Don Rowlands Centre

The Don Rowlands Centre at Karapiro, completed to be ready for the World Rowing Championships 2010, has used Shaw carpet tile for the main floor covering throughout the building. Designed by Chibnall Buckell Marovic Team Architects the building is owned by the Council and was designed to be a multi use facility for small to large social, business and sporting events. Therefore the floor covering needed to withstand the rigours of that environment and needed to also add to the community and cultural feel of the building sitting on the shores of the Waikato River.

The carpet tile used throughout is from Shaw's "Dressed to Kill" range. The design pattern is Vivid Shadow which is very high in style and almost brings the outdoors inside.
