Hec Ed floor getting a new coat!
If you have been in Hec Edmundson Pavilion over the last week or so, you've noticed a little renovation going on. The playing floor is undergoing its annual refinishing process.
Every spring contractors are hired by UW athletics to come in and sand, repair, repaint and refinish (say that three times fast!) the floor. The entire process takes around five weeks and, since they started on April 19, should be completed around May 24.
Certainly, it's a little strange to see the floor stripped of its finish and without the familiar purple and white paint. Check out the photo to the right, taken by UW communications assistant Jeremy Cothran.
In the meantime, Washington's men's and women's basketball and volleyball teams are conducting off-season workouts, practices and pick-up games in the East Gym and Marv Harshan Court, which are adjacent to the arena - just off the concourse areas.
