Workers from F & S Building Innovations spent Monday installing new surfaces, donated by Trex, a company located in Harrisonburg, to the benches that surround the plaza at the National D-Day Memorial.
The Trex material looks like stained wooden planks. The workers saw it and use construction screws to secure the planks in place, but it’s not wood. It’s made of recycled plastic bottles. According to Martin Leamy, the D-Day Memorial’s site manager, it’s more weather resistant than pressure treated wood.
