Altro Orchestra was the preferred flooring choice for the remodelled teachers’ room at the Camilo José Cela University in Spain.

One of the most prestigious Spanish private universities, Camilo José Cela University (UCJC) was founded in Madrid in 2000, with its Campus Central, Madrid-Villafranca occupying more than 100,000 square metres of space.

The faculty room of the UCJC was recently remodelled, which also included the installation of new flooring. To meet the requirements for a resilient and decorative floor with good acoustic properties, Altro Orchestra was selected to replace the old floor. The light beige colour chosen for the project helped create a unified bright space, with comfort underfoot and 15dB impact sound insulation.

Miguel Ángel Fernández from the installation company AFER explains: “It has been a challenging job because of the size of the space, where 840 square metres of Altro Orchestra was installed. The existing floors were of various kinds and it was necessary to apply smoothing paste on the whole surface so that the base was completely flat. We are happy with the work done; the floor has been perfect and the product meets all expectations of the customer.”

Available from Altro Flooring and Walling, Altro Orchestra is a 2.85mm floor with a wear layer of 0.7mm. Properties such as underfoot comfort and noise reduction make this soft vinyl flooring ideal for busy corridors and classrooms in colleges and universities. Altro Orchestra is also suitable for rooms, common areas and corridors in hospitals, residences and care homes, as well as retail and social housing environments, especially in any area where comfort and sound reduction are important goals.

Altro Orchestra comes in a broad palette of 40 colours and designs varying from calming neutrals to vibrant shades, allowing you to create the right atmosphere every time. The flooring can also be coordinated with Altro Operetta and Altro Serenade for a complete look throughout.

José Álvarez Álvaro, manager of general services, Educational Institution SEK, observed that Altro Orchestra’s rapid installation, aesthetic appearance and noise reduction properties delivered an excellent design outcome, and recommended the product for similar environments, thanks to its value for money and very good finish.
