Back in March, when Spring Break was the main concern on most school agendas, Lucas Commercial Flooring was approached by Oakhill Day School about a project they wanted to complete to make their school a more secure facility. Their goal was to create a new welcoming space to allow visitors to enter the school in a more secure fashion. Although security was the top priority, it also opened an avenue to update what their visitors see when they enter the school and create the future look for the Elementary School.

OHDS was working with an Architect and General Contractor on their building renovations but had not selected finishes. Their priorities on the project included:
Lucas Commercial Flooring Group provided a detailed proposal that included Good, Better, and Best pricing options that detailed advantages of the selected materaials, color palette examples for each option, and realistic expectations for each pricing option in regard to life span and budget. This allowed the school to evaluate the best values available for different budgets.
After settling on the right option for the project, the final selection process started for Oakhill Day School. During a new uncertain time, where we were all working, learning, and meeting from home, we navigated the new waters of emailed renderings, direct shipped samples, phone/ video communication, and some socially distanced meetings.
We worked together to discuss the details and make sure everything would work well together and not limit their options for future renovations throughout the school. At the end of the day, Oakhill Day School selected some beautiful flooring products that will welcome visitors, staff, and students with a pop of color and interest!
