Origin at Spring Creek is a newly constructed senior lifestyle residence bordered by two spring-fed creeks, surrounded by the mountains of Canmore, Alberta, Canada. Not only does the residence offer picturesque views, but also life-enriching programs and amenities. The residence includes independent living and assisted living opportunities. Altro was selected throughout the residence, including the assisted living and memory care areas.

The team of Kerry McGregor, Manager, Interior Design and Decor Programs at Origin Active Lifestyles and Karin Kowalski, Registered Interior Designer IDC, ARIDO, the Principal of KKD Inc., contracted interior design company, thoughtfully selected multiple Altro products to be installed in the residence. The interior designer’s task of creating a safe, home-like space for the residents of Origin at Spring Creek lead her to Altro based on our reputation and wide range of products.

The main commercial kitchen and servery in the memory care section was outfitted with 272 square yards of Altro Walkway 20 Tundra and 68 panels of Altro Whiterock. The interior designer’s focus was on safety and hygiene in these areas. Altro enjoys the reputation of having the best kitchen finishes in the industry. Our integrated flooring and wall system creates an impervious environment by coving the flooring up the wall and integrating it with our wall panels. This method was used in the kitchen to help keep the area hygienic, water tight and make maintenance easier.

Altro Walkway 20 is our hugely popular, hard-wearing 2mm safety flooring. Altro Walkway 20 offers you two distinct looks; traditional and modern -- both looks come with Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR™ technology for superior cleanability and stain resistance.

Altro Whiterock – the hygienic alternative to tiles that’s impact resistant, grout-free and easy to clean. Its smooth surface makes it a top choice for kitchens and healthcare alike — in which sterile areas are of utmost importance.

In a versatile space of the dining room, 500 square feet of Altro Lavencia Plus Sequoia was chosen to create a warm, homey feel which ties in with the rest of the design of the facility. It also boasts fantastic durability and easy maintenance.

To maintain the homey, relaxing and peaceful ambiance of the spa and hair studio, 1,100 square feet of Altro Lavencia Contract Savannah Oak was selected. It also is easy to sweep up hair and keep clean.

Altro Lavencia offers amazingly realistic visuals in an array of sizes and finishes. With both glue down and adhesive free ranges available, odds are we have exactly what you had in mind. Great looks aside, Altro Lavencia’s outstanding performance is just what you can expect from Altro. High quality luxury vinyl planks and tiles specifically constructed to handle the tolls of busy environments.

Altro Wood Smooth Acoustic Farmhouse Oak was used in multiple spaces including the memory care dining room, lounge areas, fitness area, strength training area and movement studio. 550 square yards of the sheet flooring was used to promote safety and hygiene. The flooring in this area needed to be seamless, slip resistant, plus easy to clean. The interior designer went with the acoustic version because the flooring offers underfoot comfort and sound absorption.

This attractive wood-look smooth flooring has an easy to maintain surface, perfect for areas where aesthetics are the priority. Altro Wood Smooth Acoustic offers underfoot comfort and noise reduction with a sound absorption rating of 18dB. It is perfect for environments where sound reduction will improve the wellbeing of your users.

The assisted bath area required special attention because of the risk of slips and falls of the caregivers in this space. The interior designer selected Altro Aquarius Vole for the dual safety benefits of the residents and those assisting.

Altro Aquarius was developed for lasting performance in wet and dry environments, shoes or barefoot. Achieving a fantastic slip resistance value for barefoot use, Altro Aquarius provides optimum protection in both wet and dry environments. It’s a 2mm safety floor that has been extensively tested on a variety of shoe types to ensure top performance in a host of environments bathrooms, changing areas, pool decks. With Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR technology, it’s also easy to clean — putting it at the forefront of safety floor cleanability.

RGO Flooring, with offices in Canmore and Calgary, did a fantastic job installing the flooring throughout the residence. This project was sourced and supplied through Erv Parent, Altro’s distributor and longtime partner in Western Canada.
