We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to all our amazing employees and their families who joined us for the Annual Hottel Picnic last weekend. It was an absolute blast filled with delicious food, exciting games, fun activities, and awesome prizes!

We had some incredible highlights too:

📺 Cathy Turner hit the jackpot and walked away with a brand new 55" TV!
🌞 Sam Nagel and Alberto Monterrosa scored big with a set of beach chairs and an umbrella each, perfect for those sunny days!
👦👧 And let's not forget the kids – many of them were lucky winners too!

The dizzy bat relay race made a triumphant return, and it was an absolute hit!

Huge congratulations to this year's champions:
🏆 Matt Carpenter
🏆 Jose Figueroa
🏆 Zach Parker
🏆 Brady Rice

The winners of the tug-o-war was the Plumbing Department, who defeated Management! Congratulations to everyone on an incredible effort!

Although Jimmy Hill, Mechanical Services Manager (right), may try to look intimidating, he nominated Matt Carpenter, Foreman (left), for this well-deserved recognition of the Q4 Epic Award winner. Matt's journey from a newcomer to a highly skilled Job Foreman in such a short span is truly remarkable. His exceptional coordination, communication, and organizational abilities make him a standout choice. Matt's invaluable contributions benefit both Mechanical and Harvey Hottel. Notably, he has played a crucial role in projects, overseeing equipment installation, piping, and subcontractor management, all while utilizing our Pro Core system.

On Saturday, we performed a crane lift to get four BARD units onto the roof of a 12-story building. The lift was performed on a Saturday to minimize any delays or disturbances for the employees of the building. Extreme Steel was able to assist in providing a large enough crane to reach the rear of the roof where the units needed to be set. As well as, safely shut down the road and sidewalk for the lift’s duration. Everything went according to plan and the units were successfully mounted.

Our Commerical Service Projects Department replaced a 10-ton roof top unit for our clients in Laurel, MD. The previous unit was dated and not running as efficiently as new systems do. A new curb adapter was needed for the design, along with new gas piping and condensate lines that were fabricated and installed to connect with the existing layout. Newer units are more energy efficient, so our electrician ran new power from the main panel to the new unit to meet the proper voltage and amperage requirements. This included a new disconnect switch too. Cristian Gomez and Jose Aparicio were the Technicians on site and did a great job! Another successful replacement!

We are happy to have him part of the Hottel team!

Terry Lewis has shown his ability to plan and think creatively to make jobs run smoothly. MPD Training Academy Gym Unit replacements were supposed to be replaced at the end of 2022, but due to some permitting issues it was delayed. Once that was resolved, Terry was able to plan and quickly have these systems swapped out. Due to their location and access, it required careful planning to make rigging and setting the equipment possible.

In a nutshell, she keeps all of the sales guys in line with their leads and tracking of the quotes pending.

This particular job was a quick turnaround! We had JP Long, Jose Aparicio and Jose Quintanilla on the jobsite to ensure we were set up prior to the crane’s arrival. The existing 4ton rooftop unit was completely down, and the customer had no cooling. Fortunately, the replacement unit was in stock, so there was minimal downtime. Within hours of starting the job, the guys were able to have the unit set and started up!

We recently had our 4th unit replacement at Tikvat Israel Congregation with resounding success. Our technicians, Henry Sorto and Jorge Gonzalez, Commercial Service Projects Department, operated with expert precision and efficiency. We were able to complete the crane lift before the school doors open at 9am, so there was no disruption or down time. This 3-ton replacement will assist in helping Tikvat better serve their congregants and other guests and get them closer to having a more efficient mechanical system as a whole.

Our Story

A family owned and operated company founded in 1945, focused on Mechanical services and specializing in Heating and Air Conditioning. When the company was founded, Harvey W. Hottel, Inc. began by designing and installing commercial heating and air conditioning systems for the government along with industrial facilities. As the popularity of air conditioning and the business grew, the company added a service repair division to maintain the air conditioning equipment that was being placed into operation. Over the last 65 years, the technologies may have changed and our company may have grown to be one of the largest commercial multi-discipline service, design and installation companies in the Mid-Atlantic but our values have remained the same

DAY 5!! Safety Toolbox Talk Topic:

Working safely does not end today but continues every day in our professional and personal lives. We all must support each other and agree to speak up when something doesn’t look right, or there is a safer way to perform a task. Let’s talk about a few things we can all do to make us safer:

Have a Plan:
Assess each task and develop a plan before starting to identify, eliminate, and control potential hazards. Each operation performed must have a plan and the necessary material, equipment, and proper controls. Make sure to review and understand the plan before starting work. If the plan has changed or new hazards are identified, stop work and update the plan. Additionally, ensure all proper PPE has been supplied and is properly worn.

Inspect the Area, Tools, and Equipment:
Before starting a new task, take a few minutes to perform a safety inspection of the job site, equipment, and tools. Any safety hazard found must be corrected before beginning the operation. If you are going to use equipment, you must be trained, authorized, and perform an inspection of the equipment before use. Contact your foreman before starting work if you need training, are unfamiliar or are uncomfortable performing a task.

Take Safety Home:
Being safe in your personal life is just as important as being safe at work. We must remain vigilant for hazards that we encounter daily. When was the last time you did a safety audit of your home to ensure the smoke detectors have new batteries? Inspected the fire extinguisher in your home (if you have one)? Replenished your first aid kit or took a CPR and first aid class?

**Hottel Technicians - Keep an eye out for the final contest email on Monday! Winner will receive a $100 gift card and a Kask Hard Hat Helmet with Visor.

Congratulations to Josh Lindauere and Douglas Ciciliano of Custom Homes Division. They are day two and three Toolbox Challenge winners. Thank you to everyone who have participated so far. Working safe and being a part of the Harvey Hottel team is rewarding! Remember to read and view today's toolbox and answer the challenge tomorrow morning at 8am!

*For Hottel Employees - Dan will also be sending out info on the Safety Week 2022 closeout contest. Look for it later today. Don't miss out!

Our Plumbing Division received high praise from our client at UM Urgent Care! See what they had to say:

"I just wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation for your continued teamwork and OUTSTANDING service/workmanship. I know when Harvey W. Hottel, Inc. is on one of our jobsites your team will shine bright and do whatever it takes to get the job done. You are, and have always been, a trusted partner to Marand Builders. Know that I so appreciate each of you. I look forward to many (many) more years of working together!"
- Carrie Woodward, Marand Builders
It's Thursday! And we are on Day 4 of our Safety Toolbox Talk, todays topic is:

Over the past few days, we have talked about being supportive & using communication to keep ourselves and our co-workers safe. Often we are on a job site and see someone working unsafe or see a hazard that we don't report because we don't feel like we should get involved. Sometimes we even feel rushed or unsupported so we cut a corner and take a risk because we just want to get the job completed faster or go home sooner. When it comes to safety in construction, “if you see something, say something” should be a rule of thumb for all workers, supervisors, visitors, and anyone who steps foot on a construction site. All workers should feel comfortable enough to speak up about safety violations they think may be occurring. If you see something that seems wrong, report it to your supervisor. When you report something that seems suspicious in the office or worksite you could potentially save a life. An informed and alert team plays a critical role in keeping the workplace safe. Safety is 100% teamwork. Take a look at the following video to find out how a USRT (Unsafe Risk Taker) affects the job site and morale. Don't be a USRT!

Today we hosted lunch at Mechanical group's Holy Cross Academy jobsite. We had some amazing pizza from Armand's Pizzeria. We also presented Ralph Murphy with the final 2022 Safety Award. Ralph had completed his OSHA 10, OSHA 30, and First Aid CPR on his own before Hottel began offering classes. Thank you Ralph for gaining the knowledge to keep yourself and others safe.

Don't forget we have two more days of Construction Safety Week to include more prizes and games. Daily Safety Week Toolbox talk will be sent out at 6am with a contest question sent out at 8am. On the conclusion of Safety Week, we will have one last contest. Stay tuned for more information and updates! Its a good one...

DAY 3 SAFETY TOPIC:

Safety is and always must remain a top value. Safety Week is the time to fill our safety “gas tanks” to last us the other 51 weeks of the year by giving us tools and new perspectives on safety while also retaining safety fundamentals. The fundamentals of safety are often a company’s cardinal rules, which are policies that would most likely result in death or serious physical harm if violated. Each of us has a duty to ourselves and our coworkers to be constantly aware of potentially hazardous conditions. Policies surrounding PPE, fall protection, confined space, and more are what keep us all safe and are the building blocks of a strong safety culture.

Hazard Recognition:
To construct the safety plan, we must recognize the hazards. Don’t wait for an incident to happen before you develop a good attitude towards safety. Like many personal attributes, it is easier to judge a safety attitude in others than in oneself. Focus on “state of mind/attitude” (rushing, frustration, fatigue, and complacency) either before or during a task. We all see errors that occur each day; we are human. When you find yourself in this state of mind, take action to prevent an error by:
● Self-Trigger – Recognize the state of mind that you are in and do something before you make a mistake.
● Analyze close calls/near misses.
● Look for patterns that increase the risk of injury with everyone around you.

Understand the Safety Plan:
While the contents of the safety plan will change from company to company and even from task to task, take the time to educate yourself to ensure you know the minimum requirements for each job before you start to stay safe. Some policies are in place due to lessons learned and may be modified from time to time. If an item is not well defined, take the time to ask your supervisor for clarification. Safety policies do not end with the job’s daily activities. Proper PPE is key to staying safe. Although it is the last line of defense, we must all remain committed to safety by supplying our crews with the equipment and gear that will keep them safe each day.

Be Willing to Ask for Help:
Sometimes to stay safe, we must accept that we can’t do a particular job by ourselves. Material handling and confined space entries are two instances where teamwork is necessary. We must rely on coworkers to “give us a hand” in times like these. Accidents are more likely to occur if we are reluctant to ask someone to assist with certain tasks. We all need help occasionally, so being too shy, too macho, or too experienced to ask for help isn’t worth an injury. After all, wouldn’t you be happy to give someone else a minute or two of your time to prevent an incident from occurring.

Appreciate Teamwork:
It takes everyone working together cooperatively in the workplace to stay safe. You can do a lot to maintain your safety, but you can’t be totally safe all by yourself. Safety is a team effort. Teamwork means taking the time to teach someone else a safer way to do the job or correct a condition you think might be a hazard. Cooperation of this sort is necessary to stay safe both in the workplace and in our everyday lives. The essence of staying safe is realizing that we are too valuable to leave our well-being to chance. We want to take care of ourselves and our teammates by performing our jobs safely. Whatever your job title is, stay committed to the safety fundamentals by preventing accidents through education, safe work practices, and teamwork.
