2012 i2r Bonus Winner for Use of NATURAL CREATIONS Luxury Flooring
Springhill Medical Center – Mobile, Alabama
NATURAL CREATIONS LUXURY FLOORING ENHANCES SPA-LIKE ATMOSPHERE IN HOSPITAL SETTING
At the core of its mission, Springhill Medical Center (SMC) values providing high quality health care in a comfortable setting.
The emphasis on creating a soothing, spa-like atmosphere was central to the renovation of SMC’s Gastroenterology Department.
Designers selected NATURAL CREATIONS Luxury Flooring because it met the hospital’s aesthetic and performance requirements
in a cost-effective floor covering. To create a stylish yet comfortably familiar look, designers blended the beauty of natural
hardwood in the NATURAL CREATIONS ArborArt Luxury Flooring line with the abstract, organic patterns in the NATURAL CREATIONS
Mystix Luxury Flooring collection. The natural textures are perfectly balanced in a neutral palette, creating a soothing visual
with a modern, slightly energetic vibe.
The extensive range of coordinated colors, patterns, and textures across all NATURAL CREATIONS Luxury Flooring lines provided
designers greater flexibility in coordinating flooring designs throughout the entire project.
Visual: The rustic visuals of driftwood and silk scarf mixed with the linear look of aria to create a modern look and feel.
Life-Cycle Costing: NATURAL CREATIONS Luxury Flooring is a high-performance, low-maintenance floor with exceptional durability and longevity
with endless design possibilities.
Maintenance: Armstrong’s UV-cured coating can eliminate the need for polishes and spray buffing, which saves time, costs, energy and resources.
Environmental: NATURAL CREATIONS Luxury Flooring has low VOC emissions – California Section 01350 compliant, third-party FloorScore™ certification
(meeting stringent indoor air quality standards) and LEED® eligibility.
