Stockland Newport Retirement Living

PROJECT BRIEF

 

Arkhefield Architects have created a world-class community, from health and care services to lifestyle offers for retirees.

 

Stockland Newport Retirement Living in Newport is a Green Star rated community, received a highly coveted 5 Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). The 5 star rating signifies national leadership in design excellence and environmental responsibility, while also recognising the potential for future economic prosperity and livability within the community.

 

The right flooring choice needed to be complied with the 5 Star Green Rating as well as meet the BCA requirements for Building Class 9a.

 

Working in conjunction with Hutchinsons Builders, NFD supplied over 5500m2 of our Soundless Colorado Luxury Vinyl Planks. Our Soundless range was rated as ‘Grade A’ flooring by Global GreenTagCertTM and is also FloorScore Certified, making it suitable for the 5 Star Green Rating. With a P4 Slip Rating, the Soundless Colorado well and truly exceeded the BCA requirements for this project.

 

Soundless is the perfect solution for interior fit-outs as it is designed for extra heavy duty application and features our revolutionary “acoustic backing”. With 12 colours that authentically replicate natural timber species, combined with innovative technology our Soundless range is able to compliment any interior furnishings. NFD ‘Soundless’ also forms part of our environmentally preferred “Forever & Ever” program, ensuring our products have the longest possible life cycle.
