Keeping it level
One of the most important steps in flooring installation is making sure the surface is flat and level. This process is called, "Floating the Floor." A worker is floating the north end of the hallway prior to instillation of the flooring.
All the rooms in Building 2000 will be getting new carpet. This is the last major install. In the next two weeks whiteboard and tag board installs will be the final room renovations.
A fresh coat of paint makes everything look new again. Exterior painting should be finished next week. This is a good sign that we are nearing the end of the finish work.
