Style® strand woven bamboo flooring will feature throughout the new Triptych luxury apartment development located at Southbank, in the heart of Melbourne’s arts precinct. The project is expected to be completed by late October 2010. Style bamboo flooring was specified because of its strong environmental credentials (GECA certified); natural characteristics; excellent hardness qualities; and design suitability.
The project features Style’s 96 x 12 mm pre-finished T&G range in Natural and Coffee colours. The product has been laid throughout all living and atrium areas. The product has been installed using Sika’s proprietary AcouBond full surface bonding and acoustic system. This method provided excellent sound dampening to meet the strict requirements for noise transmission in multi-residential construction.
Triptych, with its striking facade of 29 levels, contains innovative vertical villages and will feature a host of significant sustainable initiatives including water harvesting, passive engineering and co-generation. Along with Style renewable bamboo flooring, the project will certainly make a strong contribution in negating any impact on climate change.
Style branded products are independently certified by Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) and is Australia’s only eco-certified bamboo flooring. For designers, specifiers, the building community and consumers this internationally recognised environmental whole-of-life declaration is a major plus and provides scientifically credible information for sustainable development.
The GECA ecolabel is acknowledged by the Green Building Council of Australia and enables critical Green Star rating points to be awarded for sustainable developments, residential construction and fit-outs.
