I’ve been told by a fistful of masons that there is one client that consistently requires –demands, even- the most stringent specifications for concrete block walls far above and beyond any other client they ever dealt with.
Who could this client be?
Some federal agency? Nuclear facilities? Chemical companies? Bio-containment? The pentagon? Prisons?
No, it’s Wal-Mart.
Next time you’re at Wal-Mart (we all do it) look at the concrete block walls. If you find a flaw, go find management and complain. Tell ‘em I sent ya.
