Installation: NZI Centre Auckland – 5 Green Star Build and Office Interior
Installer: Lovich Flooring
Product: Blueprint Custom, Chenille Time Custom – All 600X600 On Grid
The NZI Centre at 1 Fanshawe Street will accommodate around 600 staff and has a 5 Green Star rating ensuring it achieves the highest standards in terms of environmentally sustainable design. Currently it is one of the most energy efficient office developments built in New Zealand, showcases a range of green features including an underfloor air distribution (UFAD) air conditioning system and a twin skin facade with motorised external blinds controlled to respond to optimise the energy use based on solar flux and cooling demand.
The raised access floor plenum is used to supply air to individual floor mounted diffuser grilles with the perimeter air conditioning system being supplemented in selected locations with underfloor mounted 4 pipe fan coil units for heating and cooling.
Hence specialist carpet was required. Interface are the carpet tile specialists. No matter what your requirement we can meet it. In this case with raised floors (and hence the need for simple access to the floor space) Interface offered magnetic strips, buttons and TacTiles and specialist sizing to fit the raised floor grid. 600mmX600mm with buttons was the preferred option for the NZI centre. The photos show the button concept.
