Spotted: Happy fences at SLAC

SLAC smiley face fences

The construction crew for the Research Support Building must be one happy bunch, if the smiley-face patterns cut into several of the shade cloth panels that veil the work site are any indication.

Workers made wind-relief slashes in the cloth to prevent strong gusts from blowing down any of the modular sections of chain-link fence around the work site, said Mike Hinojosa, a SLAC field construction manager. He said he suspects that the contractor, Overaa Construction, did not specify the mirthful design, ”but we consider it a light-hearted indication that we all should wear a smile at this site.”
