Mark helps clients analyze, evaluate, design, and implement energy management and other HVAC systems retrofit solutions engineered for optimum performance and long-range value. After gaining an understanding of a client’s wants and needs, he identifies options and recommends innovative ways to improve building energy efficiency and increase energy savings. Mark's role as an account manager is to support the Service and Construction divisions through his extensive knowledge of air side systems and components.
He works extensively with many of our customers in design and installation of these commercial energy systems and often times will find a more cost effective method of solving issues related to air handling and distribution. Mark also supports the commercial heating and cooling service technicians with estimating for replacements and repairs found during routine service calls. Though heavily involved in air side systems, Mark possesses extensive knowledge of refrigeration, hydronic and fire protection systems, and is a valuable resource on all of our projects involving these mechanical systems and their repair or replacement.
After completion of an AAS degree in Fire Protection Technology from Monroe Community College, Mark worked for four years at the University of Rochester in the Environmental Health and Safety office as a fire inspector. As part of this work, Mark was assigned the duty of overseeing many construction jobs to make sure that all health and safety codes were adhered to and followed during construction and renovation.
After serving a four-year apprenticeship for the Sheet Metal Workers International Association, Mark continued his education through additional courses of study including Indoor Air Quality, Testing and Balancing, Refrigeration Fundamentals, and Hydronics. After working in the field as an installation tech, Mark took over the position of Sheet Metal Superintendent in 1999 and served in that capacity up until June of 2009 when he was moved into the Account Manager position.
Mark was awarded EMCOR's Diamond Award in 2007 for his many years of community service to the Point Pleasant Volunteer Fire Department, and continues to hold the position of Fire Fighter for his local fire department.
