Sustainable self-smoothing floors at museumplein C-City, Kerkrade

In October 2015 three museums on the Museumplein in Kerkrade were opened to the public. The Cube design museum, Columbus earth theatre and the Connector join to the existing Continium Discovery Center and stand out by their special architecture. During construction, sustainability, low energy consumption and a high-quality finish were the priorities.

Each day several thousands of visitors arrive at the C-City museum. A sustainable Arturo PU self-smoothing floors was used in the restaurant, kitchen, all meeting rooms and all public areas. The floors were installed by Interbase from Beek en Donk.

“Over 2,000 m² of Arturo PU2060 Self-smoothing Floor in white/green (restaurant), light grey (kitchen) and agate grey (meeting rooms) were instaled”, explains Jeroen Strecker, Arturo Brand Manager at UZIN UTZ Nederland. “All floors are finished with a wear-resistant, pigmented Arturo PU7900 Sealer, that further enhances the attractive appearance, safety, life span and cleanability of the floors. The sealer also adds a UV-resistant layer so no discolouration will occur in the future. The result is a sustainable, clean and seamless floor that can certainly take a knock.”
