On the cover:
When it comes to commercial retail installations, there's a big push for haste, says Eduardo Martinez, owner of Fort Worth, Texas-based Martinez Commercial Flooring Services. In this month's reader-submitted cover photo, the Martinez Commercial Flooring Services' installation team shows just how quickly they moved to clear out their workspace and get started on the install, working within a tight window of when the store closed at 10 p.m. to when it was set to reopen the next morning at 8 a.m. "Forty- nine minutes after closing, we had already cleared out everything," said Martinez. The goal? To be so quick, you make it seem like you were never there, he says.
