Like many 2019 jobs, this job had numerous delays to the schedule which compressed durations and made completion for the school year a challenge. The schedule added to the already tough renovation conditions. On this project we had significant floor prep issues in the renovation areas, height differences in joining new vs. old sections of the building and extensive wall repairs where old tile was demo’d. We had to work around the storage of existing school equipment and furniture as we moved through our areas of work. The main issue for this installation was the bulk of the floor was LVT which required extensive prep of the renovation areas which were rough! Schonox played a big part here with SL and US, making it possible to provide a great install of LVT in large areas and classrooms. We had challenges coordinating with the ceiling trades who were working at the same time as One Source (and other finish trades). The school began moving back in while flooring was still being installed, making it even more difficult to proceed and protect finished work. We were pushed hard during the initial Ceramic phases which combined with lots of wall repairs made this a tough job all the way through. We are used to difficult Julys and Augusts and a job of this size is a great example of tough site conditions!
