State Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) today announced the release of $49,950 for the University of Toledo to contract with Design Engineers & Consulting Associates, Inc. (DECA, Inc.) of Maumee to upgrade and improve multiple electrical and HVAC mechanical systems in eight academic buildings.

“I am pleased to see the state choose Maumee’s own DECA, Inc. to carry out this project for its innovative engineering expertise and project success rate,” said Sheehy.  “Poor air quality and continued disruptions due to necessary maintenance work can negatively impact a student’s ability to learn. This project will ensure that students are educated in quality, comfortable facilities suited for 21st-century mechanics and technology.”

The state-approved project will address outdated mechanical systems in four buildings on the University’s Main Campus and four buildings on the Health Science Campus ranging from 30-50 years old. DECA, Inc. will repair and/or replace the existing air handling units, exhaust fans, insulation and water system valves to reduce maintenance, improve indoor air quality and minimize utility use by improving overall campus utility efficiency.

For over twenty years, DECA, Inc. has provided quality, value and creative solutions for various mechanical and electrical projects. The local Ohio firm was competitively chosen to perform these repairs based on their overall qualifications, previous relevant experience, as well as proposed project team.
