Company Story:

Getting their start in 2012, 5 Seasons Mechanical is a fairly new company. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, they specialize in light-to-medium commercial HVAC work for a variety of different establishments.  Past jobs include working on office buildings, dental clinics, primary care facilities, retail spaces and elementary schools.

5 Seasons Mechanical’s owner is from Tunisia, a country in Northern Africa and the company is certified as a minority-owned business by the city of Atlanta and several surrounding counties.

“The deciding factor for us was the simplicity of STACK. It’s so user-friendly and we can get new employees up and running on it quickly and easily!”

Overcoming Challenges:

The biggest challenge 5 Seasons Mechanical had to overcome is securing the right management personnel to run the jobs they get.  “With the market being so active, all the good people are already employed. This makes it difficult to find, hire and retain high quality people,” says James Andrews, Senior Estimator at 5 Seasons Mechanical.

Looking into the future, 5 Seasons Mechanical is looking into expanding the service group side of their company that does retro-fit work in commercial facilities.  They see this as a big opportunity to service an aging HVAC market that is in need of repair or replacement.

“It’s amazing how much quicker takeoffs are using STACK compared to the old-fashioned way.”

How STACK Has Helped 5 Seasons Mechanical

When James was first hired, the #1 priority was to implement a computer-based estimating system. Prior to STACK, they were using pencil and paper which was making it difficult to bid enough work to stay busy.  After evaluating 4-5 different systems, they choose STACK as the best fit for their company. “The deciding factor for us was the simplicity of STACK. It’s so user-friendly and we can get new employees up and running on it quickly and easily,” says James Andrews.

“It’s amazing how much quicker it is to do takeoffs using STACK compared to the old-fashioned way.  In the past we’d have to print plans, bring them in, use colored pencils to mark everything up and measure with a measuring tape,” says James Andrews. “Using STACK, we can do 2-3 jobs in the same amount of time that it took us to do one hard-takeoff in the past.”
