ABMECH has the ability to provide pricing estimates in lump sum, time & material or cost plus. We have developed our own estimating software programs which allow us to quickly provide man hours, as well as real time cost information to our customers on time & material orders on a daily basis, if required. We are a mobile contractor which gives us access to “local labor” regardless of what area our project is located in the states of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, New York and West Virginia. We have a strong labor base in the Pittsburgh, PA area and in most cases can respond to your needs in 90 minutes or less.

Since 2010 we have been an active participant in the PENNSAFE State-Certified Workplace Safety Initiative.  ABMECH’s commitment to safety is illustrated by our EMR (Experience Modification Rate) of 0.732, a figure almost unheard of in the industry, and also by our Certified Safety Committee Mission Statement:
