LEED Gold Certified - Home & Hospice Care of RI | leed flooring

LEED Gold Certified – Home & Hospice Care of RIPosted: Jun 2010 Posted by: Mats Inc.

One year ago this month, Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island opened its new LEED Gold Certified facility at 1085 North Main Street in Providence. The strategy for LEED certification included using 95% of the existing building, using recycled and regionally produced materials, recycling construction waste, filtering rain water and using power from renewable sources. The modern, 50,000 square foot facility was designed with particular attention to safety and comfort.




Dual Track

To ensure the interior would remain safe and clean, the design team recommended a CleanZone™ entrance system from Mats Inc.  Dual Track was chosen for the vestibule of the main entrance for its attractiveness, durable cross-bolt construction, superior scraping and moisture absorbing performance and ability to resist harsh New England weather.  Mats Inc. delivered Supreme Nop entrance matting in tweed brown for the zone 3 areas, such as the lobby and ambulatory entrance, to complete the CleanZone™ system.

Supreme Nop

“We have visitors 24/7 which means lots of use”, stated Joan Mignacca, Director of Facilities & Material Management.  “They have withstood terrible weather and conditions and they still look good after a year of wear and tear.”

Mats Inc. entrance systems can contribute to LEED MR Credit 4 Recycled Content (1-2 points), MR Credit 5 Regional Materials (1-2 points), and IEQ Credit 5 Indoor Air Pollutant & Source Control (1 point).
