Tarkett’s Epoque Wood Flooring Offices
Tarkett’s Epoque engineered wood flooring has recently been specified for the new operations centre for Essex & Suffolk Water. Designed by FaulknerBrowns Architects, the new facility provides flexible and highly efficient office space for staff relocated from sites across Chelmsford. Tarkett’s Epoque Oak Nature engineered wood flooring creates a warm, welcoming environment in the atrium, where around 350 m2 have been installed by AC Flooring. Jacqui Martin, Senior Designer at FaulknerBrowns explained the choice: “The scheme required ‘natural’ finishes to complement the surrounding environment, as well as environmental qualities, and all floor finishes were specified with that in mind, including the wood, carpet and ceramic finishes in the atrium. Tarkett were easily best for value and quality. The oak is a strong theme of the interior scheme, included in the furniture as well as the staircase and flooring. There is even an Oak Meeting Room!’ Epoque is Tarkett’s premium engineered wood flooring collection, featuring a three-layer construction that provides excellent dimensional stability, eliminating 70 percent of the wood’s natural movement.
