Elementary school gymnasiums all over the U.S. are being renovated to meet today’s “fitness for life” trends in physical education and take advantage of modern building technologies. Katy, Texas’ Independent School District (ISD) made the decision to update its schools’ gym floors with new vinyl sports flooring.
Reconstructing Mercy Hospital Joplin with materials designed to withstand powerful tornadoes was the goal of this project. Because of the hospital’s vast size, the flooring system must be compatible with a variety of different materials. In addition, hospitals increasingly recognize the risk posed by moisture vapor emissions from concrete slabs.
