Altro Wood, Altro Wood Acoustic, Altro Zodiac Smooth, Altro Walkway 20, Altro Quartz Tile, Altro Aquarius

Whether it came down to performance or aesthetics, Altro had this hospital covered. A member of the prestigious University of Maryland Medical System, the multiple awardwinning University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center (UM BWMC) recently renovated its space to increase the number of private patient rooms.

With the help of Freeman Architects specifying and contractor Solara Flooring installing, their latest endeavor brought in over 18,000 square feet of Altro flooring products to turn a former semi-private unit into a 24-bed private unit.

“We had specified Altro sheet flooring for other projects on the campus and they [the hospital] have been pleased with the products’ performance,” said Carol Freeman, Founder and Senior Partner at Freeman Architecture.

Altro Wood and Altro Wood Acoustic bring an attractive, sound-absorbent solution for the patient rooms and accommodation rooms; Altro Zodiac Smooth, Altro Walkway 20 and Altro Quartz Tile provide durable and finishes in the hallways and corridors; and the award-winning Alto Aquarius prevents slips and falls in the restrooms.

The UM BWMC has been in operation since 1965, and is open all hours, every day.

“They continue to be pleased with the product performance and aesthetic,” Freeman said.
