With holiday shutdown around the corner, it’s important to evaluate the condition of your flooring system. After all, you walk, drive, manufacture, prototype, package, ship, repair, store and have meetings on this floor. That’s why you cannot afford to negate it during this time.

Each area of your production facility can have special requirements. It just depends on your business objective and your floor’s role. Here are some example business objectives:

holiday shutdown and business objectives

Since there are many factors that go into a flooring system, we want to make sure you’re prepared by going through each of them within the various phases of your renovation project. We’ll go through your chemical storage, boundary markings, frequently cleaned areas, ESD issues and more. And since there are many phases within a project, we want to help you manage them and avoid any unnecessary strain on your facility. We’ll break it down by going through the following project phases with you:

  • Manufacturer’s Consultation
  • Floor System Specification
  • Labor and Materials Proposal
  • Proposal Review
  • Scheduling
  • Installation
  • Punch-list and Close-out
  • Warranty

We’ll also match you up with an experienced industrial flooring contractor to assess all your spaces of your industrial facility. Not only will this contractor listen to your wants, but the company will help you to determine those areas that really need attention.

Most importantly, we’ll work with you to establish a schedule so that each phase within the project gets completed in time. We’ll help handle those minute-by-minute details by making sure materials are onsite, installation is in progress and deadlines are being met.

A holiday shutdown can be a very complex process, and it’s something that you’ll need help completing. It relies heavily on the efforts of good engineering, maintenance, purchasing and more. A tight execution of all the tasks will bring your facility great success once the flooring is properly installed to meet and exceed expectations.
