Kaleida Women’s and Children’s Hospital

Kaleida Women’s and Children’s Hospital

When Kaleida Women’s and Children’s Hospital replaced its floors, they needed flooring that could be installed with minimal downtime. They also wanted a “Green” floor — one that would be comfortable to walk on and in a style consistent with the designer’s vision. With FreeStyle™, the hospital’s maintenance crew was able to install directly over the existing ceramic floor quickly and cost effectively. To match the décor, a custom color was created and now they have a gorgeous, comfortable, environmentally friendly floor!
