Front Range Community College

Front Range Community College and nora® Flooring Work in Perfect Harmony

Front Range Community College’s Larimer Campus in Fort Collins, CO, is part of the largest community college in the state of Colorado. The college offers more than 100 degree and certificate programs, while serving more than 32,000 students on an annual basis. The school’s Harmony Library is a joint-use facility operated by the college and the Poudre River Public Library District. It serves roughly half a million local visitors each year. more

The renovation of Harmony Library on the Front Range Community College campus was designed to open up the facility for better traffic flow, while also providing high-traffic areas with improved durability and greater acoustic qualities, ensuring a more enjoyable experience for students, staff and residents who visit the space. By replacing slate in high-traffic entrance areas with norament® serra, the library is a quieter facility that offers patrons a higher degree of slip resistance. Carts can be maneuvered freely and easily throughout the space without causing noisy disruptions to study sessions and casual readers. Aesthetically, the flooring’s landscape, textured look is flattering to the eye of entrants, with the ability to help hide normal wear and tear over time while offering low maintenance requirements. For a building that welcomes a large number of guests, the expanded and renovated facility can now more adequately service the growing needs of the students of Front Range Community College and the residents of Fort Collins and its surrounding towns.
