The educational experience impacts students' lives, establishes the mindset for learning, and determines their future professional demeanor. It’s important for the atmosphere to match the expectations. We were able to find a durable and sustainable floor that supported this environment. We installed VCT by Armstrong to help with the extra foot traffic in specific spaces. The J+J Flooring, Kinetex collection is right for K-12 projects because spills bead up on this unique flooring which makes it easy to maintain. And, it is stain-resistant. Noise can also impact students’ learning. Kinetex reduces sound, helping raise academic achievement. Kinetex minimizes airborne particles better than hard surfaces. It also reduces the environmental footprint during the manufacturing process. Executing the design with Lancer + Beebe helped create interactive spaces. We found the Kinetex collection fit perfectly in many spaces at the school.
