Origin at Spring Creek

Altro offers comfort and safety to senior residence

Altro Aquarius, Altro Wood Smooth Acoustic, Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding

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 products were 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 were outfitted with Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding. The interior designer’s focus was on safety and hygiene in these areas. Altro enjoy the reputation of having the best kitchen finishes in the industry.

Altro Wood Smooth Acoustic in Farmhouse Oak was used in multiple spaces including the memory care dining room, lounge areas, fitness area, strength training area and movement studio. The flooring in these areas needed to be seamless, slip-resistant and 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. The interior designer selected Altro Aquarius for the dual safety benefits for the residents and those assisting them.

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.
