Top Tech Challenge Comes to Charleston Housing Authority
5/8/2013 2:11:41 PM

Winning Team - Employees of the Charleston Housing Authority’s Central Management Office (AMP 30), team winners of the recent HD Supply Top Tech Challenge

On April 30th, 28 employees of The Housing Authority of the City of Charleston (CHA) participated in the HD Supply “Top Tech Challenge”, a competition designed for maintenance professionals.

The event consisted of five skill-based tasks derived from common maintenance activities involving plumbing, electrical, and structural repair. All tasks were timed and each competitor’s individual times were totaled with those of the other members of his or her team. The Central Management Office (AMP 30) team recorded the lowest cumulative time for all of the tasks and was crowned the champion. 

In addition to the skill tasks, a Pinewood Derby-style race car competition was also held. The cars had to be built to specific length, width, height, and weight requirements, with their construction consisting of no less than three common maintenance supply parts. The winning car, ”Tech 1”, was built by Nathaniel “Tanny” Welch of the Office of Special Housing Needs. 

Since 1974, HD Supply has been a leading supplier of maintenance, repair, and operations products, serving multifamily, hospitality, and commercial properties, as well as healthcare and government facilities. This is the third Top Tech Challenge sponsored by HD Supply.
