This project involved asbestos abatement at the floor and ceilings of the corridors. This scope required the replacement of all finishes in these spaces.

Rather than just replace the materials “in-kind” Teitsch-Kent-Fay developed a floor layout that increases the amount of color, provides greater interest, and adds to the overall lightness of the space.

Special detailing at the ceilings increases the light levels in the corridor, creating a greater sense of volume, and accommodating existing utilities that cross the ceiling space.
