Bench progress

The benches for the Alfred Plaza are underway.

Two holes are drilled into each piece of Corian® flashing to accept a 2" galvanized pipe for structural support. The pieces are spaced by a failed Estee Lauder promotional bracelet, rescued from the business waste stream by the Hudson Valley Materials Exchange.

The benches will most likely be clad with a composite decking material. They will be virtually maintenance free for the next 25-30 years, which should be a relief for the Village of Alfred department of Public Works.
