BLENNZ Homai Campus

The brief from BLENNZ to ASC Architects was to create a green 'five star' building.  To ensure that the floor coverings complied ASC chose Tarkett Linoleum and Shaw Carpet tiles which both carried the ECNZ accreditation (note, neither of these are currently in ECNZ, but have other Green Star compliant eco-labels) and the Regupol Everroll rubber flooring, which has GECA.  This allows maximum points for materials in the Green Star Rating tool.

ASC Architects also needed to select lighter colours on the floor to comply with the Green Star 'light reflectance' criteria.  Three different ranges from the Shaw Carpet tile collection were chosen to delineate different working areas - Diffuse, Gradient and In a Snap.
