Nemours Children’s Hospital – Orlando
Hospital surfacing with rubber flooring Grain
Nemours is a non-profit pediatric health system dedicated to life-changing medical care and research. Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando, completed in 2012, also acts as an advocate for children while training future pediatrics experts.
Nemours Children’s Hospital was awarded LEED Gold Certification as established by the U.S. Green Building Council: currently part of a small group of children’s hospitals in the U.S. to achieve the Gold certification. The design strategy was implemented with a green initiative in mind that can also be observed in the daily operations of the hospital.
Such sustainability measures include lowered energy and water consumption, reduced greenhouse gas emission, use of recycled material and the addition of a one-acre outside garden. For this project we provided 27.000 sqm of our Grain rubber flooring. Due to its low maintenance that does not require chemical products or waxing, our floors were an easy choice for the architects at Stanley Beaman & Sears.
The Florida Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects recognized the hospital’s green initiatives and awarded them the 2013 Award of Excellence for building an innovative yet sustainable, user-friendly campus.
