Industrial Concrete Life Deck Coating Installations Industrial Concrete Surface Technology, Inc. O.T. Neighoff & Sons, Inc. Industrial Concrete Raymond Frater, O.T. Neighoff & Sons 22 MAY 2018 COATINGSPROMAG.COM O.T. Neighoff & Sons, Inc. (OTN) won first place in the Industrial Concrete category for its Medstar Health — Washington Hospital Center project. Despite the client "strongly considering" a terrazzo option, they were convinced that a urethane-based system with a vinyl flake was the right choice. For that 155-day-long project, a few challenges were highlighted. "A strict time line was established for each phase. With other contractors removing the existing floors, OTN had to be prepared for varying substrate conditions. To meet the sched- ule demands created by a busy center, OTN crews worked weekends and night shifts Monday through Wednesday. e typical night shift was from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. at the latest to allow cure time so that the floor could withstand foot and cart traffic at 6:00 a.m. In order for this to happen, it was imperative that the grout coat was completed and cured so that the decorative flake was locked in place." For the Industrial Concrete category, second place was awarded to Life Deck Coating Installations for its Cutwater Spirits project, and third place was awarded to Surface Technology, Inc. for the project called Valicor.
