Donnelly Mechanical, a mechanical contractor, and The Brandstetter Group, a disaster recovery and insurance claims management specialist, have formed a partnership to streamline the process of replacing damaged mechanical systems by coordinating these efforts directly, and simultaneously, with clients’ insurance companies.
“Many building owners and managers in New York City need immediate help in the wake of Hurricane Sandy,” says Dan Donnelly, CEO of Donnelly Mechanical, founded in 1989. “Our clients’ needs extend beyond the physical and also involve the very complicated and urgent matter of insurance.
“In that regard, we don’t know a better person to partner with during this tragedy than John Brandstetter. We’ve known John for many years, and we’re very pleased to partner with The Brandstetter Group to be able to offer our clients a single-source approach to remedy their buildings’ mechanical problems, while coordinating financial relief through their insurance carriers.”
Serving corporate building owners, managers and tenants, and with 140 employees and more than 90 service vehicles, Donnelly handles all mechanical repairs and equipment replacements for its clients, including HVAC, chillers, fans, motors, pumps, VFDs, cooling towers, dampers, boilers, and steam stations.
The Brandstetter Group, based in New York City, is a disaster recovery firm whose emergency specialists have successfully co-ordinated the insurance claims efforts between their clients and their clients’ insurance companies.
The Group’s services include planning, training and oversight, as well as partnerships that assist its clients’ recovery from fires, floods, environmental disasters, oil spills, and nuclear/radiological releases. Its resources include scientists, engineers, and attorneys specializing in insurance coverage and claims, along with crisis communications.
In short, according to Donnelly,the new partnership means “we can get your HVAC and Steam System equipment repaired immediately, or we will replace your old, damaged equipment with new, energy efficient equipment that meets NYC’s Energy Efficiency Code and simplify insurance recovery simultaneously.”
