Architect — Unispace



One of New Zealand’s fastest growing companies, Synlait, is an innovative milk processing business with a growing state-of-the-art processing facility located 25 minutes north of Ashburton in the heart of the Canterbury plains. Synlait produces a range of milk powder and nutritional products primarily for export.

Unispace have recently completed an impressive fit out of their new corporate office/administration block and have used GreenPad carpet tiles from Advance Flooring to stunning effect.

Utilising a mix of amazing colours from the Bordeaux range and the custom colour capability of the manufacturer, Steve Toomath of Unispace was able to reflect the spectacular ‘checkerboard’ scenery of the landscape outside.

Advance Flooring offer with GreenPad carpet tiles the ability to custom colour any of their ranges to suit the style and colour requirements of your project.

GreenPad carpet tiles are made from Sorona fibre which offers permanent stain resistance that’s built right into the fibre. Even tough stains like mustard, tomato sauce, coffee and red wine will not penetrate carpets made with Sorona. Carpets made with Sorona are bleach and UV resistant to reduce fading.

The unique structure of Sorona fibre makes carpet incredibly durable. Carpets made with Sorona resist crushing because the fibres are crush resistant and retain their shape and texture—step after step, year after year. This high level of carpet durability is perfect for commercial spaces.

GreenPad carpet tiles can help designers, architects and building owners achieve their sustainability goals with a fantastic looking product. Sustainably produced plant fibres such as maize make up 37% of Sorona fibre effectively revolutionizing the carpet tile industry by combining sustainability and performance benefits like never before.

With an increasing range of styles and patterns Advance Flooring are excited to be part of yet another inspired commercial flooring solution and combined with their experience of supplying flooring across New Zealand since 1976 have the ability to help you deliver a world class project.
