T hat was a huge asset during the few months when the entire garage had to be shut dow n to finish work on the lower levels. It pays to be the city's garage experts! Once all of the decks were done and the vertical and overhead areas were covered, they could call it a day. According to Bouckaert, the main goal of the new building owner, TAB Properties, was "to have the garage operational to keep revenue coming in…to keep recouping on his investment as soon as possible." But McGill Restoration also had to do all that was necessary to repair the structure correctly. "I know our foreman on the job, Ron Stricklett, was there from day one and was probably the last one to walk off the job," Cielocha said. "He brought this project in on the timeframe and on budget." In the end, McGill Restoration installed more than 400,000 square feet (37,161.2 m²) of coatings on more than 12,000 square feet (1,114.8 m²) of horizontal repairs and more than 3,000 square feet (278.7 m²) of vertical and And as it got colder, the crew moved downward to lower levels — sometimes on different levels concurrently.Work required coordination not only as a team but also with the faculity and nearby garages. overhead repairs.
