door.  Sit back, relax, and let us worry about the details all while knowing you are in great hands.

Design / Build

The traditional approach of hiring an architect on the design side and a contractor on the building side is a beautiful situation, but why not have them work together?  As a Master Builder, we work directly with the design team to streamline your project, and to ensure it is delivered on time and under budget. Why create a plan that may need to be altered when you can work together, with both sides, to create a buildable design and reduce the need for revisions? Our construction process revolves around you, our customer.  Our dedication to simplify the complicated systems, preserve aesthetic finishes, and maintain quality standards is a concept with your expectations in mind. If you ever want to know more, or just have questions, we are here to share and explain the details-- and that is what sets us apart.

Project Management

Drake Mechanical is dedicated to initiating, planning, scheduling, executing, and delivering the best results possible to complete your construction project.  We not only meet your expectations, we exceed them. Our management philosophy is to lead by example and show our team that we actually care. This means we show up with brooms and trash bags, because a clean jobsite sets high expectations, and because we aren’t afraid to get our hands dirty.  We generate production schedules that detail a critical path to completion, and we share these with our customers as a “road-map” the project intends to take. Construction always encounters some unknowns, but by creating a realistic and anticipated schedule, we take the guesswork out of the equation.  If something does change throughout the project, we update the schedule and share the new details at the earliest opportunity. Proactive planning is another way we do right by our customers and our build team. We don’t plan for surprises but, when they do come up, we find great solutions and manage the responsibility to work through them.

Sustainable, Energy Efficient Construction, and Green Building

These terms get thrown around a lot. We focus on delivering projects that don’t conform to only one aspect of this approach, but focus on doing what is right by our customers and the environment.  Balancing initial investment and return on investment is simpler than ever. Drake Mechanical has its own mechanical and plumbing teams to ensure that your best interests are at the forefront of the project.  We implement simple design techniques that can integrate benefits into site orientation, solar heating potential, and summer cooling potential-- all with wisdom in designing. Utilizing these techniques will result in reducing operational costs, which can be fun and also add a great aesthetic design to your build.  Let us help ensure that your construction project is not only light on your wallet initially, and every month after, but light on the environment, too.

Long Relationships and Continuing Service

Drake Mechanical is here for you even after we've completed your construction project. Drake's is a family-owned and operated business, and we treat our customers like family. That's why we value our relationship with every customer, and why we're committed to serving you with quality and integrity. Even after your project is finished, we're here to serve you for all of your HVAC, plumbing, and any additional property improvements you might need.

We look forward to serving you for the next 109 years-- and beyond!
