When a Vision Becomes a Reality

Proctor Mechanical Corporation was pleased and proud to participate in the construction of a Central Iowa project near and dear to both their hearts and to the people in the area.

Project Superintendent Todd White, along with architects NBBJ and engineers from KJWW, were extremely innovative as they turned an undeveloped field of corn stalks into the mechanical masterpiece: Great River Medical Center.

This project was the Iowa Department of Natural Resources first endeavor to create a desitnation resort on one of its beautiful lakes, Lake Rathbun. 



This project is an 87,000 square foot four-story cancer addition with a basement. Proctor will be completing this project in June of 2003.


This project was a total architectural, electrical, and mechanical renovation of an existing 39,500 square foot elementary school. The project included an addition of 4,112 square feet. The existing hot water heating and rooftop cooling system was completely removed and replaced with a ground source variable refrigerant flow system. This project has to be completed during the school summer break. 



This resort is a 105 room hotel with in indoor water park, conference center, 18 hold golf course and full kitchen. 



This project is the dormitory used by the Graceland University football players. Our scope of work included the complete demolition and renovation of four floors of dormitory restrooms. The project included the addition of variable refrigerant flow system for cooling of lounge areas on 4 floors. The project included a rooftop unit for cooling of restrooms on 4 floors. The project also included demolition of (2) water heaters, (2) storage tanks, and installation of (2) hot water boilers and (1) storage tank. One of the many challenges Proctor Mechanical faced was the tight 7 week schedule with asbestos being discovered in the first week delaying the start. Ductwork would not fit in the existing spaces as designed. PMC worked with the General Contractor and the Mechanical Engineer to redesign the entire HVAC system to make it work in the exisitng conditions. Despite the challenges, PMC finished this project ahead of schedule and the players were able to return to new restrooms and lounges. 

Awards & Featured Projects


Proctor Mechanical Corporation was selected to perform the mechanical portion of the Moulton Elementary School Renovation Project.  The project includes removal of the existing heating and cooling system including boilers, chillers, pumps, condensers, and piping.

Proctor Mechanical provided the plumbing portion of this assisted living project.  This consisted of sanitary, greasy waste, storm water, domestic water, and natural gas systems.

Gabus Family dealerships have been expanding in the Des Moines Area for several years. Proctor Mechanical Corporation has been assisting in constructing their growth for 4 years. When it came time to expand their Gabus Ford Dealership on Merle Hay Road, Proctor Mechanical was chosen as their mechanical contractor of choice. The expansion was a 2 level service addition and an addition of 2 car wash bays. 

This project consisted of the renovation of a concrete framed historic commercial building into a 44 unit apartment building with commercial tenant space. 

The City of Des Moines required Confluence to install a 3,000 gallon grease interceptor to receive the waste from all the existing drains and future drains in the production area. The intended expansion was going to require additional water to support the existing and future phases of the expansion. The existing epoxy coated trench drains were rusting and required replacement. 

Proctor Mechanical Corporation was responsible for the selective demolition of portions of the high pressure steam system and replacing those portions with new.
