Free building assessment offers cost savings and solutions
When designing a building, very often long term maintenance of the building is not given due consideration. Budget often plays a role in the design and build phase, and naturally gets allocated to the most project critical items. Maintenance teams, facilities managers and building owners are too often left with the ramifications once the building is occupied and the maintenance costs start adding up. In a lot of instances, materials or plans originally envisaged for a building do not perform as expected, and requires remedial action. It can be a daunting process and Polyflor has extended a simple, practical offer to the market.
Polyflor’s CEO, Tandy Coleman, says: “We would like to invite the industry to contact us for an obligation-free assessment and quote, to look at how we can help find practical solutions to help you maintain your interior. Be it damage to walls and doors or chipped corners, or if you simply need to understand how to protect your building from future damage or enhance your space, we are here to help you find practical solutions.”
“The reality is that often buildings function differently than originally designed. In these instances, we want to extend a helping hand to collaborate with our customers in finding viable alternatives to optimise the building or particular space for its intended use,” Tandy adds.
“Fortunately, wall protection is ideally suited for a retrofit installation, as it is much easier to specify once a building has been occupied for a while and the ‘problem’ areas have been identified. Collaboration with a fresh and expert eye means looking at the problem differently, offering unique or tailored solutions.
Benefits of wall protection
Wall Protection is designed to protect surfaces such as walls, corners and doors and provides an essential barrier against damage, helping to minimise the needs for ongoing repair and maintenance.
It drastically reduces maintenance costs and improves the overall appearance of an interior, whilst offering excellent surface protection, creating an impenetrable barrier to moisture and bacteria, along with resistance to impact damage. It also affords wonderful colour, design and wayfinding opportunities.
“The benefits are obvious but the challenge is to motivate the spend. The simplest way to do this would be to do a cost comparison, looking at maintenance costs vs the investment in the wall protection. Materials, labour as well as the time and cost to relocate occupants to facilitate downtime should all be factored into this equation,” concluded Tandy.
