Brigham & Women’s Hospital
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) includes 150 outpatient practices with over 1,200 physicians. BWH serves patients from New England, across the USA, and 120 countries around the world. The Building for Transformative Medicine, a state-of-the-art research and clinical space, needed a timely and effective solution for over 280,000 square feet (26,000 m2) of new flooring.
With the need for a reduced cure time for the concrete floors, PSP recommended a wait time of only five days by using VB 225. This vapor mitigation system is specially formulated to prevent floor failures on concrete substrates containing elevated levels of moisture vapor emission. PRIMER STX 100, a bonding agent, was used to prepare the floors for the subsequent layer of LEVELINE 15, a self-leveling underlayment that provided a level and flat surface prior to the installation of the final flooring, a Nora rubber flooring system.
