When relocating their headquarters to this up-and coming New York City neighborhood, this 115,000 SF corporate office space needed a re-design that would complement the overall renovation of the historic building. It was important to design a functional and durable office space while focusing on specific architectural elements and materials that would add a layer of detail and character to the expansive floorplates. The flooring was integrated into the overall design. Each floor was given a specific color to assist with wayfinding throughout the building. While using a neutral flooring in the centralized open work area, a pop of color was used in conference and meeting rooms along the perimeter. The client needed flooring that would hold up to the daily wear and tear of the constant flow of clients while mitigating noise on the expansive floorplates that seated 600+ employees. The project specification called for 83, 745 sq. ft. of J+J’s Kinetex flooring. It is a textile composite flooring that contributes to noise reduction, is highly durable, and low maintenance. Kinetex is a very sustainable flooring solution, containing no less than 45% post-consumer recycled content. One box of Kinetex (18 tiles or 72 sq. ft.) contains the equivalent of 492 plastic water bottles! VCT was also used in the re-design for its resilience against heavy foot traffic. The installation consisted of eight Armstrong Flooring Crown Texture colorways and a variety of custom cut patterns. The flooring contractor’s project management division seamlessly coordinated the installation schedule to work efficiently with the general contractor and other trades working in tandem.
