Fletcher Lounge
Fletcher Lounge is one of the most significant historical buildings in Tampa. While completing the restoration of the building, Specialized completely removed all paint from the domed ceiling, cornice and 360 degree mural, removed paint to uncover original stencils and painted it the original colors from 1891. We also made flowerette light collars, restored murals, and performed gilding and stencils in high areas. All the work, including massive scaffold rigging, was completed in 120 calendar days.

H.B. Plant Museum
In 1987, SPECIALIZED donated labor and materials to paint a room in the museum. Since the museum was originally painted in 1891, the paint was decaying and releasing from the walls and ceiling, taking subsequent layers of paint with it. SPECIALIZED told the museum we would be happy to donate this room only if we were allowed to remove all the paint from the walls and ceilings prior to painting. This presented a problem because removing the paint made the project a 2-week process instead of a 2-day process. SPECIALIZED worked day and night to complete the room in time for their exhibit. The room SPECIALIZED donated was the first room that did not have paint peeling from the walls and ceiling within six months after it was painted. It has been over 25 years and the paint on those walls still has not peeled. Soon after doing that room, SPECIALIZED began restoring other rooms, one or two at a time as the museum’s budget allowed. To date SPECIALIZED has restored all the rooms in the museum using original period colors used in 1891. Every project was completed within budget and under very tight time constraints.

H.B. Plant Hall 
SPECIALIZED performed the preparation and painting of exterior wood, iron and concrete surfaces of the 110-year-old building. The project consisted of the complete restoration of the 1891 main campus building which included the Plant Museum, the Dean of the Schools office, administrative offices and several meeting halls. The work included restoration of plaster, stencils, faux, and murals as well as restoring original finishes in the museum.

Universities and Educational Facilities
SPECIALIZED is attentive to the specific concerns of public and private institutional facilities. Student and faculty safety and security cannot be compromised during the course of exterior waterproofing and/or parking deck restoration projects. Our technicians make the extra effort to communicate with students and administrators, both at the onset of the project and as the project progresses from one area to the next, in the event greater security and/or sensitivity must be maintained. SPECIALIZED’S superintendents and management keep in constant contact with administrators to reach the mutual goal of completing the exterior service with as little disturbance as possible. SPECIALIZED understands the challenges of working in and around college campuses and other educational facilities. Our crews are trained on the importance of being sensitive to the needs of students and faculty while completing projects at these higher learning facilities. The SPECIALIZED management team understands faculty and students have limited time, and perform building restoration and/or waterproofing services with as little disruption as possible. Our habit of maintaining open communication with facility managers and engineers guarantees students, faculty, and the SPECIALIZED contractors peacefully coexist with no conflict. SPECIALIZED reputation was built on time sensitive projects, such as semester and summer breaks.  You can be confident that the SPECIALIZED Performance Driven 24-7 Team will get your job done!
