DON KENAH

Sales Engineer

WHAT ASPECT OF YOUR ROLE DO YOU ENJOY THE MOST?
I really enjoy the new customer acquisition process.  From finding someone who has never worked with us in the past, finding an area they want to improve, putting together and presenting a solution and finally winning and keeping their business

THREE WORDS THAT BEST DESCRIBE YOU:
Hard worker.  Dedicated.  Competitive.

WHAT IS ONE CAREER LESSON YOU HAVE LEARNED THUS FAR?
To make your own luck - the harder I work the luckier I seem to get.  I have always believed that outworking the competition is the way to get and stay ahead

WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE GROWING UP?
A Rodeo clown

IF YOU COULD DO ANOTHER JOB FOR JUST ONE DAY, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Caddy for Phil Mickelson, Sunday "Father's Day" of the U.S. Open.  He is down 5 points and he comes back to win in dramatic fashion to claim his first U.S. Open.

PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED IF THEY KNEW:
I'm actually a pretty organized person - if you walk by my office and looked at my desk, you would probably think otherwise 

WHAT IS ON YOUR BUCKET LIST?
Two trips - #1 return to Ireland with me and my wife.    #2 - trip  to Croatia to see where my Mother's side of the family came from.  I remember my great grandmother telling me stories of the town she grew up in and I would like to see it for myself

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Reduce energy costs, enhance comfort controls and reduce equipment footprint

THE CHALLENGE
With only two existing thermostats for over 14 classrooms and offices, Loyola Academy was looking for a better way to control the temperature in each classroom and office.  Being located in the basement, the new system also had to be able to dehumidify to maximize its' occupants comfort. 

THE SOLUTION
With limited space above the ceilings, Loyola Academy and First Point's engineers worked together to find a system that would meet both the space limitations and provide additional comfort controls to the teaching staff. 

THE RESULT
First Point Mechanical designed and installed the Mitsubishi VRF system that provides each classroom and office simultaneous heating and cooling .  This project turned two thermostats into 14 individual controlled zones!  This project also freed up mechanical room space and allowed the building to utilize this additional space for storage and classroom use.
