- Finishing works with resin coatings (walls and ceilings) of service facilities and laboratory and office floorings.
- Varnishing of iron works (mezzanines and laboratory stairway blocks) with synthetic enamels.
- Decoration works to create company logo.
REQUIREMENT – condition of the building:
The client presented us with a renovation and upgrading project of the 3rd lot of the building in line with the previously completed works for lots 1 and 2, with the purpose of making new environments accessible.
This work plan was shown to us by means of a pre-established specification drawn up in accordance with the restoration previously carried out on lots 1 and 2 of the building.
The building had different empty environments with supporting structures – iron girders and columns – in iron deteriorated over time and exposed brick walls requiring coverage in plasterboard to create new environments for us to work on.
In line with the tender specification, we followed the directives listed for works of varnishing and painting, proposing finishing works in resin for some environments in progress.
