Our Expertise

When Burns Bros was founded in 1901, our main business was primarily Plumbing and HVAC. While we have expanded our services over the past century, Plumbing, HVAC, Process Piping and Fabrication remain at the heart of our business. This consistent focus has earned us a strong reputation as a leader in the mechanical contracting industry.


In today’s buildings, HVAC systems are not merely installed for comfort, but they must also account for indoor air quality and maximize efficiency. Burns Bros Contractors installs and maintains HVAC systems that continually manage the comfort of building occupants while keeping energy costs to a minimum.



Our rich heritage is founded on the plumbing trade and we have evolved over the years into an industry-leading plumbing systems installer. We handle and deliver sophisticated and large-scale plumbing systems in our ordinary work. We deploy proven processes, involving our supply chain, technology, prefabrication, and our extraordinary and experienced workforce for safe and effective installations.


Process and High Purity Piping

We are a proven leader in the field of process piping. With an integrated system of people, safety, systems, and fabrication, we deliver the most demanding projects under budget and on schedule. When high purity is required, so is Burns Bros. High purity process systems are among our specialties. Our highly skilled and professionally led team use the latest welding technologies and are recognized for award-winning project execution.



Experience is something that can’t be fabricated. At Burns Bros, we have spent years crafting sophisticated equipment and piping assemblies at our fabrication facilities. Our expansive facilities allow us to maximize productivity using a controlled environment for optimal quality and efficiency.
