Big River Group floor­ing lays foun­da­tion for dis­play home win

Australasian Timber - - FLOORING -

BRING­ING THE warmth and beauty of na­ture into the home, tim­ber floor­ing cre­ates an invit­ing tone from the mo­ment the front door opens. It is this wel­com­ing feel which saw Big River Group’s New Gen­er­a­tion Ar­mour­floor en­gi­neered floor­ing se­lected for GJ Gard­ner Homes’ award-win­ning Man­dalay dis­play home in the new North Har­bour De­vel­op­ment, Burpen­gary East, Queens­land.

As the win­ner of the HIA-CSR Queens­land Hous­ing Award for Best Dis­play Home in Bris­bane, the Man­dalay dis­play home de­sign utilises the warm, unique char­ac­ter and stun­ning beauty of tim­ber floor­ing to great ef­fect by ac­cen­tu­at­ing the home’s fo­cus on blend­ing in­door and out­door liv­ing. The in­no­va­tive de­sign sees sep­a­rate liv­ing zones wrap around a cen­tral out­door area, which max­imises nat­u­ral light and cool­ing cross­breezes across the spa­ces, and is topped off by a stun­ning al­fresco area – ideal for en­ter­tain­ing all-year-round.

Through­out the home is Big River Group’s pre­fin­ished Aus­tralian hard­wood en­gi­neered floor­ing in Spot­ted Gum, set­ting the foun­da­tion for the en­tire in­te­rior. To­gether with its vis­ual ap­peal, the floor­ing so­lu­tion is se­lected by builders and home­own­ers for its dura­bil­ity and sta­bil­ity.

Not just a hard­wear­ing floor­ing choice, Ar­mour­floor is also stylish and com­ple­ments the light and airy in­te­rior of the home de­sign. With a fo­cus on cool whites, soft neu­trals, vi­brant greens and wood ac­cents – the lush nat­u­ral Queens­land en­vi­ron­ment is per­fectly hon­oured through the in­te­rior decor.

Cre­ated us­ing five lay­ers of Aus­tralian eu­ca­lypt hard­wood sheets bonded to­gether to form a solid, sta­ble floor­board. The sheets have its grain aligned at right-an­gles to the next, cre­at­ing an ex­tremely sta­ble struc­ture. It’s this spe­cial process that guar­an­tees sta­bil­ity be­tween floor­boards and re­duces the risk of bend­ing and cup­ping.

Dura­bil­ity was an im­por­tant con­sid­er­a­tion for ma­te­ri­als used in the Man­dalay dis­play home, with the North Har­bour de­vel­op­ment an ideal des­ti­na­tion for young fam­i­lies, and with the de­vel­op­ment be­ing lo­cated in sunny Queens­land dura­bil­ity is key.

Not only is Ar­mour­floor the ideal floor­ing op­tion for air-con­di­tioned en­vi­ron­ments and over­heated slabs, it will also re­main sta­ble near pa­tio doors and floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows. Along­side the hard­wear­ing wa­ter-based clear coat­ing, Big River’s pre-fin­ished floor­ing comes with a 20-year lim­ited war­ranty against wear-through un­der nor­mal res­i­den­tial us­age, en­sur­ing it is up to the test for sur­viv­ing day-to-day fam­ily liv­ing.
