Best Branded Environments

Manistee Public Schools (MPS) in northern Michigan needed new flooring that not only represented their school, but also the northern Michigan way of life. Manistee is actually Ojibwe (an indigenous language) that stands for woods and waters, the epitome of northern Michigan lifestyle. MPS had decades old broadloom in their combined Middle and High School facility. HPS, in partnership with River City Flooring, chose products and a layout that would not only last, but speak to this famous "Up North" lifestyle. The school decided on J+J Kinetex for not only its durability and acoustic qualities, but also the design that it was able to achieve. Over 70,000sf of Umbra was expertly installed (while maintaining a modified parquet method throughout the entire facility), all while meeting the deadline for school to start. The blue colors in the Kinetex perfectly speak to the lakeshore outdoor life that is Manistee.

RCF removed all existing flooring and adhesives and installed a double skim coat of Uzin NC888.
