We have been working on a very large, long-term project for Premier Health Care Management. After they purchased Wexford Care Center in suburban Cincinnati in 2017, they committed themselves to a largescale upgrade to the facility. The difficult part was making all the upgrades while patients were still living there. Our team has been hard at work upgrading all of the flooring in the building. Rather than remove existing flooring, we have been installing a luxury vinyl plank (LVP) floor over the existing floor. This will save our client a significant amount of money and minimize disruption. And LVP is perfect for this kind of situation. LVP “floats” over the existing flooring rather than having to be adhered directly to the underlying concrete. This saves lots of time on demolition and installation. We recommended LVP because it has a rather “soft,” natural feel to it. It also provides a very smooth, even surface that makes it easy for patients to traverse in wheelchairs and walkers. The surface is very durable, so it can easily take the impacts that would damage other floor types. And one, final practical point: LVP does not require waxing, which can be a time-consuming and disruptive bit of maintenance. On the design side, Premier really liked the idea that even though this is commercial LVP, it has a very homey feel too it, which is important for the care of their patients. We selected an LVP from Konnecto called Sierra in a color called Quincy – a medium oak finish that gives a warm wood look to the rooms and hallways. We also installed a matching baseboard in a matching color to avoid those ugly hospital-looking baseboards. One final thing: It’s quiet. You won’t hear the kind of echoing that you get with tile or other manufactured floors. And quiet is very important to Premier in helping create a home-like setting for everyone.We have been working on a very large, long-term project for Premier Health Care Management.
