Our People

At Celtic, we realize that our people are the most valuable asset we bring to a project. Each member of our team brings a different skill set, perspective, and personality that enhances both project success and workplace atmosphere.

Our staff of 200+ manufacturing and construction professionals along with our support staff ensure that our work is completed to the highest possible standard. Our team includes estimators, sketchers, project managers, field superintendents, project engineers, and support personnel. All field staff are, at minimum, OSHA 30-hour certified for construction safety.

Together, our teams work closely with our clients, design partners, and trade contractors to design, develop and deliver comprehensive solutions.

Engineers & Draftsmen

Celtic’s engineers and draftsmen (aka sketchers) use state of the art tools to design the HVAC solutions that the company manufacturers and installs. Located in the company’s Orangeburg, NY office, our engineering team works closely with the other departments at Celtic, particularly manufacturing and field project management, to ensure our finished product not only meets but exceeds customer expectations.

Software applications used by our engineers include Building Information Modeling (BIM), an intelligent 3D model-based platform that provides the tools to efficiently design, manufacture, and install our product. Our engineers and sketchers are also proficient in the use of Navisworks, and Autodesk’s AutoCAD  and Revit applications.

Estimating cost is a critical step in the bidding process and one that also plays a major role in ensuring the successful implementation and completion of any project.

At Celtic our estimators collect and analyze all the data available for any given project in order to determine the time, materials, and labor required to manufacture and install our product. The information gathering process typically involves examining project blueprints to determine  functionality requirements, as well as performing material take-offs to determine quantities needed.  Our estimators then work closely with Celtic senior management, as well as manufacturing and field personnel to ensure project estimates are as accurate as possible.

Job Foremen & Sheet Metal Workers

With a job site workforce of as many as 200 personnel at any given time,  “on the ground” leadership is critical to the success of our projects. Our job foremen provide this leadership and ensure that our projects stay on schedule and on budget. We are proud to acknowledge that our job foremen have an average of over 15 years of service with the company.

Project Managers

Celtic’s project managers have overall responsibility for controlling the cost and quality of the construction projects they oversee. They plan and coordinate all aspects of the construction process, working closely with contractors, engineers, architects, vendors and others to ensure the project is completed on time and on budget. A project manager will typically begin a project by determining the scheduling of different phases of a project based on deadlines established with the various stakeholders.

Celtic’s project managers may have responsibility for a single project or multiple projects at any one time. This typically depends on the size of the construction project(s) in question as well as the experience level of the project manager involved.

Once a project is underway project managers confer regularly with supervisors and other managers to monitor construction progress, productivity levels, and compliance with building and safety codes. All project managers attend a weekly project progress review meeting.
