Public Spaces that Serve

We make a Smarter Impact with accessible products that can honour the overall design intent, from focused government workspaces to vibrant library & community centres. 

How Can Flooring Build Community?

The places we come together are the places where communities are formed. The spaces we gather in demand a thoughtful, insightful approach that considers movement, logistics, funding and a broad spectrum of usage.

Shaw Contract provides the product and expertise to design for communities in every kind of public space – libraries, airports, convention centres and government offices. Community by design.
