Painting time!

With the drywall crews almost finished, HVAC flipped around and access to electricity, it was now time for surface prep and paint.

The unit used to be a fabrication shop and was covered with a couple decades worth of welding dust. After vacuuming, dusting the ceiling and the beams, we sanded them and cleaned them again.

We were then ready to start painting. First coat. Then second coat. Then third coat…

That included the big I-Beams, the ceiling, walls, new drywall, offices, bathrooms, kitchen, hallways. The combination of rolling/brushing and spraying kept us busy for a long time, but it finally started to look like a real training centre.
