Sustainable Retailer Terra20 Uses Striations BBT Flooring in Award-Winning Design
Armstrong Commercial Flooring’s STRIATIONS BioBased Tile® (BBT) was used to help capture the grand prize for Canada’s Terra20 in the Association for Retail Environments (A.R.E.) 2013 Design Awards within the Sustainability Awards competition.
Terra20 is Canada’s largest one-stop store (15,000 square feet) entirely dedicated to green merchandise and carrying more than 12,000 products, from cosmetics to home décor items.
Sustainability & Style
“We are pleased to be recognized for both our sustainability and our style,” said Patricia Fanty, marketing manager, Armstrong Commercial Flooring. “Being able to offer a durable solution to a major need in the commercial industry by incorporating cutting-edge designs with sustainable options is what Armstrong is all about.”
STRIATIONS BioBased Tile creates strong visual lines for a distinct, yet subtle style for the store interior. Used in the creation of Terra22, a retail store in the Pinecrest Shopping Centre, located in Ottawa, Ontario, the stylish STRIATIONS BBT® brought an upscale look in a sustainable floor.
Bio-Based Alternative to VCT
“The choices we made in the design and construction of Terra20 needed to incorporate elements that reflected the retailer’s values and those of their customer community, providing a foundation and expectation of the brand,” said Eric Boulden, principal, Jump Branding & Design. “The decision to use LEED as a guideline and incorporate sustainable and recycled products was imperative in the design rollout. Armstrong STRIATIONS BBT offers a bio-based alternative to vinyl composition tile that contributes to LEED.”
