Contract interiors specialist Gradus has installed Cityscene carpet tiles at Spire hospital in Southampton as part of a major refurbishment project.

The private hospital specialises in cardiology, heart disease investigations and heart surgery and recently completed a major refurbishment of its oncology department, where Cityscene carpet tiles in Shale (Grey) were installed. The Cityscene carpet was chosen to complement the contemporary new interior and create a welcoming and comfortable environment for patients and staff.

Cityscene is particularly suitable for busy environments, which require a hardwearing flooring surface that will withstand heavy usage from foot and wheeled traffic, without compromising on aesthetics.

The range features an attractive textured loop pile design and is available in a choice of nine contemporary colours in tile format. The tiles can be installed either quarter turn, broadloom or brick bond providing a high level of style and versatility for a wide range of contract environments including commercial, education, healthcare and retail.

Karen Burman, Designer for Gradus Floorcoverings, comments: “Cityscene carpet tiles are ideal for a wide variety of contract environments, where a combination of design, colour and durability is important. With a choice of installation methods, the Cityscene range offers design versatility to specifiers and end users. 
“The Cityscene range is available with full LRV (light reflectance value) test reports to help specifiers achieve visual contrast with adjacent surfaces, in line with Disability Discrimination Act guidelines.”

Gradus offers a comprehensive range of nylon and polypropylene carpets.  Many of the Gradus floorcovering ranges now carry BRE environmental performance ratings for installation in education, healthcare, retail, office or multi-residential domestic buildings such as care homes and university accommodation.
