North Greenville Elementary School is a new K-4 instructional facility completed in August 2014, built to alleviate overcrowding at the city’s other elementary school and to ready for future population growth. Large, collaborative spaces with fun colors and patterns were desired, and classroom wings by grade were established that corresponded to flooring colors.
Five different colorful designs of Armstrong Imperial Textures VCT (approx. 45,000 SF) were utilized in the classroom areas and corridors, including fun way-finding elements such as checkered patterns. Vivid, contrasting colors were installed, like red and black. The “fun” theme extended into the music room, where an intricate piano design using Armstrong VCT was installed. A variety of other Starnet products were used throughout the school, including Daltile Continental Slate Tile in the cafeteria commons, Daltile Quarry Tile in the kitchen and food service area, Daltile Keystone and Semi-gloss Tile in the bathrooms. Johnsonite Stair Tread and Reducers were utilized in step areas. Other materials utilized throughout included CHAPCO Defender, CHAPCO SmoothFinish, CHAPCO Deep-Fill Patch and HENRY® Clear Stick and Cove Base adhesive.
The project was completed on a tight time frame, with a hard completion date in order for the school to be operational for 2014-15.
