Hoop dreams at Syracuse University made possible with nora® Flooring

Hoop dreams at Syracuse University made possible with nora® Flooring

Syracuse officials selected nora rubber flooring for run-off areas around the basketball courts, corridors, gathering areas outside locker rooms, food service areas, entranceways and other vestibules. Those planning the facility considered polished concrete for areas around the courts, until some of the coaches and staff expressed safety concerns about footing and potential for slipping and injury.

The durable, slip-resistant nora flooring not only helped allay fears of potential mishaps, but it also provided enhanced acoustic properties and resiliency to stand up to traffic in the busy, highly used facility. Couple those benefits with the low-maintenance practices that save custodial staff time, and Syracuse is experiencing a facility that continues to look nice, even with the presence of constant traffic and infrequent maintenance.

By using a no-wax flooring option that reduces VOC emissions and contributes to good indoor air quality, Syracuse University is showing its commitment to using environmentally responsible materials in their buildings. “Sustainability is a campus-wide initiative for us in all of our athletic facilities,” added Peter Sala, Senior Associate Director of Athleticsfor Facilities Syracuse University.

From the beginning, Teresa Crooke, interior designer, Syracuse University Campus Planning, Design and Construction, was confident that nora rubber flooring would come through in terms of aesthetics and performance, but she has seen added benefits as well. “I’ve noticed that the nora flooring has also contributed to great acoustics in the building, which just enhances its impact on the project. I’m very happy with the floor—it’s performing very well and aesthetically, it looks great.”
