Sustainable Flooring Prescribed for Hospital

Monday, August 3, 2009

Comment | More

Stonhard, a manufacturer of seamless resinous floor, wall, and lining systems, said it is supplying sustainable flooring materials for key portions of Kiowa County Memorial Hospital in the tornado-ravaged town of Greensburg, KS.

Greensburg was struck by a devastating EF 5 tornado in 2007, which resulted in the deaths of 11 residents and the destruction of 95% of the town’s buildings. The town’s leadership and residents resolved to rebuild, and made green and sustainable design and construction a priority. Stonhard said it also is planning a financial contribution to support the town’s green-building program.

Stonhard said it will supply highly durable and resistant flooring systems for the trauma area, emergency room, corridors, and kitchen at Kiowa County, a critical access hospital that will serve as the area’s largest medical center. Hospital planners are working with the architecture and engineering firm Health Facilities Group and the general contractor, Murray Company Contracting, in the project.

Stonhard said its flooring systems will meet the performance needs of the facility while contributing to the hospital’s goal of achieving LEED Platinum certification. The company says the flooring can help a project earn LEED points in the categories of Building Reuse, Construction Waste Management, Recycled Content, Regional Materials, Rapidly Renewable Materials, and Low-Emitting Materials.
