"Maintenance Mania V" News Release & Recap!

Posted By: Robert Carroll (Member) Past Events ,
Gainesville, FL. / March 9, 2017 - The North Central Florida Apartment Association is pleased to announce that Lucas Chase from Towne Parc Apartments and Gator Investments won the fifth annual Maintenance Mania® competition at the GRU Eastside Operations Center.
 
The competition-presented by NAA and presenting sponsor HD Supply, a leading distributor of maintenance and renovation products-consists of eight maintenance-focused challenges. This season's competitors tested their maintenance skills and knowledge of the industry as they competed locally to earn a spot at the 2017 Maintenance Mania® National Championship in June in Atlanta.
 
Racing against the clock, these highly skilled maintenance professionals competed against each other to see who is the fastest at water heater installation, key control, faucet installation, icemaker installation, fire & carbon monoxide safety installation, toilet conversion, and ceiling fan installation. The finale of the event concluded with a race car competition, where the competitors built a model car using at least one maintenance product or part and raced it down a pinewood derby-style track.
 
"Maintenance professionals are the unsung heroes of the multifamily housing industry," said NAA President and CEO Doug Culkin, CAE. "These dedicated men and women are the backbone of apartment communities, and NAA's Maintenance Mania® program showcases the best of the best in the industry. We're extremely proud to be able to shine a light on such an outstanding group of individuals."
