Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital
The new Oakville hospital is a state-of-the-art healthcare facility. The LEED certified project boasts 35,000 sq. feet of epoxy terrazzo floor, cove base and a monumental staircase.
The interior design was based on the existing natural environment, specifically the nearby 16 Mile Creek. The blue and grey tones represent water and stone, while the pattern is reminiscent of the movements of the creek. The concept required combining 10 different colours of epoxy terrazzo, recycled glass and mirror chips. The terrazzo system also included a moisture mitigation membrane and full coverage crack isolation membrane. One-eighth-inch zinc divider strips contributed to the conceptual pattern of flowing water.
