Taconic High School
Finished in fall 2018, this $120 million, 246,000-square-foot facility called for moisture mitigation and installation of resinous flooring in the bathrooms, locker rooms, training kitchen and cafeteria.
Rhode Island School of Design
Completed in August 2019, this $25 million, six-story, 40,800-square-foot project is the school’s first new residence hall in 34 years and the first project constructed with cross-laminated timber (CLT). With exposed wood in the ceiling and wood used as the structural floor, the CLT provides a distinctive look while speeding installation because of its light weight—it is about five times lighter than concrete, though its strength-to-weight ratio is comparable. “Installation time,” Haughey says, “was cut by 50 percent; from six to three days.”
Rhode Island Veterans Home
Finished in late 2017, this $121 million, 208-bed, 260,00-square-foot facility saw a Flooring Solutions crew provide shot blasting of concrete, application of a moisture-mitigation system and installation of a cement/polymer-based underlayment.
This three-phase, 260,000-square-foot project provides 136 public housing units as well as 137 units for workforce housing and market-rate housing. The project called for the installation of a gypsum underlayment system with a sound mat.
