    It's more like an enclosed roof cavity, but pretty much where the attic would be if there was one.

    Is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

    A positive attidude will not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worthwhile.

    Hmphhhhh its most likely that too much hot air is getting trapped in there and causing the units to mess up. They should open that up so it can get air.

    Tell the engineer he needs a bigger rooftop on the outside of that building to keep the rooftop inside the building cool.

    Precisely why it's on the wall of shame.

    I have seen that done with a old package york heatpump with a drain pan built under it for winter defrost water . It was installed for close to 25 years and worked but was a pain to work on . I eventually yanked it out and installed a split . And it was at a school office .
