JUNCKERS' SOLID OAK SPRUNG FLOORING IS THE PERFECT OPTION FOR ERNE CAMPUS AUDITORIUM
The Erne Campus of South West College is the world’s first educational – and currently the largest – Passive House Premium rated building. The 8,000sqm campus boasts a large PV array providing renewable energy generation of 120 Kwh/m2/year, along with ultra-modern facilities for 2,800 students. It is the first UK building to achieve both PHP status and BREEAM outstanding accreditations.
Junckers, Europe’s leading manufacturer of solid wood flooring, was the ideal choice to provide
a performance floor for South West College’s new Erne Campus auditorium. Hamilton Architects specified the 22mm Oak Classic Ultra Matt sprung floor to fulfill the architects’ aesthetic and
functional vision for the multipurpose room. The design included a reinforcement of the undercarriage to cope with heavy loads during the life of the floor.
Commenting on the completed project, Declan Dolan, Country Manager for Junckers Ltd said, “It was great to work with Project Manager Donal McGloin and the Tracey Brothers team on such
a prestige project in their hometown of Enniskillen. As usual, the planning, early construction and programme meetings ensured everything ran smoothly when the timber floor system arrived on site.
“Kevin Carlin from Classique managed everything on the site including site conditions, floor levels and moisture testing. Paul and the Classique installation team demonstrated their attention to
detail and excellent workmanship once again.
“It is an outstanding achievement for this project to be the first educational building to be certified to the Passivhaus Premium standard. Caring for the environment is central to our business, as we all work towards a net zero carbon future. We continue to develop our sustainability, certification and
compliance and have recently launched the Join the Collab with Nature initiative that can be found on our website,” added Declan.
Junckers is the only manufacturer that can complement its range of solid hardwood floors with a range of ownproduced woodcare products for regular maintenance and renovation of wooden floors.
