Assemble Maintenance Mania 2016

Maintenance Mania 2016 took place this week and it was another terrific event, and F&C represented well with our Thor-themed t-shirts!

The question was simple: who was worthy to wield the hammer of Thor and take on all comers at Maintenance Mania? Who was ready to assemble?

How it Works: Attendees compete in seven skill-based timed events and a racecar competition where the each participant makes a pinewood derby car out of maintenance materials. These table games are built around common maintenance activities. The following timed events are standard for all Maintenance Mania programs:

  • AO Smith Water Heater Installation
  • CFG Faucet Repair
  • Fluidmaster Toilet Repair
  • Frigidaire Icemaker Installation
  • Kidde Fire & Carbon Monoxide Safety Installation
  • Kwikset Key Control Deadbolt Test
  • Motorola Race Car Competition
  • Seasons Ceiling Fan Assembly

The two top individuals from each region will be eligible to go to the National Apartment Association Annual Conference in San Francisco this summer.

Well, Flaherty & Collins Properties answered that call and had the strength of many Thors!

The F&C team was in full force to cheer on our Maintenance Team – and won the Spirit Award! Our own Gavin Greene brought his snare drum.


All the cheering led to a 1st place finish in the Ice Maker Installation competition! Congratulations Paul Palacios!
