Floorwise has recently completed a 30,000 + m2 project at The Fiona Stanley Hospital…..on time, within budget and to a standard that was second to none. Our contract consisted of the following works….. floor vinyl, wall vinyl, carpet tiles, wet-areas screeding and waterproofing, aluminium skirting, pin up boards, whiteboards, entrance matting, safety stair treads, and tactiles.
The entire works were completed using Floorwise internal staff and in-house capabilities. The floors were laid using Forbo Surestep Vinyl (bathroom floors), Forbo Eternal Wood Vinyl (bedrooms & passageways), Armstrong Vinyl (to wet area walls), Interface and Desso Carpet Tiles (administration building and offices). Ardex Cement Screeds and Waterproofing Membranes were used throughout the entire project. These products combined created a very pleasing visual effect. (see job photos in Floorwise Gallery)
The Architects were from 3 of Australia’s largest firms, joining forces to become a “Design Collaboration” (comprising design firms Hames Sharley, Silver Thomas Hanley and HASSELL) and were responsible for delivering urban design architecture, landscape architecture and interior design for the $1.76 billion project.
