LG Hausys Floors, the resilient floor covering division of LG Hausys America, Inc., Has announced that its NatureLife collection of heterogeneous resilient sheet flooring was specified by OWP/P Architecture for all eight levels of a new addition to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, Illinois.
Searching for a sustainable resilient flooring option with recyclable content for the new addition seeking LEED certification, Jocelyn Stroupe, principal and director of healthcare interiors at OWP/P, selected LG Hausys Floors' NatureLife collection after an exhaustive evaluation period. NatureLife, which utilizes LG Hausys Floors exclusive "Embossed in Register" technology to re-create the texture and appearance of real hardwood flooring, ranked first on every card at three different snapshots in time via a survey conducted of the hospital's physicians, nurses and cleaning staff.
"In addition to cost comparisons, life-cycle and durability comparisons, we also emphasized the need for a green flooring option," said Stroupe. "That narrowed the field down considerably at the beginning. We set-up mock rooms at the hospital and installed each option we were considering. We did a much more intensive evaluation period than we normally would, polling members of the staff on several different topics at specific snapshots in time. NatureLife from LG Hausys Floors scored first on every card each time we conducted the survey."
