Big River Group’s new-generation Armourfloor engineered flooring has created an inviting tone for the award-winning Mandalay display home.

Bringing the warmth and beauty of nature into the home, timber flooring creates an inviting tone from the moment the front door opens. It is this welcoming feel which saw Big River Group’s new-generation Armourfloor engineered flooring selected for GJ Gardner Homes’ award-winning Mandalay display home in the new North Harbour Development, Burpengary East, Queensland.

As the winner of the HIA-CSR Queensland Housing Award for Best Display Home in Brisbane, the Mandalay display home design utilizes the warm, unique character and stunning beauty of timber flooring to great effect by accentuating the home’s focus on blending indoor and outdoor living. The innovative design sees separate living zones wrap around a central outdoor area, which maximizes natural light and cooling cross-breezes across the spaces, and is topped off by a stunning alfresco area – ideal for entertaining all-year-round.

Throughout the home is Big River Group’s prefinished Australian hardwood engineered flooring in spotted gum, setting the foundation for the entire interior. Together with its visual appeal, the flooring solution is selected by builders and homeowners for its durability and stability.

Not just a hard-wearing flooring choice, Armourfloor is also stylish and complements the light and airy interior of the home design. With a focus on cool whites, soft neutrals, vibrant greens and wood accents – the lush natural Queensland environment is perfectly honoured through the interior decor.

Created using five layers of Australian eucalypt hardwood sheets bonded together to form a solid, stable floorboard. The sheets have its grain aligned at right-angles to the next, creating an extremely stable structure. It’s this special process that guarantees stability between floorboards and reduces the risk of bending and cupping.

Durability was an important consideration for materials used in the Mandalay display home, with the North Harbour development an ideal destination for young families, and with the development being located in sunny Queensland durability is key.

Not only is Armourfloor the ideal flooring option for air-conditioned environments and overheated slabs, it will also remain stable near patio doors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Alongside the hardwearing water-based clear coating, Big River’s pre-finished flooring comes with a 20-year limited warranty against wear-through under normal residential usage, ensuring it is up to the test for surviving day-to-day family living.
