WMS completed a large refurbish project at the EDS facilities' H2 building. Our work focused on the sixth floor, where executive conference and meeting rooms are located. The project included repair and touch-up work on both wood and leather on numerous conference tables, doors, podiums, wall paneling, built-ins, reception desks and chairs.

Fig. 2 Kelvin Franzwa makes repairs to wood tables in the Marie Curie Room. In addition to the tables, we repaired the finish on podiums, presentation board cabinets, built-in buffets and shelves, baseboards, paneling and the arms and bases on chairs in each room. We also performed some leather refinishing on the leather table inserts, and other leather repair and touch-up on the chairs and table inserts.

Fig. 3 John Russ performs a total refinish of 14 leather panel inserts on the tables in the Albert Einstein Room.

When the customer replaced a few of the inserts with new leather, it was discovered that someone had dyed ten of the inserts the wrong color. We refinished all inserts to the correct color of the original leather.

Fig. 4 In addition to work in the meeting rooms, we repaired and touched up some 60 doors in this area.

The door that Bruce Blair is working on here is flanked by the glass walls of the Marco Polo Room on the right, and the Mozart Room on the left.

Fig 5. The Benjamin Franklin Room is the largest of the thirteen meeting rooms in this area.

As these tables are often moved around, in and out, they were pretty badly beaten. So were the leather chairs.

The tabletop inserts for this room are plastic laminate rather than leather, because these tables receive so much abuse.

Fig. 6 For wood repairs, the Gutenberg Room pictured here and the Curie Room nearby were the most heavily damaged of the wood & leather tables. You can see some of our masking paper and supplies on a couple of tables here. Jorge Cuebas, Mark Gunter, Kelvin Franzwa and Javier Gonzales repaired the woodwork in this room. John Russ and Beverly Handy did the leather restoration.

Fig. 7 The tables in the Innovation Room are inlayed with plastic laminate, like those in the Franklin Room. Kelvin Franzwa, Lee Andrew and Samuel Araiza repaired the woodwork here, and Beverly Handy did the leather chair restoration.

Fig. 8 The Marconi Room had extensive water damage to the edge of the veneered tabletop just beneath the glass. The damage was touched-up by Kelvin Franzwa. We also touched-up the chairs, the built-in buffet, and the door here.

Fig. 9 Samuel Araiza and Lee Andrew worked the finish in the Samuel Morse Room.

John Russ came in later to refinish the leather table inserts, and Beverly Handy helped with the leather chairs.

This photo was taken before the leather work was done. In it, you can see the mis-matched earlier repairs performed by one of our competitors.

Fig. 11 The Marco Polo Room is one of three beautiful Dining/Conference rooms encased in glass.

The twin buffets and the table here are mirrored by the Frank Lloyd Wright Room; these two rooms are separated by the extravagant Mozart Room.

Fig. 12 The Mozart Room.

This beautiful table of fine veneerwork, covered with beveled glass, has to be seen to be fully appreciated. At each end stands a large, exquisitely veneered china cabinet, each a mirror of the other.

In addition to performing touch-up on this furniture, we extracted the seats on the dining chairs.

Fig. 13 The Paintings, floral arrangements and crystal candy dishes are different, but the fine furniture of the Wright Room pictured at left is mirrored in the Polo Room.

Two beautifully veneered twin buffets, and a beautifully veneered tabletop under beveled glass.

EDS began as a Ross Perot company, Electronic Data Systems. The company is, among other things, a clearing house for electronic transactions through ATM's across the Americas and Europe. EDS has been acquired by Hewlitt Packard now, and is currently known as HP Enterprise Services.
