In their new facility in the Waikato they were after a design aesthetic for their office spaces that reflected New Zealand. Interface custom and standard Human Nature Collection and standard Composure || Collection carpet tiles were selected to achieve this biophilic nod to the facilities natural surroundings.
Quality and sustainability were also key considerations for Tomra.
Having access to manufacture, solution dyed nylon flooring in Australia means Inzide can provide a custom solution in 8 weeks. Add to this a 15-year standard product warranty and the unrivalled sustainability attributes of Interface carpet tiles (Carbon Neutral, Closed-loop recyclable, low VOC’s, Greentag Level A Certified) and the decision was and easy one to make, Interface carpet tiles from Inzide.
While the atrium and office spaces have a beautiful local story to tell, the lab and manufacturing areas required fit-for-purpose solutions of a more specialist nature.
Anti-static Marmolem, Marmoleum Ohmex by global resilient flooring leader, Forbo Flooring Systems was specified to provide a natural alternative to vinyl while still meeting the anti-static requirements for high-tech machinery. Surestep Laguna Safety Vinyl was used in areas where slip was a concern and Sphera Homogeneous Vinyl was used in the general use zones.
With an investment such as this in 2000+m2 of flooring it is important that it is protected from unnecessary contaminants for the longevity of the flooring and appearance retention. Coral Entrance Matting by Forbo is designed to ensure contamination, dirt and grit is not brought into a building and transferred between different areas, removing up to 95% of contaminants from footwear as a person passes over it, it was the obvious solution for Tomra’s diverse use facility.
Delivered on time and in budget, what a fantastic result that will look great for years to come.
