If you’ve ever tackled an outdoor painting project, you understand some of the challenges facing the crew that painted the helipad at Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park.
Hirshfield’s Rust-Oleum representative Paul Kiminski and Lindee Construction dealt with the uncertainty of Minnesota weather along with the unique circumstances surrounding a hospital helipad.
According to Kiminski, the challenges included:
- Working around the constant threat of rain.
- Closing down the Emergency Room and diverting helicopters to other hospitals.
- Shot blasting off the existing coating.
- Detailing and taping off all the different lines and graphics.
