Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind (CSDB), Colorado Springs

An Affordable Alternative to Outdated and Problematic Campus Showers and Bathroom Floors

The Problem

The Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind was established in 1874 consisting of 14 different buildings, in which epoxy bathroom floors experienced drainage issues and terrazzo shower pans were dirty and difficult to clean.

The Miracle Method Solution

Miracle Method demonstrated countertop refinishing in one of the dorm’s common area at CSDB. As the facilities maintenance director was looking to prioritize projects, he turned to Miracle Method for an affordable renovation solution that could deliver fast results. Technicians were also required to pass a background check before working on school property. Miracle Method repaired and restored four bathrooms, three terrazzo shower pans and 252 sq. ft. of bathroom floors in four different units.

The Process

The school’s renovation schedule required a quick turnover to accommodate students who were returning from spring break. Technicians stripped off the old epoxy floor to create proper drainage in the showers. Bathroom floors and shower pans were first cleaned and then refinished in Miracle Method’s Natural Accents®, a stone-look finish that provided an upgraded and modern appearance to campus bathrooms.

The Result

Miracle Method successfully completed the refinishing project in just five days, as students returned to campus without any renovation disruptions. Management was impressed by the beauty, timeliness, and ease of future care and maintenance that Miracle Method’s Surface Refinishing process provided. As a result, the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind continues to utilize Miracle Method’s services for additional capital improvements.
