Any renovation completed within The Art Institute of Chicago must adhere to the highest standards. The Bahr Company, with its corporate office in Romeoville, IL and an architect and designer showroom in Chicago, supplied the subfloor products needed for the project. With over 40 years of flooring installation experience and a reputation for integrity, craftsmanship, and sustainability, Mr. David’s Flooring International, Ltd. was chosen for this important project. Schönox products were used to renovate and prepare the subfloor.
With so much history, careful attention to detail was required when a portion of the South Carolina State Museum was recently renovated. One hundred plus year old subfloors were an early concern in the project.
During the renovation of Cincinnati Children’s Healthcare Space, contractors were faced with old, uneven concrete substrates in need of repair and leveling. Schönox VD was used to prime the existing concrete before applying Schönox AP self-leveling subfloor material.
When preparing commercial office space at the Minneapolis Grain Exchange, contractor, Sonus Interior, was faced with old wood floors with heavy amounts of carpet glue. Schönox SHP, AST, & AP were used to prime, patch and repair, and apply a final subfloor suitable for any flooring product.
Commercial office space in the Massey Building of Birmingham, Alabama has undergone renovations for the future site of Iberia Bank. Contractors were met with an existing concrete substrate with a 3” deep cavity, contaminants throughout the space with standard gypsum in areas, and former patches and repaired areas. Schönox SEZ Plus, VD Primer, and Schönox US with roughly 60% sand aggregate added, then a final pour of Schönox US were products used to repair and prep the subfloor for ceramic tile.
The home owner at this project site wanted her carpet, wood, and ceramic floors replaced. As such, several subfloor issues were encountered. A variety of Schönox products were used to successfully address those issues in an efficient and cost effective manner.
