Greenfield Shrinkwrap

Did you know it was possible to shrinkwrap an entire building? It can help contain toxic substances like lead paint, keeping the surrounding community safe while a structure is restored. We’re rehabilitating the water tower in Greenfield, CA right now; you can see it here, surrounded by completely shrinkwrapped scaffolding. Our project manager, Doug Pike, tells us, “The old Greenfield water tower, built in 1910, is a landmark and part of this small town’s identity. Because the old coatings contained some lead-based paint, the paint prep work was performed ‘under wraps’ to prevent the chips and debris from drifting off City property.” For more photos, see our Facebook photo album.
