Hosting Paul Marcaccio’s Visit

Paul had a narrow window to fly into San Jose for a quick site visit.  He did.

Catching Up with Paul

Since Jo-Anne, Nik, Kate and Lucky (the puppy) were in Kelowna, Bryan was extremely flexible and could host Paul’s visit and meet whatever timing was required.  Due to a number of issues, Paul caught a flight from Toronto to SFO, arriving on Saturday evening.

After a well-coordinated pick up at SFO, Paul and Bryan caught up over dinner in Los Gatos.

The plan for today was to do some measurements with Bryan’s new laser level.  With the concrete floor, two bridges, stairs, etc., establishing the elevation for the finished floor is critical.  Based on the advice from the general contractor that installed a GlassWalk bridge in Atherton, we invested in a top-of-the-line laser level.  Now, it was time to learn how to use it.

On Site

Paul and Bryan spent several hours on Sunday using the laser level and measuring elevations.  However, they were somewhat stumped on how to rotate the laser to show a straight line on the concrete.  And, technical support was not available on Sunday. 

After a light meal, Bryan drove Paul back to SFO so he could catch the red-eye to Toronto.

As always, a great visit with Paul.
