Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, California has led medical innovation for 130 years. Our team was tasked to continue to deliver that promise for Huntington Memorial Hospital. From the initial design-build stage, we partnered with Mannington Commercial, Ardex and Abbott Construction, and HDR architects to build the most state-of-the-art surgery department on the West coast. Universal Metro worked diligently to build every budget item - from standard sheet vinyl installation to the use of premier butterfly cornered self-coving, complete with heat welded seams, washed wall lighting effects, and a pour of Ardex self-leveling underlayment to meet the floor flatness and leveling requirements of Huntington Hospital’s surgical tables and state-of-the-art da Vinci surgical robotics equipment.
The department's state-of-the-art equipment was surrounded by flooring design elements which included solid homogenous sheet vinyl in several colors to safely highlight and guide the robotic systems for the surgeons and staff that perform the operations. In the sterile and common areas, a warmer, wellness-focused palette of homogenous, color-visual vinyl was used for wayfinding, door swing safety, and infection control areas. Universal Metro was honored to work on this $650,000 flooring project for their team.
With Universal Metro's Ardex LevelMaster Elite Installer certification, our team was tasked with finding and delivering a solution to the high and low FF issues and how to create a level surface for the robotic equipment to sit flat, flush, and swing uniformly though out the surgical suites safely and accurately
