Baptcare Wyndham Lodge by CHT Architects

Function Meets Beauty

Flooring provides critical support for the environments where we create communities in New Zealand. At Shaw Contract, we aim to make a Smarter Impact by creating products that enhance the human experience - from the resident to the care provider to the owner.

How Can Flooring Create Culture and Community?

The idea of ageing lifestyles in New Zealand has shifted from a singular mission of care, to creating communities. While the need for all levels of physical care will never cease to exist, these environments are being balanced by master plans to provide enhanced social connectedness, readiness of services, helpful technology and a focus on independence for residents. 

Whether the community is a high-density locale, a home suited for multiple generations, or a full continuing care retirement community, Shaw Contract flooring provides the foundation for all levels of public and living space. Our expertise brings beauty, value, and durability to these communities.

Influenced by Hospitality

Residents have many choices, and often the deciding factor lies in the look and feel of a community. These spaces are blending home and hotel, working to blend a tranquil space with a retreat oasis.

Solutions for Health 

and Well-Being

We design using the Cradle to Cradle® philosophy to focus on material health, material reutilization, renewable energy, and carbon management.

Installing our polish-optional LVT or sheet eliminates the need for stripping and waxing, keeping spaces operational during maintenance and cleaning.

Consideration of ergonomics, thermal comfort, and acoustics isn't just for the residents.

In an environment that provides care, safety is paramount. Falls are a common and devastating complication of long term living for elderly patients.

EcoWorx performance broadloom (EPBL) has a non-flow-through polymer backing that prevents moisture from ever reaching the subfloor.

Solution Q Extreme fibre has enhanced ability to resist soils and prevent acid-based stains, because the fibre has no dye sites available for acid-based stains to attach to the chemical structure
