Karndean's Korlok Selected for St George Community Housing

St George Community Housing is one of the largest community housing providers in NSW. Founded in 1985, SGCH provides a place to call home for 11,500 people in 7,000 properties across the Sydney metropolitan region.

The Cartwright development is comprised of 64 units across two four-storey buildings. The building includes one and two-bedroom units that feature a contemporary open-plan living environment.

St George Community Housing required a modern flooring solution that not only fit the unit style but also ticked all the boxes for building compliance. Angus Nguyen, Development Manager at St George Community Housing explains how they decided to use Korlok by Karndean Designflooring, a rigid core product for this development.

“Korlok was installed into a few of our test apartments so we could see firsthand how the product performed. We were impressed with the results and Korlok proved to be a success in meeting our flooring requirements. That’s when we decided to swap the original specification of carpet and tile to Korlok for the entire project. Carpet wears easily and often needs to be replaced every couple of years. Deciding to use Korlok instead of carpet was going to be a huge cost saving for us in the long term and greatly reduce our maintenance cost,” explained Angus Nguyen.

“Durability, ease of installation, acoustic performance, and compliance with the Building Code of Australia for the multi-storey building were some of the key factors that led to our decision that Korlok by Karndean Designflooring would be the best flooring solution for our development," Angus adds.

Ryan L’Estrange, Sales Manager at Carpet Cutters Commercial was also impressed by Karndean's Korlok range. "We found Korlok by Karndean Designflooring incredibly easy to work with! We were impressed with how speedy it was to do the installation. Due to the quick and easy drop and lock installation method, our installers picked up the process straight away. We also found Korlok to be extremely durable and resilient as it withstood the wear and tear during the completion of the build.”
