SIS International School
Together with SN & Low architect, the designer ID Inc in-collaboration with our distributor we are put to test to work out an appropriate subfloor with floor finishing solutions to accommodate the school’s various flooring requirements. That was why Uzin was the preferred choice to participate for this project. Not only have we been able to provide them the right products from our extensive range but alsothe technical expertise to support ensuring reliability, efficiency and finally completion on the project with minimal disruption.
After much deliberation it was decided that the total flooring project scope of 5,000 square meters included all the primary and secondary school classrooms, school corridors, primary and secondary libraries, dance studio, art, music and drama suites, server rooms, a large multipurpose hall and the whole preschool area. It was also translated to us that we should come to an understanding on how we can accommodate some of the clients concerns including Malaysia’s high humidity environment where moisture is high, sub floor durability to ensure minimal maintenance in the future and to have a flat floor surface for aesthetic purposes and safety reasons.
PROVIDING SOLUTIONS OVERCOMING OBSTACLES
Hence the need of our two-component epoxy moisture barrier for all ground floor areas to make sure there won’t be moisture issues with the self-levelling subfloor and the finish vinyl flooring. As for the increase durability of the sub floor NC 149 self-levelling compound was utilized to not only provide them extra durability but to also ensure we achieve an overall flat subfloor surface. A higher overall thickness of the self-levelling subfloor was recommended for huge areas or areas with high and heavy activities such as the multipurpose hall. Not only the multipurpose hall function as a student gathering area for school functions, examinations but do also bear in mind it does contain an indoor basketball court with 3 badminton courts.
WORKING TOGETHER DELIVERING RESULTS
After working tirelessly in close collaboration with the architects, designers and both the structural main contractor and interior design main contractor we finally completed the project as planned. The clients are satisfied with the flooring and the school managed to initiate their intake accordingly.
