Sustainability is becoming increasingly embedded in the DNA of companies. Not only at Bolidt, but also at many of its customers. A good example is modern family business elk®, which specialises in the improvement and sustainable maintenance of existing real estate for professional clients. From major renovations to everyday maintenance. Bolidt installed the flooring in elk®’s new, completely renovated headquarters, with the main focus being on sustainability.
elk® sets great store by sustainability and being a good employer. In the renovation of the building, the concept of circularity took central stage. Thus, when it came to choosing the flooring, elk® wanted a solution that was as sustainable as possible. That meant flooring that is not produced using new raw materials, but consists exclusively of recycled materials. Bolidt was happy to take up that challenge.
The renovated building consists of two levels. The flooring on the ground level is truly remarkable, both in appearance and origin. It is the first flow-applied flooring produced in Europa that is made entirely from recycled materials.
The wooden wall along the entire length of the ground floor is made from strips of leftover wood and therefore sustainable too. Other striking features are the green wall, the attractive canteen with re-used kitchen units and the staff relaxation area. The upper level contains the open and transparent office spaces, decorated according to ergonomic principles. The central landing is practically used as a corridor-cum-meeting-place and has also been fitted with a Bolidt flooring system. The offices and meeting rooms on either side are furnished with cradle to cradle, particulate-absorbing carpeting.
Hélène van Pinxteren of elk®: “The flooring installed by Bolidt covers the ground floor, where we receive visitors and where our canteen is located.
The ground floor is used intensively. Upstairs, the flooring features in our central landing. Here, we have a kitchen area and a tall table with stools, where all disciplines within the company meet one another.”
“The collaboration with Bolidt went very well. Our philosophy is ‘no hassle’ and that is also what we experienced in working with Bolidt. They took on our request and translated it into a beautiful solution, without any ifs and buts. Bolidt’s people proactively and enthusiastically started working on our challenge and showed themselves more than willing to contribute ideas and translate wishes into a concrete solution. The specialists who installed the flooring also provided excellent input. They even involved us in the application of the floor, enabling us to make adjustments during the process. So, very customer centric!”
