Changing realities continually reshape the building industry. Competitive pressures and economic constraints demand that knowledge of key trends and solid practices be applied to all aspects of construction. Whether a new building or restoration, the success of every enterprise, large or small, depends on carefully managed attention to detail.
The flooring system is a major cost element in any construction or restoration project. Floors are more complex than they appear. As part of the developer’s due diligence in value engineering it’s essential to analyze the design and specifications of flooring systems before work begins. Troubles after the fact can be economically disastrous. Flooring problems look unsightly may affect proper equipment functioning and compromise the integrity of an entire structure.
Huggins Wood Floor Specialists have a keen knowledge of concrete leveling and sub floor systems. In modern high-rise buildings, where sound attenuation has become a necessity, this expertise is essential to the success of the flooring installation. If the concrete slab isn’t leveled to a maximum deviation not exceeding 1/8 inch in any 10-foot radius, the floor may fail. As to the sub floor, creating an effective sound-deadening system requires know-how in combining the most appropriate materials and methods.
