San Diego State University East Commons
The SDSU East Commons Dining utilizes over 35 raised beds in the College Area Community Garden and Hello Walkway Garden to grow and harvest a variety of produce. The East Commons area receives a lot of student traffic and the overall floor needed maintenance.
The Dining Challenge
The floor at East Commons needed uplift and SDSU wanted to find a manufacturer and applicator who could meet their requirements, which included a short installation period of 30-days or less, and to be able to work with an irregular schedule as they would need to stay open during the installation. Westcoat’s qualified applicator/contractor; Life Deck was brought on to assess the floor and to see if the job could be done within SDSU stipulations.
The Solution for SDSU
Life Deck worked closely with the facility personnel to earn their business. They evaluated the floor and came to the conclusion that a Grind and Seal would not be the best option as the under flooring was not in the best shape. They recommended Westcoat’s TC Interior system with different finish options. After a sample was made and approved, the crews got to work immediately after the VCT flooring was removed.
During the rehabilitation of the floor, Life Deck worked with the SDSU crew to accommodate them being open. The crew would run two shifts per day to meet the 30-day deadline. To protect the food court areas, they hung heavy duty plastic, which Life Deck hung every night and then removed each morning before the East Commons opened.
