36 JULY 2015 COATINGSPROMAG.COM Base Camp Te 14-man Brazos crew staged their equipment at base camp, a fenced-of section of parking lot about a block away from the Superdome. But to conquer this 27-story-high dome, Brazos needed another staging area closer to the action. Te crew began by constructing a high altitude storehouse inside the building. "We found an area inside the dome at the highest level of the perimeter wall and built a 20- by 30-foot [6.1 m x 9.1 m] warehouse that butted up against the wall," said Keller. "Next, we located the corresponding area outside, which was in a huge rain gutter, and used Milwaukee reciprocating saws to cut through the wall. We then built a 12- by 12-foot [3.7 m x 3.7 m] To set the crew up for success, Tom Keller, Brazos' project manager, staged the coatings pumps inside a rain gutter that ran along the perimeter of the dome. He also handpicked his 14-person crew. When the coatings crew from Brazos Urethane was called in to do the recoat job on the New Orleans Saints' Superdome, they knew it would be a big one — 450,000 square feet (41,806.4 m²) to be exact!
