Orlando’s Women’s Residential & Counseling Center (WRCC) transforms the lives of homeless and battered women and children. The facility’s HVAC systems were failing and an upgraded air conditioning and water heating system was desperately needed to improve comfort and to reduce operating costs at the facility.

RTM joined forces with The American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air–Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) on this important project that was showcased as the national ASHRAE sustainability project during the AHR Expo in Orlando.

RTM committed to design and administer this project as a 100% donated service. The coalition relied on community and local business support to complete the upgrades. Thank you to everyone who donated!
