Featured Testimonial:
“Our new science lab building sits next to our gym, an old airplane hangar moved on-site in 1949.  While building the science building, Trane helped us plan ahead for our next project, which is to refurbish the hangar gym. We installed a large transformer that not only supplies enough electricity to the science lab building, but will also take care of all future needs of the gym.  Looking ahead allowed us to take some actions now that will reduce our costs when we are able to move forward with the gym improvements, enabling us to provide our students with a more comfortable environment years down the road.  It has been a professional honor to have worked with Trane.”
