)-- Representatives of Avesta Communities finished 3rd and 4th overall in an area wide maintenance competition. The competition, hosted by First Coast Apartment Association (FCAA), was held on February 10, 2015. Several of Avesta's maintenance technicians competed in Maintenance Mania, and proved that Avesta's teammates are some of the most talented in the Jacksonville region. Kyle Slagle of Avesta Mandarin won 3rd place overall, and Matt Metz of Avesta Mandarin finished 4th overall. Additionally, Vance Prince of Avesta Mandarin and Sean McMaster of Avesta Park Village placed in individual events.
Maintenance Mania is a nationally recognized maintenance competition. Competitors are scored on how quickly and skillfully they can complete each maintenance-related task. Events include water heater installation, faucet installation, icemaker installation, fire/carbon monoxide safety installation, ceiling fan installation, duo flush toilet conversion, and a model race car competition. In order for the competitors to place in the “overall” category, they must compete in every event. The race car competition is a fan favorite in which the competitors build a race car out of parts found in their maintenance shops. Avesta took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in this event.
Kyle Slagle and Matt Metz will represent Avesta at the State Maintenance Mania and vie for a chance to compete at the National Championship in Las Vegas.
