Holy Cross Catholic Elementary School
“Mondo Harmoni 3mm flooring was installed. Its anti-bacterial, anti-microbial properties are not only beneficial on a health level but the attractive colors made for eye-catching designs as well.”
The Sudbury Catholic District School Board celebrated the grand opening of the Junior Kindergarten to grade six at the Holy Cross Catholic Elementary School in September 2012. Students, faculty and community members were pleased to see the state-of-the-art technology, eco-conscious design and equipment, vivid colors and a solar collection system that was incorporated on the roof of the new school. “With the modern technology and architecture, the Holy Cross Elementary School embodies the latest ideology for schools of the 21st Century,” says Denis Faucher, manager of facility services.
From the moment people walk through the front doors of the Holy Cross Catholic Elementary School, they know they are in a special place. “The main foyer is designed with an open atrium. And from the start, this has created a sense of pride and ownership for everyone,” says Faucher. “The foyer will act as the hub of all central activities and the numerous windows allow a perfect view into the adjacent lower gymnasium.” Wheelchair accessibility was also incorporated to all areas of the school.
In order to maintain a sanitary environment for the young students, Mondo Harmoni 3mm flooring was installed. Its anti-bacterial, anti-microbial properties are not only beneficial on a health level but the attractive colors made for eye-catching designs as well. Color cueing and large patterns were created to facilitate directions. From a budget stand point, the Mondo floor is low maintenance and it is environmentally friendly since there is no need for harsh chemicals in the cleaning process. This product is also eventually recyclable.”
