UZIN products were chosen in order to meet the stringent requirements needed to install the large format solid floorcoverings that were specified.

Data

Building type Hospitality (USA)
Area (S/F) 400 s/f of self-leveling for large format wood parquet and carpeting
CountryUSA

Originally built as The Girard Trust Company in 1908, this historical gem is a reproduction of the Pantheon in Rome and its neoclassical style features 9,000 tons of Georgia marble. It was important to maintain the building’s banking history in the renovation’s design and those elements can clearly be seen in the sophisticated rich colors of precious metals and currency. UZIN products were chosen in order to meet the stringent requirements needed to install the large format solid floorcoverings that were specified.

SCOPE

400 s/f of self-leveling for large format wood parquet and carpeting

FLOORCOVERINGS

Architectural Systems Inc. wood parquet, ICE International custom area rugs

CHALLENGES

Metropolitan Contract Carpets had to deal with a 110 year old concrete substrate that was uneven (from 0” to 1.5” deep) and in need of surface strengthening prior to leveling ahead of the installation of the wood parquet and specialty areas rugs.

SOLUTION

UZIN PE 460 MVR/Primer was selected in a one coat application to act as a surface consolidator and strengthener while also incorporating a sand broadcast to provide a gritted surface ahead of leveling with UZIN NC 170. This same process was used in the locations where the custom area rugs were installed only using UZIN NC 150 self- leveling compound with UZIN PE 460 to repair minor surface imperfections and to provide floor flatness as needed.
