Mapei supplied their own brand products to make the substrates and to install wooden and textile floor coverings in the new Club House. The client specified that only products with characteristics of high quality, and eco-sustainability could be used. And Mapei was able to provide materials which were kind to both man and nature, to respect the original calling of this project.
For the dining area, the guest rooms and other areas, such as the shops and reception area (total surface area 1,100 m2), the preferred choice was wood, considered to be “warmer” and more elegant. In the areas where the wooden flooring was to be installed, the first step was to treat the surfaces with a coat of ECO PRIM T PLUS solvent-free acrylic primer in water dispersion with very low emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC), to improve adhesion of the levelling compound (manufactured and distributed on the German market). To eliminate the uneven areas and make the installation surface flat, a layer of PLANIPATCH cementitious skimming compound was applied.
Once this had dried, around 1.100 m2 of carpet was laid using ULTRABOND ECO S968 1K one-component, silylated polymer-based solvent-free adhesive with very low emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC).
Textile floor coverings were the preferred choice for the Fine Dining restaurant and hotel corridors. Decorative, hard-wearing, coloured carpet tiles were chosen for the restaurant, while for the corridors the designers proposed textile flooring characterized by an irregular pile pattern, similar to the bark of a tree. Even the fibres used to make the carpet are eco-sustainable and they are made from recycled PET water bottles.
ULTRABOND ECO 170 high-tack adhesive in water dispersion was used to bond the textile floor covering (400 m2).
MAPECONTACT H65 bi-adhesive strip was used to bond the skirting boards and profile pieces, which is available in various widths. To make the substrates perfectly flat, the surfaces had been previously skimmed with ULTRAPLAN ECO PLUS self-levelling, ultra rapid-hardening smoothing compound with very low emission of volatile organic compounds (manufactured and marketed on the German market by Mapei GmbH).
