With each new time driving through Albany, it seems that there is another office building or industrial park opening up. This endless building cycle brings a watershed of the latest technologies and practices in design and construction.
An excellent example of a new global trend is the finishing in this recently opened four storey office/retail space by Williams Architect in the office park on Corinthian Drive.
In a move away from conventional carpet tiles, the staircase and landings are finished using a black and white speckled Neoflex Rubber Flooring system, supplied by Advance Flooring Systems.
Neoflex Rubber Flooring is a high quality, sophisticated coated polymer blend designed to look as great as it performs. It's functional, long-lasting, safe, and easy to maintain.
The robust surface is made from recycled rubber, adding to the building's sustainability rating. It's impervious to water, protecting the base and making cleaning effortless. It insulates and dampens noise and shock waves. Most importantly, it meets or exceeds fire ratings for corridors and public areas.
Neoflex rubber flooring can be found around the world and in NZ in some of the largest and most safety conscious buildings like airports, schools and hospitals. The variety of standard finishes can be customised to include graphics and style cues.
Neoflex is supplied by Advance Flooring Systems, a leading NZ manufacturer of innovative commercial flooring and entrance matting systems servicing Australia and the Pacific. Advance has installed Neoflex recycled rubber in a number of projects throughout New Zealand.
