Health Care and Medical
Ball Memorial Hospital
$5.8 Million Patient Area Renovation
Quality comes first.
When we learned that even the slightest residue of
the old flooring adhesive would cause the new sheet vinyl to peel
up, we purchased a shot-blasting machine and removed it. The $85,000
cost was not part of our estimate because this adhesive was hidden
when we priced the job.
Citing some technical language, Ball Hospital refused
to reimburse us. In spite of not being able to recoup this enormous
expense, Jungclaus continued to prepare the floors correctly from
start to a proud and problem-free finish and consistent with our
core principle: to deliver lower total project costs.
Footnote: we showed the hospital areas where
contractors had not prepared the floor properly and where the seamless
flooring was already bubbling loose.
