Julius Flooring understands that creating conducive learning environments goes beyond traditional classrooms. Flooring plays a pivotal role in shaping the educational experience, providing comfort, safety, and aesthetic appeal.
We work closely with educational institutions to deliver installations that align with their unique requirements. Whether it's selecting materials with eco-consciousness in mind or incorporating school colors and designs, our installations contribute to a vibrant and inspiring atmosphere.
NEXTSENSE CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE
HOW WE HELPED A MAMMOTH PROJECT SPRING TO LIFE
The NextSense Centre of Excellence on Macquarie University’s campus awarded to ADCO is a $75 million project expected to deliver innovative and dedicated services to people with hearing or vision loss and advanced education in these fields of learning.
As trusted trade partners with ADCO, Julius Flooring was engaged to ensure our innovative, organised, and safe approach to conducting works would be displayed on this project.
Undertaking the mammoth task included the following vast range of materials:
Over 4750m² of Milliken’s PVE Free WellBAC cushion backed carpet tiles
1085m² of Gibbon Group’s Tretford Interlife rolls
1145m² of vinyl from Tarkett’s iQ Granit and SafeT range
290m² of Forbo vinyl
180m² of Godfrey Hirst timber look vinyl planks
2x Tapetti Custom designed broadloom rugs (Water Dreaming designed by ‘Mikanji by Angelina Nampijinpa Tasman’)
38.3 tonne of self leveller pumped in using ScreedPro
Over 8500m² of grinding in prep for floorcoverings
A site sized at roughly 12300m² internally across three levels and two sites
6+ months of installation time on-site
Commencing in June 2023 and still underway until handover in January 2024, this has been a memorable install for the Julius Flooring team.
Our challenges were encountered when in constant battle with other trades to access areas on-site to start and complete areas of flooring on this project. A full scale installation of floor prep across this job to ensure compliant floor standards saw plenty of extra work added to the already overflowing load of work. The intensive detail to floor preparation and installation at NextSense has been astronomical. The finish line is nearing and is exciting for the team.
OUR LADY OF PEACE, GREYSTANES
HOW WE HELPED A CRUCIAL EDUCATION PROJECT
FAL Constructions were entrusted with the Stage 3 works at Our Lady of Peace, Greystanes: A new primary school with innovative and exciting designs by DTA Architects.
A contemporary collection of technology, touch interfaces, custom joinery and furniture, this was a great educational project for the Catholic Education; Diocese of Parramatta.
Our part in this project saw the following items added to the new build at OLOP:
270m² of Tuftmaster’s 100% wool carpet from their ‘Rossmore Heather’ range
80m² of entry matting carpet tiles from Forbo
350m² of concrete grinding in preparation for the installation of floorcoverings
Across two levels, our work on this project saw our team spend three weeks on-site, allowing other trades to access spaces to complete overhead works before installing our flooring.
Ensuring we maintained compliance especially in an educational environment, Julius Flooring installed underlay to guarantee movement across the carpet was not only accessible but manageable for those using mobility devices such as wheelchairs.
