The Melomed Hospital Holdings in Richards Bay is due to be completed in July 2017. The architect, Ruben Reddy Architects, needed flooring products for the 14 300m² that would meet the unique list of criteria for healthcare facilities.

Dee Naicker from FloorworX presented a range of flooring solutions that not only met but also surpassed the performance requirements from the client. Additionally, the aesthetic properties of the chosen products are set to ensure that the new hospital in KwaZulu-Natal looks completely different to any other health care establishment in the country.

“I presented products to the client that are unique and have specific qualities to meet the requirements of a healthcare environment. The products showcased have advanced technology and are exclusive to FloorworX,” says Dee.

One of the challenges that Dee experienced on the project was finding products that fitted into the budget while still having the unique properties suitable for the application. To overcome this challenge, Dee worked closely with the professionals that were involved in this project and ensured that work undertaken was within the set perimeters.

“This experience has shown me how important it is to really understand the client’s requirements and share their vision. The result is a hospital that everyone on the project team can be proud of,” comments Dee.
