Encompass Mechanical is installing four 100% outside air units that will serve common corridors in both of the nine-story resident buildings. In addition, duct cleaning is being provided for the resident exhaust duct risers in the apartments, and existing evaporative condensers in the resident towers are being replaced.

In the two-story commons building, Encompass Mechanical is replacing existing split systems and rooftop package units. The company is also installing two 100% outside air units that will help pressurize the facility. The Pinecrest Retirement Community project is scheduled for October 2002 completion.

Encompass Mechanical Services-Central Florida is part of Encompass Services Corp., which provides mechanical services, electrical technologies, network and energy solutions, and cleaning systems to commercial, industrial, and residential customers nationwide.
