Modular Design and Engineering Are Taking Over

September 17, 2020

In the last five years, a design trend has emerged. 

Facilities like data centers and other solutions needed for high-tech industries are looking to match their demand with their infrastructure, TAS Energy CEO JT Grumski said, making speed to market a critical factor for builders.

TAS is able to lean on its large facilities in Houston and sleek supply chain to make sure it’s able to deliver the solution when the client needs it.

“We have all the phases that would traditionally go into a stick-built, but we do them in a very shortened schedule in our factory,” Grumski said.

He also praised the amount of experience and intellectual property TAS has acquired over the years to meet customer demands thanks to decades of working with high-tech companies.
That won’t change, even as TAS changes hands after this year’s acquisition by Comfort Systems.

“Part of my job as the CEO was to find a long-term owner for the business that would ensure the seamless continuity for our customers, provide additional capabilities and resources, and also provide expanded growth opportunities for our employees,” Grumski said. “I’ll tell you, with Comfort Systems, I firmly believe we’ve found the ideal, long-term, strategic owner for TAS.”

Grumski found that Comfort Systems is committed to maintaining the current culture, confidence in modular solutions, and desire to keep the current management team with no disruptions to projects.
Its clear modular solutions will continue to grow, and TAS can continue to boast one of the most effective and experienced teams in the industry.
