Creating Mechanical Systems since 2003

About us

MechSouth was formed in 2003 by Shane Patterson and Joe Harrison to address the need for a creative, flexible shop capable of handling complicated mechanical work. We will work anywhere in Georgia. Our office is located in the heart of downtown Decatur, at 318-A East Howard Avenue.

Joe Harrison is a 1977 graduate of Georgia Tech, with extensive experience in the industrial and heavy commercial construction market throughout the Southeast.

Shane Patterson completed his engineering training at Southern Tech in Marietta.  His background covers extensive commercial work through Georgia

Work is only part of our lives, and with that in mind, we continually do our best to give something back to our community. Organizations with which we are actively involved, include:

Decatur HS Career Training Committee
Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund
Catholic Metro League of Atlanta
Decatur Parks and Recreation
Ducks Unlimited
Hunters for the Hungry

Philosophy

We do not sell our services based on price. When you select MechSouth, you get a total hands-on management approach by one of the owners. There is no delegation of responsibility. We set up the company with this management philosophy in mind; pricing, scheduling, shop drawings, labor supervision, quality control, and all close-out documentation are handled by the same person.

Our philosophy is that we would rather have a small base of 100% satisfied clients, than a constantly changing group who can’t distinguish us from our completion. Put another way, it’s a lot easier to keep a good customer than find a new one.

We are:

  • Experienced in all mechanical systems
  • Able to handle true design building projects
  • Always able to staff your project with the best skilled craftsmen at all times
  • Experts in the repair and maintenance of all types of HVAC systems

We are Not

  • Sales or volume driven
  • A plan/spec low bid contractor
  • A mechanical broker who subs our work
  • A service or residential HVAC contractor

We hand-craft Creative
