UCOL in Palmerston North was having significant broadloom and supplier issues. The broadloom that they had been told would be up to the challenge of handling hundreds of students every day and soiling from having a café and community IT space in the large atrium was simply already failing and was not even 1 year old. The incumbent supplier – an agent for an overseas mill – was not willing to replace the carpet and the exiting warranty was useless as it was with a Mill on the other side of the world.
So UCOL put their flooring requirements out to tender and after a significant process carpet tileInterface carpet tile supplied by INZIDE Commercial was declared the preferred flooring.
4 key factors won the tender according to UCOL
20 year warranties that were signed off by the Directors of INZIDE in NZ and back to backed with Interface Inc.
Unparralled sustainability positioning – GreenTag gold, carboNZero and certified recycling at the end of their life – No NZ Landfill
Huge design pedigree with best in class yarns and carpet tile construction
Service – dedicated account manager with 24 hour guaranteed to be on site
4 years later and UCOL is still enjoying a wonderful relationship with INZIDE Commercial and flooring choice. Expert consultative approach, fit for purpose flooring and very importantly it copes with the student’s activities and sheer numbers.
