You think your construction project is taking a long time? The Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain has been under construction for over 120 years! Surface Protection Expert Heather just returned from a European vacation and noticed that construction and renovation projects there often take decades or even longer to complete. Renovation projects for structures of historical significance such as Il Duomo in Florence, Italy, and Saint Peter's Basilica in Vatican City are constantly being renovated, cleaned, and reinforced. In such projects as these, builders are careful to use surface protection and dust control measures. Surface protection prevents damage to fragile, antiquated buildings and dust control protects interior artwork from being covered in grime. Dust control also prevents the droves of tourists from inhaling potentially toxic dust!
What do you think are some of the biggest differences between construction projects in the USA and in Europe? Feel free to comment!
