Interface's Nora Rubber Chosen for Miami Field Hospital

Atlanta, GA, May 1, 2020-National, state and local governments partnered with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to convert 250,000 square feet of the Miami Beach Convention Center-nearly the size of five football fields-into a temporary field hospital. The $22.5 million project led by USACE, alongside RLF Architecture Engineering Interiors and construction firm Robins & Morton, involved the renovation of existing convention space into a 450-bed COVID-19 facility, freeing up hospital space across the state of Florida.

For this sizeable and urgent project, RLF selected nora environcare by Interface premium rubber flooring due to its inherent properties well-suited for healthcare spaces including durability, seamless installation and ability to mitigate infection control issues, as well as for Interface’s commitment to delivering product within an abbreviated timeframe.
