On the 26th of October, the Fredon Air ACT division attended the Air Conditioning & Mechanical Contractors’ Association (AMCA) Annual Gala Dinner and Industry Achievement Awards. The gala was to recognise and celebrate the achievements of the industries’ young talented engineers and apprentices as well as raise funds for OzHelp and to support their mission to provide mental health services for those in the industry.
Fredon is proud to announce we had two winners that evening, in the categories of Apprentice of the Year and Engineer of the Year and another two finalists.
Lucas Chadd was this year’s AMCA Apprentice of the Year.
Lucas joined Fredon Air ACT in 2017 as a service HVAC technician. He began his Electrical apprenticeship in 2018, developing his skills in Fredon Air Service and Client Service divisions as well as few small projects in Fredon Industries. Lucas is continuing to utilising both his HVAC and Electrical skills as part of the Fredon Air ACT service team.
Ben Andreatta won AMCA ACT Engineer of the Year.
Ben is a Mechanical Engineer who is currently working Department of Industry’s office building. From mid-2017 to early 2019, he worked on the design and drafting for Australian National University’s Union Court. His work on this project contributed to his success in winning this year’s award.
We also congratulate our finalists – Rowan Bailey, who was nominated as Apprentice of the Year and, Mark Turner, who was a runner up as Engineer of the Year.
Fredon Air’s Group Managing Director, Richard Drigo, applauded the group for their accomplishments:
