WHEN an exciting new fitness and wellbeing centre was created by Ben Cohen and Kristina Rihanoff, the aim was to have high performance at its heart. A flooring solution was needed that could overcome several issues, while delivering an elegant finish to compliment the Soo Yoga brand.
DMS FLOORING SUPPLIES visited site, listened to their needs and offered UltraCore as a solution.
According to DMS, the project highlights included:
- More than 1,000sq m installed in Traditional Oak, Natural Oak, Colorado and Banff;
- Versatility. Fitted in multiple areas such as the spinning room, hot yoga studio, treatment rooms, dance studio, changing rooms, restaurant, crèche and soft play area;
- Installation speed. For example, the 75sq m dance studio was fitted in four hours
‘We honed in on the fast pace of the project, limited timescale, existing subfloor challenges and the most important requirement of having a beautiful, natural looking high-performance floor,’ says the company.
‘With multiple trades working onsite simultaneously the flooring installation process couldn’t hinder overall progress. The UltraCore flooring range with its 5G click system enabled large areas to be installed quickly, in conjunction with other trades working on site and consequently taking footfall immediately.’
Using the Brampton Chase UltraCore range meant minimal subfloor preparation was required which helped save time and money while significantly reducing access restrictions on installation, the company says. ‘In many cases UltraCore was fitted over the existing hard floors onsite.’
The Soo Yoga Wellbeing Centre in SolCentral, Northampton offers hot yoga, spinning, dance classes, a HIIT studio, treatment rooms, changing room facilities with saunas and showers, a vegan restaurant, crèche and a soft play area.
‘With UltraCore being 100% waterproof and stable under high temperatures this meant we could flow the flooring throughout the different areas effortlessly,’ says the company. ‘To cap it off, the selected range of colours were perfect for the ambiance of the brand and location. Brampton Chase offered Soo Yoga an elite high-performance flooring solution with calming subtle tones enhanced by our superior realistic wood grain emboss surface.’
