At more than 70,000 square feet, the facility in Appleton, Wis., provides advanced cancer treatment options to roughly 300 patients daily.
The building was constructed at a cost of $17 million, and there was an additional $6-million expenditure for its equipment. Work on the project began in November 2014, and the facility began treating patients in September 2015.
Sustainability was a feature of many of the flooring materials used in the project. Interface carpet tile utilizes recycled content (with the level based on the style), and all styles are certified as Green Label Plus (an indoor air-quality certification), along with being verified as climate neutral by a third party.
Teknoflor, another flooring product installed, is FloorScore® certified and qualifies for LEED points in materials and indoor environmental quality. It contains up to 52 percent post-consumer recycled content and allows for cleaning with a no-buff system – meaning no odors from floor finish and no bacteria in the air during cleaning.
Additionally, the flooring adhesives utilized during installation were low in Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). In all, there were more than 16,000 square feet of flooring materials installed in the entire health and wellness center, including 4,300 square feet of ceramic tile.
