Mr. Z had the opportunity to "test drive" a 25 foot section of the new carpet destined for the acute care patient rooms in the new hospital. First the "abatement" folks had to come, put up plastic sheeting on half of the hallway, chip up the glued down carpet and safely dispose of it. The next day the vendors installed the new carpet. I must say I like it, it has several tones of brown and will hide a multitude of coffee spills. It has already passed the spilled coffee test with flying colors, the liquid beads right up and is apparently easily removed. How 'bout that?
Close up of the carpet pattern, nice.
Then we watched the cement truck dump stuff into the curb former machine and three guys walked it all over the parking lot pooping curbs. They got it all done in about four hours. Very impressive.
Then the paint guy got his quasi golf/paint cart all fired up and striped the parking lot in a couple hours. They have "doctors parking" signs set up near the South end (close to ER) and it
may still be a little crowded and the employees are still going to have to park on the street, but it sure looks purty. I might get to park in the new lot on Sunday.
