Your firm's role on the project: Altro provided flooring and walls for the hospital's behavioral health unit
Project Mission and Vision
Moser Pilon Nelson Architects worked with the hospital, selecting Altro Aquarius and Altro Whiterock for use throughout the unit. Altro Whiterock’s hygienic nature prevents water and moisture ingress, and its durable impact-resistance ensures a sledgehammer strike won’t even crack its panels. Other walls can break upon heavy impact, resulting in punctures and holes that can house unwanted bacterial tenants. With the increasing efforts to combat healthcare acquired infections in hospitals around the country, impact-resistant and hygienic wall products are essential.
For the bathrooms and other wet areas throughout the unit, the award-winning Altro Aquarius was specified for the floors, accompanied by Altro Whiterock hygienic wall panels on the walls. The ideal flooring for wet environments, Altro Aquarius is fit for both bare feet and shoes, providing excellent slip resistance in an area where slipping and falling is a major concern.
