Ocean Four Condominium, Daytona
Provided facility assessment for the 20-story 114-unit building located at Daytona Beach. The assessment was provided to resolve the following issues:

    1. The hallway on the first floor was experiencing thermal comfort issues, as unconditioned air was being drawn into the hallway from adjacent parking garage.
    2. The parking garage was under ventilated.
    3. Warm humid air was being drawn into the elevators making them uncomfortable to ride in.
    4. There were indoor air quality issues associated with the lobby on the first floor.

Piping Renovation at Windjammer Condominiums, St Augustine
The facility was experiencing water leakages under the slabs in the parking area. The purpose of the project was to provide a design solution to route the main pipe from the pump room, bypass the pipes under the slabs, and suspend a new main pipe from the concrete ceiling in the garage. All existing branch lines serving the condominium were reconnected to the new pipe.
