Installation: Environment Bay of Plenty (EBOP) - Whakatane
Specifier: Mike Bryan, InterfaceNZ
Installer: Meikles Flooring, Whakatane
Product: EntropyRE Basalt with GlasBacRE backing and automatic carbon neutral offset
Environment Bay of Plenty had strict criteria for their flooring:
A flexible and sustainable solution to their floor requirements.
Extensive Guarantees (at least 15 years) and Warranties including castor chair warranty.
Highly resistant to harsh light and ease of maintenance.
Due to InterfaceNZ’s leadership in the sustainability field and high satisfaction ratings from many Local Governments across New Zealand, they called InterfaceNZ directly.
The solution? A random designed carpet tile (less than 1% laying wastage) with maximum facility management flexibility – no dye lots or patterns to match up against – minimum installation disruption - with a blue colour palette to match the BOP coastal region.
Entropy combines a 100% solution dyed nylon yarn with up to 50% recycled content (does not fade in the sun, 15 year performance guarantee), with a recycled and recyclable PVC backing and carbon neutralization through Meridian Energy’s Te Apiti Wind farm.
And the result – simply awesome. An extremely satisfied customer who will be continuing with a progressive refurbishment of the rest of the building, aesthetically pleasing and more importantly, satisfies their requirement for a neutralized environmental impact.
