Having been satisfied with your work on a number of other contracts with which we have charged you in the past, we are at Welbilt Design and Construction again commissioning your services in support of a recent job that we have obtained with the Lonlinc Airport Commission. In an effort to improve the quality of the air transportation offered to its citizens, the LAC has recently embarked on an effort to renovate and expand the well-used airport in Lonlinc.
As a major contractor for parts of this reconstruction, Welbilt is in
charge of the new lighting to be installed in the airport. The
modern, attractive fixtures to be installed are shown in figure 1.
To properly plan the positioning of these fixtures, we need to know where on the floor under the fixtures the intensity of the direct light is the greatest, and it is to obtain an estimate for this that we are contacting you. As we need to have a full report for the LAC by mid-December, we need your final report on this matter by the 8th of December. To facilitate your work, we have arranged with a local mathematical expert and friend of ours, the redoubtable Dr. let-us-not-forget-the-P. Gavin LaRose, to serve as a contact for any questions you may have in your work. You should contact him with a report of your progress by the 19th of November and again by the 3rd of December. Any failure to meet these deadlines will result in an arbitrarily large penalty to your grade.
We look forward to hearing from you.
