WHAT WE DO

  Mericle is a master builder.

Our employees take responsibility for all phases of your project, from site selection, to design, to excavation, to construction, to fit-out, to property management. In short, we do it all. This unique corporate structure keeps your stress level to a minimum and ensures that your project will be completed on time and on budget.

MARKETING & LEASING

This department works with you to identify and secure the best commercial real estate solutions within Mericle’s portfolio. The four vice presidents in Marketing & Leasing have more than 100 years of combined real estate and economic development experience and have helped more than 200 companies move into Mericle’s buildings.

FINANCE & ACCOUNTING

Mericle’s in-house Finance & Accounting Department administers and manages traditional accounting functions, such as the company’s accounts receivable and billing, accounts payable, payroll and benefits, financial statement preparation, and tax return preparation. This department is also tasked with financing our real estate portfolio, general operating needs, strategic planning, and financial analysis.

DESIGN-BUILD SERVICES

This department consists of in-house architects, two LEED accredited professionals, project managers, and designers with experience in interior space planning and building systems and specifications. Mericle will assign a project manager who will coordinate your entire project from the preliminary design phase through permitting, construction, and occupancy. The project manager ensures that your project is delivered on schedule as designed and provides the support needed to accommodate your specific requirements and incorporate changes in your scope of work.

ENGINEERING & LAND SERVICES

This department is responsible for land development, obtaining zoning and subdivision approvals, and assessing and installing roads and utilities. Engineering & Land Services prepares several test fits to take advantage of each site’s unique characteristics and to make sure that all of Mericle’s projects are feasible from an economic, architectural, and construction standpoint. Within this department there are several key teams including Land Planning, Surveying, and Excavation.
   
  • Land Planning is comprised of in-house professionals including civil engineers, civil designers, and land planners. Land Planning combines its long history of successful industrial, commercial, and land use projects with today’s latest computer hardware, software, GPS, GIS, and spatial data technology to produce sound and cost effective designs.
 
  • Mericle’s in-house Surveying team consists of a professional land surveyor, assistant surveyors, and construction layout specialists. Using the latest GPS RTI technology, Surveying pre­pares construction layouts for the Excavation and Construction teams and produces boundary, topography, and subdivision surveys on an as-needed basis with an almost immediate turnaround. This accurate, real time information allows Mericle to serve you using the best and most recent site data, which ultimately results in shorter schedules and lower costs.
 
  • Our in-house Ex­cavation team consists of 50 heavy equipment operators and more than 80 Mericle-owned pieces of modern equipment. The Excavation team includes operators, drivers, laborers, mechanics, foremen, superintendents, and project managers.
Excavation prepares sites for construction faster and more economically than all other commercial developers in the markets where Mericle con­ducts business. Excavation’s work allows Marketing & Leasing to show you ReadyToGo!™ Sites which have already been planned, permitted, subdivided, cleared, graded, and compacted for the immediate construc­tion of your building’s foundation. From building pad projects with earthwork of more than 1,500,000 cu­bic yards, to aggregate production, to roadway and utility extension, Ex­cavation has the resources, knowledge, and experience to accomplish any type of infrastructure or land preparation project. Excavation prides itself on its ability to change priorities and realign resources and equip­ment to meet your project schedule.

CONSTRUCTION

Mericle Construction self-performs mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and carpentry functions. Fast-track construction is even faster at Mericle because our excavation and construction divisions self-perform their trades, and because Butler buildings can be erected quickly without expensive fieldwork and on-site modifications. This makes meeting deadlines much less complicated. By fast-tracking a project, Mericle cuts your construction time by as much as 30% over ordinary construction methods.
 
  • General Construction Services consists of construction managers, site superinten­dents, carpenters, and skilled laborers who oversee all aspects of each trade related to the construction process. An integrated purchasing department procures all building materials and equip­ment for the trades.
 
  • Electrical Services is made up of licensed master electricians, journeymen electricians, apprentic­es, and skilled laborers. Electrical Services is re­sponsible for the installation of all electrical systems and is skilled in the latest technologies related to primary and secondary electri­cal services, power distribution systems, grounding systems, light­ing systems, lightning protection, TVSS systems, and data wiring. Electrical Services incorporates the latest versions of national electric codes and international energy codes into its engineering and electrical designs and specializes in delivering complete build­ing systems from the service entrance to the final connections to equipment and machinery.
 
  • Several master plumbers lead the Plumbing and Sprinkler Services team, which includes a dedicated fire protection foreman, plumbing foreman, pipe-fitters, certified welders, and apprentices. Plumbing and Sprinkler Services is responsible for the coordination and installation of fire protection systems in addition to all domestic water distribution, sanitary waste systems, and gas distribution piping in all Mericle projects.
 
  • The HVAC Mechanical Services team consists of HVAC design and installation project man­agers. A broad-based background in industrial and commercial HVAC system design is complemented by skilled tradesmen installing the systems. The trades perform installation of roof­top units, air handlers, condensing units, humidifiers, exhaust/ ventilation fans, ductwork systems, refrigerant piping, insulation, and controls. Service of all HVAC installations is provided by trained service technicians via scheduled maintenance and on an as-needed basis.
