Maintenance Practices At The Bethel Church & Ministries Congregation

Bethel is a multi-campus congregation located in Northwest Indiana. Currently, Bethel has two campuses with 27,000 sq ft and 70,000 sq ft of buildings made up of classrooms, auditoriums, offices, outbuildings, storage spaces and the Churches. Anthony Rettig is the Buildings and Grounds coordinator and together with his team of five, they manage the maintenance on buildings, churches, HVAC systems, equipment and grounds at the two campuses. We could be doing anything from “servicing the ice maker to trimming a tree”, says Anthony. According to Anthony, in the past he used a combination of different systems to track everything maintenance related - Outlook tasks, internal intranet, work requests via email, phone calls, text messages, verbal, paper and pencil, and Excel to track business contacts. When you have a large facility, with 50 staff members, keeping track of all the work requests and PM’s can been a nightmare.

Implementing MA CMMS at the Legendary Luna Park

Luna Park was a legendary amusement park of the early 20th century at Coney Island, NY. When the original Luna Park opened in 1903, visitors entered through a large archway to walls with 250,000 lights and canal full of gondolas like Venice, Italy. Revolutionary for its time, the main attraction was called “Trip to the Moon”, where visitors were transported on an imaginary flight on an enormous spaceship with flapping wings. The park drew people in the millions, including notables such as Thomas Edison and William McKinley, the US President at the time. Sadly, the original park burned down in 1944 and was not rebuilt due to a shortage of building materials during World War II.
