    We will first install drywall and checker plate flooring before we cut out and install doors and ventilation frames.
    The next step is installing steel stud framing and spray foam, which is followed by a 2-hour fire-rated wall construction system.
    We will finish off the mod by installing a 10” exhaust fan, intake damper vents, a heat pump / AC unit, panic bar door hardware with a self-closing device, and a final coat of epoxy floor coating.
