January 17, 2012 energyair Share this post by John Bartkovich, Senior Vice President, Commercial Division As we close out 2011 and move on to a fresh new year, it’s a time to look back and recognize the accomplishments of our team. We’re proud to share with you below some of these key milestones for 2011. We graduated 38 students from our in-house Florida Air Conditioning Training Program (FACT) at a graduation celebration on April 22, 2011. Energy Air, Inc. was honored with the prestigious Excellence in Construction Eagle Award for our work at Edgewater High School. We received two Excellence in Construction Awards of Merit for our work at the IKEA project in Tampa and the Gander Academy in Lake Mary. We were ranked as the fourth largest Specialty Contractor in central Florida by the Orlando Business Journal, and we ranked No. 31 on ENRSoutheast’s Top Specialty Contractors list. We once again achieved the Gold level for Associated Builders and Contractors of Central Florida’s Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP). Our residential division was recognized by Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) as a participant in the Quality Assured (QA) Program, which recognizes professional HVAC companies that install heating and cooling systems in support of the ENERGY STAR for Qualified New Homes program. We ranked No. 41 on Orlando Business Journal’s list of the Golden 100: Central Florida’s Largest Privately Held Companies. We once again received a prestigious Four Star TEAM award from Associated Builders and Contractors of Central Florida. We’ve been able to contribute to many local charities that have touched the lives of our employees, as well as families and individuals in our community. While we celebrate these many accomplishments, through reflection, we also realize this year was met with many challenges. It is with great thanks to the hard-working Energy Air Team, our clients, vendors and suppliers that we have remained stable through this economic downturn. As the time of this draft, news has been released that the unemployment rate has fallen in many states. We are hopeful for a continued positive outlook. An election year brings about a sense of uncertainty, but there are many owners that are ready to take advantage of prime conditions for building. We hope we are the contractor of choice as these projects progress. Remember that Energy Air has an in-house design department for design-build/assist projects and a full CAD team for BIM/3D modeling. Our preconstruction team has a complete database of pricing available, so please contact us for any budgeting needs. Wishing you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2012.
