Copenhagen Psychiatric Hospital Denmark
30,000 m2 of environmentally friendly and durable floors
A lot of walking is done throughout a hospital, and when Region Zealand was to build Copenhagen's new psychiatric hospital, Denmark's most modern of it's kind, it opted to supply 30,000 of the hospital's total area of 44,000 m2 with the most modern and long-lasting flooring available. The flooring is super environmentally friendly - see more below - and 100% Danish. These outstandingly durable floors are made up of a 6-7 mm thick polyurethane.
Process management, layout and quality assurance
As a flooring contractor, Ulfcar® took over the raw concrete floors and the initial task was then to lay out concrete and mortar so that the floors were aligned and ready for the final flooring. Ulfcar® takes care of it's own process management and quality assurance, while the actual work on laying the floor coverings is outsourced to local partners and subcontractors. Ulfcar® can thus, as one of few Danish flooring contractors, carry out major tasks such as laying 30,000 m2 of floors in patient rooms, walking and living areas, kitchens and canteens and more than 5,000 m2 of walking areas. To illustrate the extent of the assignment it is worth mentioning that more than 16 km of alumni lists were set up.
The floors comply with strict German environmental standards
JAKON, one of Denmark's largest craft companies, was responsible for the internal outfitting of the hospital. Thus it was JAKON who chose Ulfcar® as supplier of environmentally friendly floors. In the reference material JAKON used the German environmental standard which pertains to constituents, the production of the floors and the eventual disposal hereof. Ulfcar® fully complied with this standard. Ulfcar® was also the cheapest. That the Polycrete® SL Comfort is also durable, comfortable to walk on and easy to maintain and clean came as additional benefits. Ulfcar® is the only company in Denmark to produce its own products as Ulfcar®'s sister company Nivapol produces and develops raw materials for the floors.
Free of joints
Polycrete® SL Comfort is a void-free and very comfortable PU coating (polyurethane) with silencing properties. In addition, the floor is free of joints where dirt and bacteria can be lodged, and the flooring prevents cracking.
