Missouri Floor Co. recently completed an installation of a new wood athletic floor in the gym at Arthur Christian School. What started as a simple phone conversation about budgets for a floor in their facility turned into a beautiful project within a years time. It’s always a good feeling to be part of a great plan that comes together.
After water damaged the existing wood gym floor at the nearby U City Rec Center, Missouri Floor Company was called to evaluate the damage. Within 24 hours we were there to begin monitoring the damage. The floor ended up being a total loss which only started the process for further losses to the Owner due to the gym being shut down during replacement.
We got creative using features available in the industry (Robbins XLplus “presanded” maple) and our crews committed to overtime to help expedite the process. The floor was turned back over to the Owner more than a week early to get them back in action! A big “Thank You” goes out to the facility for choosing Missouri Floor Company to tackle the project.
The new Gary M. Sumers Recreation Center for Wash U now has 7 different types of Robbins flooring installed to suit the multiple needs and uses of the facility. Surfaces covered included an Indoor Running Track, 3 Court Gymnasium, Fitness Rooms, Weight Rooms, Locker Rooms, and much more. Listed below is a time lapse video on the 3 Court Gym…
Due to the various types of flooring and uniqueness of the facility, we entered the project in the Robbins Sport Surface of the Year competition. The Center was recently named as a finalist and we’re hoping to bring home a victory….
The project had an expedited schedule and construction issues that arise when working on a large project, but was overall enjoyable. It was a win for all involved and we are honored to be have played a part. There are more photos to come of the facility, check back soon.
We completed the wood gym floor in the Gymnasium Addition at the O’Fallon, IL YMCA branch this past week. Listed below is a picture of the progress through the painting of the gamelines. This tends to be the fun part of the project where the Owner has a chance to customize the floor to their wants and needs.
Missouri Floor Company and Robbins Sport Surfaces have enjoyed a strong relationship with the YMCA’s over the years and consider it an honor to install floors in their facilities.
Missouri Floor was called to a local early childhood development school over a year ago to start planning for a better alternative to the existing gym surface. After discussing the use and expectations of the Owner, it was decided a Robbins Pulastic sport surface would be a great solution. The Owner began budgeting for the improvements and a year later had us set up to start.
The cushioned shock pad and poured layer create a comfortable “seamless” material that provide a safe and sanitary surface for the children. All the materials are VOC friendly and designed to pass the toughest standards in the Country (CA).
The multi-colored topcoat was decided on to give the kids a “field of play”. Robbins Pulastic floors have a range of colors available that can be used for just about any design.
The Owner was looking for something unique that guests would remember as they enter the home. It’s safe to say they succeeded here with the beautiful entry floor! The custom wood design used red oak to match other wood flooring in the home and added a walnut feature strip accent.
Once concern of the Owner’s was how everything would “flow” with the other wood areas. A common stain was used to bring everything together and as a highlight, it brought out the walnut feature strip.
Everyone’s home lays different so don’t hesitate to call for us to come see what we can do in yours today!
It’s not everyday you come across a “Home Court” but we’re adding this one to our list. Another successful installation by our crews.
We installed a Robbins Pulastic Classic 90 in this home gym as a practice and play facility for the Owner. It gives new meaning to telling the kids to “Go shoot some hoops!”
A roof leak over the past year caused damage to a local high school where a repair followed by a sand and finish of the floor was required to fix the damage. We were called out to inspect and present options for the Owner after the floor began showing signs of moisture. Once the source was determined and fixed, we were there working on the solution!
Select white oak strip was installed throughout the Kitchen, Breakfast, & Dining Rooms while the Foyer was highlighted with a rift & quartersawn cut material in a “herringbone” pattern.A mild brown stain was used throughout for a uniform appearance and finished off with an oil modified polyurethane. Due to the abundant amount of natural light entering the room, texture of the “handscraped” material, and overall use we decided on a satin sheen for the finish.
When selecting a “job finish” like this to your wood floor you have the flexibility of not only the stain color, but also the sheen of the finish product.
From Eureka College (Illinois) this past summer to Eureka High School (Missouri) this winter. Many saw the effects the flood waters brought to the high school wood gym floors this past December.
The District responded within hours of the water receding and we were there when the phone rang. Plans and action started immediately with the goal in mind of getting things back to normal for the students. The kids being able to play a game on the new floor this season was a “long shot” at best when the wood floor was being delivered, but this past week it became a reality. It took organization, hard work, and communication by all. In an emotional project like this it goes beyond being another floor. Missouri Floor Company was proud to play part in it all. Congrats to the Girls team for breaking the floor in with a WIN!!!
We are set to finish up the wood floor in Gym B this week and will follow through with the floors in the Aerobic & Wrestling Areas in the next couple weeks. Pictures will follow…
