Tough, low-maintenance carpet tiles that come with strong green credentials

Forward-thinking office design like the new highly flexible B:Hive offices demands forward-thinking materials – Mohawk carpet tiles met the criteria

Mohawk Group carpet tiles were the green, durable architecture, furniture, office, white
Mohawk Group carpet tiles were the green, durable choice for the B:Hive offices at Smales Farm.

The new B:Hive offices at the redeveloped Smales Farm are a first for New Zealand in terms of their built-in flexibility for tenants. And they also reflect the latest green thinking, including the choice of environmentally responsible materials.

Mohawk Group modular carpet tiles from Premium Flooring were selected as they ticked several boxes for the modern fit-out. The closed-loop carpet tiles are hard-wearing and low maintenance – two vital factors given the high-traffic nature of the variously tenanted space. The highly durable tiles are designed to last a lifetime and will never stain.

And, of equal importance, the Mohawk Group carpet tiles at the B:Hive have strong green credentials in terms of their make-up and manufacturing. Certifications and transparency labels include Green Tag, Declare Labels, carboNZero certified transit, Environmental Product Declarations and Low VOCs.
