Exterior commercial work is sometimes a challenge because of the traffic flow (customers) and not necessarily the task at hand.
We were recently asked to repaint the exterior of a chain of several grocery stores. The toughest part was the height of what needed to be painted. There was a lot of traffic going in and out as well. It was high work but we planned on using a man lift so the height was not an issue but the constant flow of people was a concern.
Often when a business has customers that are in proximity to the work, extra measures are needed to protect them and us. It is sometimes amazing that we can put barriers up and people will step right over them.
Vehicle traffic is also something we take into consideration. Unfortunately the wind and October/November temperatures were a concern. Each job was only a couple days work but the locations were all over town. We were in Omaha, Plattsmouth, Lincoln and Grand Island.
The reason we were painting The various sections of these stores was because they were rebranding the dining part of the grocery store from Market Grill to Waldburgers.
I was a fan of the Market Grill. They had great hamburgers. I look forward to trying the Waldburger addition. I have heard good things about the restaurant.
