MIKE WINCHELL

General Foreman

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WITH FIRST POINT MECHANICAL AND WHAT IS YOUR ROLE?
I have been with First Point since 2000 and I am a general foreman in charge of one of our bigger accounts

THREE WORDS THAT BEST DESCRIBE YOU:
Busy.  Happy.  Proud.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO RECENT NEW HIRES?
I have worked with Rich Parlier and several others here at First Point for over 25 years - just work hard, be patient and honest, and good things will follow

WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE GROWING UP?
Growing up I always wanted to fly like my Dad.  However I was a more hands-on kid and I was always taking things apart.  I ended up enrolling at College of DuPage for HVAC and here I am

WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT?
My family.  I am very family oriented and can't stand watching my kids growing up

PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED IF THEY KNEW:
I am a big softy when it comes to my kids.  I have a hard time saying no to them 

WHAT IS ON YOUR BUCKET LIST?
Three things: Taking my wife and kids to Hawaii, crossing Lake Michigan on a boat or with a group of waverunners and Vegas!  My wife and I still have never been there

LOYOLA ACADEMY
Wilmette, IL

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.
