Flooring For An Empowered 

New Zealand Workforce

How can we make a Smarter Impact in the workplace? By optimising flooring for employee well-being and productivity, we’re transforming the modern office into an adaptive, generative space.

What if Flooring Could Redefine the 

New Zealand Workspace?

The nature of work is evolving in New Zealand, and innovative businesses are re-imagining spaces to create more flexible, healthier environments in which their teams can thrive. Floor plans have opened up, collaboration is an architectural directive, and versatility has become synonymous with scalability. Workplaces have emerged as adaptive, dynamic spaces that advance a company’s culture and values.

Shaw Contract’s human-centric approach creates positive design innovations to meet the needs of an evolving global workforce. Our suite of Cradle to Cradle Certified™ flooring products create professional environments that attract the right talent and help people do their best work. By optimising for employee well-being and productivity, we’re helping transform the modern office into a rewarding workspace.

Featured Workplace Collections

Community is a collective of four complementary products designed to layer and integrate with one another, lending themselves to a variety of flooring solutions.

Dye Lab tile draws inspiration from natural dyes and mimics the colour shifts rendered in naturally dyed textiles, creating an elegant and unpredictable visual.

The Haven collection reimagines home as a mood, an idea, a quality of comfort and familiarity that feeds our instinctual desire to feel grounded in the world.

Defined by strength and tempered by texture, Concrete & Composed resilient flooring is constructed with innovative COREtec® XRC technology.

The Floor Architecture collection is constructed with nuanced colour and punctuated with realistic imprints, making a strong design statement.

Combining hard surface durability with soft surface aesthetics, reThink woven LVT is a hybrid floor covering with utilitarian purpose and textile appeal.

Create a Sense of Place 

Diverse spaces require diverse solutions. As a total flooring solutions provider, Shaw Contract offers a wide range of products including resilient, broadloom, carpet tile, rugs, and accessories. Layer them together to create warmth and texture in a holistic experience.
