George and Carol Goodwin of Goodwin Co. and Howard Brickman of Brickman Consulting are partnering with Bona to refinish the Key West Custom House Museum floors.
The public is invited to meet the team and view a demonstration of the latest techniques in museum wood floor finishing at the museum on Saturday, May 3 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Bona is donating all of the finishing supplies and equipment.
With over 33 years of experience in the wood flooring industry, Brickman is considered an expert in troubleshooting unplanned wood floor problems and wood floor civil lawsuits. Brickman served as the former manager of inspection and school services at the National Oak Floor Manufacturing Association (predecessor of the National Wood Flooring Association).
George and Carol Goodwin are the co-founders of Goodwin Co., manufacturer of antique reclaimed and River-Recovered wood flooring. George Goodwin is considered the pioneer of River-Recovered wood flooring. His passion has taken him deep into river bottoms to reclaim some of the oldest, most beautiful heartpine and heart cypress. Goodwin’s wood has been specified by architects and designers for use in architecture and homes, including the Texas Governor’s Mansion, Charnley-Norwood House and private residences of Paul McCartney and Frank Lloyd Wright.
Members of the media and public are invited and encouraged to attend the public museum floor re-finish demonstration. Building design professionals interested in earning CEU credits can attend the free “Architectural and Design Uses of Reclaimed Woods" presentation being held Wednesday, April 30 at the Custom House from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The team will also be holding a "Self Defense for Wood Floor Professionals" class on Thursday and Friday afternoons.
