Founded in Cape Cod, Massachusetts in 1994, Saint Margaret Regional School has dedicated itself to providing its community with high-quality education.
The facility offers an impressive variety of benefits to elementary students ranging from pre-k to grade four including before and after-school care, pre-school and kindergarten programs, family events and faith-based service projects.
When considering flooring for academic applications, the ability to withstand student traffic and severe New England winters while maintaining an attractive appearance is essential. Saint Margaret’s principal, Beth Mahoney, prioritized these qualities when viewing options for the school’s recent renovations. “We were looking for something that would be practical for an elementary school,” she explained. “We wanted it to be colorful, durable and easy-to-clean.”
Saint Margaret’s search for the ideal flooring solution ultimately led them to choosing Altro Lavencia LVT for the job. Constructed to handle the tolls of busy environments, Altro Lavencia luxury vinyl tiles and planks balance beautifully realistic visuals with outstanding durability.
Unlike standard vinyl composition tile (VCT) alternatives, Altro Lavencia LVT offers attractive, easily installed designs with reduced maintenance and refurbishing costs over time. In Saint Margaret’s situation, this was particularly important to Mrs. Mahoney and her fellow faculty members. “We liked the tile application so if we had to replace an area, it would be cost effective and timely for a school schedule.”
To complete their design, the school combined three different colors of Altro Lavencia Plus to rejuvenate its corridors: Seagrass Red, Seagrass Blue and Seagrass Yellow. “The faculty and staff are grateful that we went with Altro and this flooring. It is exactly what we were looking for to enhance the beauty of the school,” Mrs. Mahoney concluded.
