Save Up to 10% on HVAC Fabrication Costs

Bringing You Savings from Every Angle

At ZEN Industries, we approach every angle of HVAC projects with careful consideration to efficiency, timeliness, and significant savings – a powerful philosophy and practice known as The ZEN Way. 

From start to finish, our smart. streamlined, and comprehensive approach to the fabrication of ductwork, spiral duct, and fittings provides you with substantial savings and other unforeseen advantages as you complete your HVAC projects. 

A job your company bids out at $100,000 can easily come in under $90,000 after ZEN Industries maps out your entire project with greater accuracy and efficiency. Add in our exceptional customer service and you have an unbeatable combination.

Better Fabrication Costs for Direct Savings

By coordinating our software models with coil line production, we can ensure that you only pay for the duct lengths and fittings pieces you need, pre-fit and ready to install, allowing you to avoid costly and time-consuming troubleshooting on site.

Customers can expect up to 10% in savings in production costs alone, based on their original bid.

 Better Fabrication Saves on Labor Too

The more non-standard length pieces, extra fittings, and improvisation needed on site, the more labor.

At ZEN, our coordination and building information models are so precise that we can optimize the number of standard lengths of duct and minimize the total number of joints and fittings.

Less labor and trouble shooting during installation leads to direct savings for you.

The ZEN Way is a smarter and more efficient approach to fabrication that leads to a cascade of costs savings at each step along the way.

Maximize Workforce Potential

The ZEN Way replaces unorganized duct deliveries with precision-fit, numbered, and properly sorted pieces, making it easy for less experienced and less costly labor to handle installation, in much less time. 

Your more capable, premium labor can now spend their time more effectively on other important, high-level tasks. 

Work that used to be performed by labor costing $25-35 per hour can now be done by labor that only costs $15 per hour!  And by never having to deal with a messy heap of unsorted and unnumbered materials, you can save even more on labor by increasing efficiency and saving time.

ZEN Industries makes it possible to get more out of your valuable workforce and minimize wasted labor.  It’s yet another way to save money, The ZEN Way!

Avoid Project Conflicts

man avoiding project conflictOne of the most frustrating aspects of completing a major HVAC project is running into conflicts with other types of work being performed as you’re trying to get ductwork completed. 

For example, a team of electricians may plan on running some wire in a location that will interfere with your duct installation.  This results in a great deal of frustration and time-consuming troubleshooting and conflict resolution. 

Avoid these messy conflicts before your project even begins and keep things moving by taking advantage of the power of our precise building information models. 

At ZEN M.E.P., a division of ZEN Industries, we harness the power of technology and the expertise of experienced engineers to eliminate conflicts. 

By building out your project in a realistic 3D model, we can recognize potential conflicts and resolve them before they ever become a problem.

The best way to deal with potential project conflicts is to avoid them in the first place.  Our advanced technology and precise pre-planning ensures that you save even more money and time, The ZEN Way.

Even ZEN's Delivery Logistics Save Money

delivery truckZEN Industries’ proactive delivery logistics works to fit your project’s schedule by sending trucks to your site that contain the materials you need at any given point in the project, for a specific pre-planned work zone. 

For example, if you will be working on the 11th floor this week, we will get every numbered piece you need for that floor.

We understand that projects can and often do change course midway.  No problem!  Just give us the proper numbers for whatever you need next, and we can coordinate delivery with your work area.

Properly executed, delivery logistics saves you money by eliminating confusion and placing the materials you need today at your fingertips – well ordered, precisely numbered, and precision fit in virtual space before a single piece is ever hung.

A smooth, efficient installation is your best way to savings and greater profitability.
