Justin Raath, Director of HTB Journey says, “Selecting Net Effect for me was an essential choice as today there is so much smoke and mirrors about sustainable design. With Net Effect there are no grey areas. There is no doubt that these tiles actually contribute immensely to making a difference to our oceans and communities affected by marine life”.
HTB Journey believes that in the Hospitality industry, flooring plays an important role in the overall identity of an establishment. A hotel’s sense of luxury, its character, relevance as well as its cleanliness, to a large extent, is achieved through the flooring. Each corridor of the President Hotel has unique murals depicting South Africa’s culture, flora and fauna, landscape and oceans. The flooring compliments this beautifully and ensures that as soon as guests step from the lift lobby area onto the Vanguard Vinyl tiles and look down the “ocean” corridors, they know they are in an establishment that has put a lot of thought into its design, which is quietly elegant and true to its origins.
ShaunShaun Kark, director of Prologik, which specialises in hospitality project procurement and who project managed the various parties involved in the President Hotel’s new flooring installation, says his company’s brief was to complete the project on time, and create cost savings. This was achieved through thorough cost analysis, negotiations and a review of the total supply chain, from origin to completion, both of these targets were met.
