Francisco and Eloise immediately met with the team at the James L. Knight Center to discuss their vision for the space. The most pressing aspect was the more than 7,000 yards of print carpet
, which needed to be switched out for solution-based nylon in order to meet the new aesthetic, acoustic, and durability requirements. While the job itself was no problem, the tight window available for completion presented a challenge. The team got to work right away.
As with all flooring projects, samples were ordered and presented to the client, helping to ensure confidence in their final decision. Initially, we presented 20 different examples—all of which we felt could match the performance and aesthetic needs of the Center. Upon client review however, none were the right fit. That’s when we suggested we place a custom order.
Unfortunately, a custom flooring commission can be a lengthy undertaking when not executed properly. Thanks to our years of extensive research and relationships with top manufacturers however, we were confident we could secure a smooth process. This meant regular check-ins with the manufacturers and updates for the client. Once received, we conducted a thorough internal quality check, with the final pieces not being presented until Francisco and Eloise had given their own personal seals of approval.
