When choosing building materials to outfit the space, architects and arena officials considered the impact heavy foot traffic would have on the facility. Selected for its ultra-durability and simple maintenance regimen that omits the need for stripping and waxing, norament® grano appears throughout two main concourse levels. “The floor is important, as it is what all patrons see. The appearance and durability of the main flooring is key to a successful operation,” says Mike Deyermond, operations manager.
As an added benefit, the flooring’s slip resistant properties help ensure patron safety. After 15 years, the floor continues to perform and provide maintenance time and cost savings. “Overall, the floor has been very cost efficient,” says Deyermond, ”as the durability of the floor has exceeded expectations, reducing cost measures for replacement.”
