Our Hermes project – in the fashionable Yorkville neighbourhood of Toronto – was completed in 2017 and required hours of meticulous planning and measurement before work even began.
We started by installing plywood over the roughly 5,000 sq ft space, raising the floor to ensure the new wood and tile would lay flush. Next, engineered hardwood was nailed and glued down in a herringbone design, using borders to separate each and every section in the store. The borders involved absolute precision; following millwork measurements to ensure the borders beside the millwork showed in their entirety. What’s more, curved stone was cut to go around the millwork, exactly.
In 2019, at the brand’s Vancouver location, we completed a chevron floor installation using engineered hardwood over roughly 3,500 sq ft with borders to separate each section of the store. Prior to installing the hardwood, we installed cork subflooring to promote good thermal properties. In addition, we built a custom, engineered hardwood staircase. This involved screwing plywood on the metal stairs in order to prepare them for the finished steps.
Facilitated by Structure Corp, these projects demanded exceptional attention to detail and both we and the clients were amazed with the results.
