2,400 Square Feet of gypsum underlayment
Pogue Construction out of McKinney called us because they were working on the Collin County Community College in Frisco and they found a severe “sag” in the middle of the room that was close to 140 feet long and 20 feet wide. This is a common problem that we see in buildings all over Texas and surrounding areas. What we needed to do was to fill in the low spot and feather on all four sides to create smooth transitions.
As we do on all leveling jobs, we set our dowels on a 5 foot grid to be certain that the floor flatness was going to be suitable for the building walls and also installing the finished floor. We were able to take out a considerable low spot which was as much as 2” in some spots and create a surface flat enough upon which walls could be built. We then transitioned the floor to conserve product and offer the most cost effective solution possible. Thank you Pogue for the opportunity to work with you again!
On this project, ACS used a low VOC sealer and manufactured its products on site using local sand and water. Today, these same products contain pre-consumer recycled content and have also achieved GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification. At the time of construction the manufacturer did not have the ‘green’ formulations available but anytime ACS completes a project today, we use the formulation which may contribute toward LEED project certification in several credit areas.
