Project Status

The University of British Columbia's Undergraduate Life Sciences & Teaching Laboratories needed virtual design coordination, prefabrication, and new product solutions while under budget constraints, which paved the way for the development of our methodology of Constructible Thinking.


What we do

Commercial Plumbing

Our plumbing specialists are masters in water and gas supply and wastewater drainage systems. We work with contractors, trades, engineers and planners from preconstruction to installation to ensure the job gets done right.


We excel in pre-planning and collaboration, the crucial steps to provide reliable, quality HVAC-R systems for our clients. Our HVAC specialists have expansive experience in heating and cooling systems in all settings.


Our Virtual Design Construction (VDC) capabilities, which include Building Information Management (BIM) modelling, ensure our clients have complete 3D renderings, organization and workflow processes to anticipate any complexity.

Warranty Services

Our extensive two-year warranty program covers any mechanical system that we install. Our warranty team is quick on their toes and takes pride in their work. We make great things happen and guarantee our systems to last.


Our prefabrication hangar has the capacity to address large-scale mechanical contracting needs while ensuring quality and precision. Our collaborative process ensures a high-quality product that fits accurately and saves on build time.

Trade Partner Services

Whatever a client is looking for, if we don’t have the capability in-house, we know the right people for the job. We work with like-minded companies that take pride in their work and have an affinity for innovation and collaboration.

Project Outcomes

Our team navigated multiple specialty plumbing systems including DI/DC water, seawater, multiple specialty air, heating, cooling and lab air systems through the use of dynamic products and inventive layout and design thinking in a complex environment. We provided a state-of-the-art yet simple energy-efficient HVAC system that has exceeded the target goals for the project. Awarded the 2020 VRCA Award of Excellence, this project was a successful implementation of high-end mechanical systems product delivery and energy efficiency.

"Working with True Mechanical on the ULTL project was a very positive experience for us. They maintained the highest level of quality, communication and scheduling and made the completion of this project very easy. Aarc-West would be honoured to partner up with True Mechanical on any project in the future."
