We have submitted a bid for a pretty big and interesting job to clean which is in essence a really big green house, called the Biosphere 2.
To get an idea of what it looks like, here is an image:
We are only bidding the 2 pyramids and the connecting corridor at this time.
So it is definitely a job that interests me and since it has been neglected for so long, it will need lots of extra work. Lots. But that’s not the point I want to address here.
I know that we can clean it effectively with water fed poles, power washers, and chemicals. I went to make sure that I had my insurance company’s blessing, and I was appalled at their confusion, even blank stares when I asked to make sure we were good. The building is 91 feet tall at it’s highest point. They threw around numbers like $20k+ to do a job like that, which I find absolutely hilarious. But they assured me that they’d do some extra legwork to really research it. [B]They don’t know anything was my take away.[/B]
If you care to learn a little about how we plan to tackle this beast, I slapped a page together so you can get an idea of how we are going to approach it:
So my question is, Do any of you have suggestions on insurance companies who are great to work with and can give me an estimate for moving into this kind of work? We will be doing the job twice a year after the initial restoration, but usually we will be doing 3 stories or less. You know, height really shouldn’t be a factor for as much time as we spend with our feet flat on the ground with a WFP, you know?
