About Us

After more than 30 years, Critchfield Mechanical, Inc. (CMI) remains one of the finest mechanical contractors in Northern California, specializing in the design, fabrication and installation of heating, ventilating, air conditioning, plumbing & process piping systems.

Joe Critchfield, his sons and a team of professionals have earned CMI a well-deserved reputation for excellence. Regardless of the application – multi-story office buildings, hospitals, data centers, hotels, LEED buildings and more – CMI is known for quality workmanship, timely project completion and budget consciousness. CMI’s goal on each project is to maximize occupant comfort, minimize operating costs and maintain a competitive first cost for construction. Our employees welcome the opportunity to participate in a concerted team effort with other trades involved in the design and construction process. We believe this team philosophy engenders increased productivity and quality. Continued growth is the product of our continual focus on quality.

Our 200,000 sq. ft. headquarters in San Jose, California includes an office, fabrication shops and a large warehouse. In the office, our engineers and CAD/detailing department work side by side; in the sheet metal shop, we fabricate duct work, piping, plenums and specialized fittings. Our warehouse allows thousands of parts and equipment to be stored, enabling rapid turn-around for fast-track projects.

In addition to our headquarters, we have offices located in the North Bay of California, Southern California, Hawaii, Virginia and several on-site project offices across the country.
