Weekend Work

by @ 8:20 am. Filed under Registry Ops

This weekend’s work went well… Aulson Company removed the carpet and tile from the old recording counter floor. They started Friday night at 6:00PM and didn’t stop untill close to 2:00AM Saturday morning. The Aulson crew returned to the registry on Saturday morning around 11:00AM and finished up around 4:00PM. The work actually went a little faster than expected. Originally, the removal schedule included Sunday as well. Register Howe and I came in Saturday to observe the work and make sure there was nothing Aulson needed. I was amazed that workers moved the old Recording Counter (all 30 feet of it) from its original location into the hallway “completely intact”. Eight men lifted the unit and carried it about ten feet. When I saw the counter Sunday morning it was back in its original location with no visible signs of damage…but, unfortunately, the newly exposed terrazzo floor is in worse condition than I expected (although, I must admit, I was warned…you never know what might be under the carpet). The floor has many hairline cracks and in some areas it appears the mosaic tile was removed and replaced with plain terrazzo. I think/hope that stripping and waxing will bring it back. For now, our summer interns will work in the old recording area…eventually we plan to move Customer Service there.
