"M" for Expect More
Several factors made this an interesting challenge:
1. The paint used had to work in conjunction with the roofing system;
2. The paint colors had to match the emblem perfectly;
3. The emblem had to be centered on the roof, which was over a drain and vent stack;
4. The crew had a very small window of time to paint the emblem before the grand opening.
Working on Chamberlin's CAD System, Office Engineer, Eileen Steinbach, designed the plans and personally joined the crew to paint the emblem on the roof. "We went through several ideas with the owner. Among other things, we looked at colored roof pavers to create the logo. Ultimately, it was determined a tinted roof coating would be the best application," said Steinbach.
"It will be seen by every Mosaic resident in the towers on either side of this roof area, so it had to be perfect," Steinbach continued, "Paint seemed to be the medium that would allow us the freedom to create the logo with the most accuracy."
Steinbach along with Senior Project Manager Bill Lawson and Assistant Project Manager Marty Hensley, went above and beyond their normal call of duty. "This is the first time that we have been asked to perform a task of this nature," said Lawson, "it was challenging, but we were able to deliver exactly what the client expected."
