QLD Police Service Case Study

PROJECT BRIEF


National Flooring Distributors (NFD) was proud to work in conjunction with Nettletontribe Architects and Abri Projects to supply over 12,000m2 of commercial carpet tile and resilient flooring for the new offices at 85 George St in Brisbane for the Queensland Police Service. 


When NFD was appointed preferred supplier, we performed within a short lead time of six weeks to deliver all of the required flooring products. Strict BCA requirements including slip rating, critical heat flux, dimensional stability and the castor wear test had to be met. We provided certification that not only surpassed these requirements but exceeded industry standards. 


The project also had additional requirements needing the vinyl plank to reduce impact noise transfer. Our Soundless Acoustic Vinyl Plank range achieves a Ln,w of 61 on a 200mm slab with no false sealing and meets the BCA requirements of a Ln,w  of 62 or less. In addition to this, Soundless is also a Level A Global GreenTag certified product. 


We would like to congratulate Nettletontribe Architects and Abri Projects for delivering an exceptional quality project that ran seamlessly from beginning to completion.
