WINNING PROJECT IDEA
Laboratory Floor Design
Easy Wayfinding, simple, elegant, timeless pattern.
This design is of a renovation of a research laboratory that's attached to a hospital. There are five separate floors each
with similar space planning designs. Renovations include new laboratories with wet benches, equipment rooms, cold room, autoclave
sterilization rooms, etc. as required by research investigators. Work to include the complete demolition of the space except
the existing elevator and stair tower. In addition to laboratory space, portions of the the floors will include office/administrative
space, a conference room, rest rooms and locker storage to support laboratory personnel. The goal of the project is to create
a safe, efficient and pleasant work environment for the investigators and their staff.
Since this renovation is of a laboratory the utmost clean-ability and durability are required. Armstrong’s MedleyTM Sheet Flooring was chosen because of its hiding power from subfloor imperfections. This is extremely important since this
project is a renovation. Also, each floor of the building will have the same background colored sheet flooring and the two
accent stripe colors will change from floor to floor to color code and easy way finding. Since Medley has 32 colors to choose
from, this can be accomplished.
The finished floor plan is accompanied by a rendering to show how the flooring will work and blend well with the other design
aspects of the project such as the lockers, and the bench alcove. We decided on a simple floor finish pattern to accentuate
the space as a whole.
