Rendezvous Hotel

Floorwise has recently completed installing new carpets throughout the newly refurbished Rendezvous Hotel in Scarborough. We started on level 25 and worked our way seemlessly to the ground floor lobby all whilst the hotel was still in operation.

The carpet used, was custom made by Brintons ( http://www.brintons.net/apac/en/ ) who manufacturer wool rich and nylon woven Axminster and Wilton carpets (see job photos in Floorwise Gallery). The job consisted of removing existing carpet and underlay and installing new carpets to over 300+ guest suites and rooms, restaurants, bars and conference and meeting facilities. The renovations also included over 2400m² of refreshed conference space, including 16 meeting rooms and two grand ballrooms.

Fiona Stanley Hospital

Floorwise has recently completed a 30,000 + m2 project at The Fiona Stanley Hospital…..on time, within budget and to a standard that was second to none. Our contract consisted of the following works….. floor vinyl, wall vinyl, carpet tiles, wet-areas screeding and waterproofing, aluminium skirting, pin up boards, whiteboards, entrance matting, safety stair treads, and tactiles.

The entire works were completed using Floorwise internal staff and in-house capabilities. The floors were laid using Forbo Surestep Vinyl (bathroom floors), Forbo Eternal Wood Vinyl (bedrooms & passageways), Armstrong Vinyl (to wet area walls), Interface and Desso Carpet Tiles (administration building and offices). Ardex Cement Screeds and Waterproofing Membranes were used throughout the entire project. These products combined created a very pleasing visual effect. (see job photos in Floorwise Gallery)
