Per the Client, "It was important to create themes that met the requests from the Fire Station Design Committee we could carry through the entire design and build process. Our building theme is “Feels Like Home” and the flooring theme is “Ease of Cleanliness.” Combining these themes kept us on track when considering costs, feel, and function. Each area of the Station was divided into a flooring finish based on use. The sleeping areas were finished in Luxury Vinyl Tile Flooring instead of finished concrete flooring to improve acoustics in the bedrooms and in the adjoining hallway. The Milliken LVT in all of the bedrooms made it easy to clean and maintain. The Roppe Tuflex rubber tile used in the gym area helps with both acoustics and ease of maintenance. The bathrooms were finished with large tile and open showers to reduce crevices and areas difficult to clean. The challenges we faced justifying the flooring finishes over just sealed concrete were difficult at times."
