Libraries have moved from being repositories of book to complete community hubs.
Johnsonville library has even changed its name to Johnsonville library at Waitohi hub. Not only does it boast reading/watching material in multiple formats but it also incorporates a cafe and Kindergarten with connection to the Keith Spry pool.
Waitohi hub makes a statement around welcome, continuity, strength and community. The floor needed to provide substantiation around this statement. Plus the carpet needed to perform longer and be stronger (more foot traffic), provide acoustic dampening and yet look great, look welcoming, look modern, be beautiful.
Athfields called in INZIDE – suppliers of Interface carpet tile for their advice when looking to specify the flooring. After all, Interface is the global leader when it comes to Carpet Tile as shown by these key credentials;
