  • Specialized 3-coat epoxy wall treatment with integral cove base with unique pattern (Wave)
  • Plumbing disconnects and reconfigure
  • New framing and drywall
  • Painted adjacent surface with marine-grade epoxy paint
  • New door/frame
  • Grinded existing concrete floor and applied epoxy sealer
  • All labor to relocate all exhibits as required


Value:  $35,000
