We’re building the future with quality, innovation and safety.

A&R Mechanical Contractors, Inc. offers Midwest architects, builders and contractors, a unique combination: the superior performance of a company ranked one of the top 500 specialty construction firms nationwide provided by a family-owned business with strong roots in the Central Illinois community.

We have a broad range of contracting services

The company works with residential and commercial clients in every industry, providing plumbing, heating, air conditioning, sheet metal, piping and ventilation mechanical contracting services as well as crews for excavation and demolition projects. In addition , clients can contract with A&R for individualized maintenance programs to keep facilities of all types – hospitals, schools, civic buildings, residences and factories – in good working order around the clock. Many of our clients including the University of Illinois, VA Healthcare facilities, Regional Medical Centers, and many others have used A&R to develop and build their facilities, then contracted with us to maintain them too.

And give every project our full attention.
But whatever the project, we always treat every customer as if they were our only customer. This includes:

  • Partnering with clients on every phase of their projects
    We work closely with client architects, engineers and builders to ensure that practical, quality-enhancing and cost-cutting innovations are built into every project right from the start. Our breadth of knowledge and experience enables us to build structures and systems that are as cost-efficient to operate and maintain as they are to build and install.
  • Recruiting, training and employing the best people
    A&R takes great pride in our staff – and for good reason. Our union workers are constantly learning new techniques and upgrading their skills. They take personal responsibility for performing at an exceptional level not only to support our company’s reputation but to fulfill their own sense of professional achievement. And it shows. 
  • Leveraging innovative technology for the best results
    We’re always looking for new and better ways to do our work from using the latest tools and techniques such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) to designing and developing our own pre-fabricated building elements to ensure superior quality while saving time, trouble and expense on construction sites.
  • Putting safety first
    Minimizing risk to our workers is the right thing to do for them, for our company, for our clients, and for your project. A safe work site is always a more productive and cost-effective one. At A&R we make workplace safety a prime directive – for the sake of our workers, their families, our company’s reputation and our clients’ peace of mind.

Whatever we do, we’re in it for the long term.
Whether we’re installing a replacement ventilation system, building a new medical complex, excavating a municipal project or answering an emergency call for maintenance at a factory – we don’t cut corners, take short cuts or neglect safety standards. We know that when clients can count on the quality of our work, we can count on their future business.
