Tarkett flooring used in Dublin hospital refurbishment


Mater Misericordiae University Hospital revamp features seven Tarkett flooring solutions

One of Ireland’s biggest hospitals has been refurbished with 35,000sq m of Tarkett flooring.

Mater Misericordiae University Hospital in Dublin has been renovated with more than seven different types of Tarkett flooring, selected for use in the project which was overseen by the Sisk Group and project manager, Pat Tierney.

Tarkett iQ Toro SC flooring was used in the 12 new operating theatres due to its static dissipative properties.

The flooring is made specifically for use in areas that need to remain free from static electricity and as well as being 100% recyclable, it boasts the best lifecycle costs on the market.

Other products used in the development included Tarkett’s Linoleum Veneto xf and Etrusco xf in the corridors and ward bedrooms; non-slip Tarkett Safetred Universal for the toilets and sluice rooms; and Tarkett Granit Multisafe in the en-suite bathrooms and wetrooms.
