Project Complete 

Welcome to your project blog! ***Note – we are starting on the 5th floor.

Tuesday, March 3rd: Greetings! 

We wanted to let you know that the crews were wrapping up their ‘blue tape’ marked touch ups today and we are set to call your project complete. We are blown away at the updates the neutral and consistent color palette brings to your hallway and lobby areas. 

Collecting the blue tape and completing our touch ups.

We also wanted to share the color formulas for the walls and wallpaper accents: 

Hallway walls: ProMar 200 in SW 7506 – Loggia, Eggshel finish

Wallpaper insets: ProMar 200 in SW7011 – Natural Choice, Eggshel finish

Monday, February 24th: Good afternoon! 

The crew was back onsite today to continue with their touch ups and cleaning in areas completed. Here are a few photos of the completed lobby area — we think it looks fantastic!

We are loving how much brighter your lobby looks!

Always looking up!

Thursday, February 20th: Good morning! 

We are wrapping up in the entry lobby today with prep and painting of final areas, touch ups, and clean up. 

We’ll also be completing a walk through to identify areas needing attention so please be mindful if you see blue tape around the building. It has been our pleasure sprucing up your hallways and entry lobby and we think it looks so much brighter with this lighter color palette. Thanks!

Friday, February 14th: Hello and happy Friday! 

We’ve got the 3rd week of progress under our belt and the crew is anticipating about 1 more week to wrap up in the 2nd floor hallways and in the entry lobby area. There were some significant wall repairs on the 2nd floor and we are waiting on the go ahead to get to painting those areas. While we are not working up on the 5th, 4th, and 3rd floors – we will be doing our walk throughs and marking tape for areas needing attention. So please know we are 100% complete. Thanks!

Monday, January 27th: Good afternoon and happy project start day! 

We’d be kidding ourselves if the news of Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and seven other passengers’ deaths were not affecting us – great or small, we are all impacted by those around us and it’s clear that we can touch those we do not even know. We are all counting our blessings, squeezing our loved ones a little tighter, and wishing the families of those lost comfort and peace. 

The crew is starting on the 5th floor at Greenbrier will prep work, removing wallpaper and completing wall repairs. 

This will look like lots of plastic and paper on the floors, taping off edges, using a solution to remove the wallpaper residue, and scraping off any remains. 

We appreciate your cooperation as we are taking over your hallway for a bit – thank you!

Down the hallway we go!
