Southern Cross Brightside Hospital in Epsom, Auckland is a short stay specialist medical facility offering a high quality environment to its patients.
Brightside Hospital was refurbished in the late 1990's, selecting Interface Events Plus custom colour carpet tile. The solution dyed nylon face fibre giving superior colour fastness, stain and soil release, the impervious backing and Intersept antimicrobial backed up by the reputation of InterfaceNZ Ltd.
Southern Cross recognized in 2009 that the facility needed an upgrade to freshen up the interior bringing it more in line with contemporary décor. This meant full interior make over including interior paint, curtains and some furnishings.
Southern Cross were so pleased by the performance of the original Interface carpet tile that they invited InterfaceNZ to provide options for pattern and colour from our current ranges. The random pattern (bio-mimicry based) design philosophy in all Interface ranges appealed especially in the hospital environment due to its massive facility management benefits.
The staff at Brightside were involved throughout the decision process, with the final selection being Cubic Balance. The rationale for the original decision to use Events Plus is continued with the Cubic range but additionally the inclusion of the high recycled content and the Interface commitment to our end of life take back policy resulting in some 900m2 diverted from land fill for recycling by Interface.
