Sustainability Initiatives

FloorScore_SCS_4CWoodwright Hardwood Floor Company is proud to announce that the majority of our engineered wood flooring products have once again been carefully tested and re-certified as Floorscore®. Products bearing the Floorscore® label meet stringent indoor air quality emissions criteria needed for LEED v.4 EQc2 as well as many other green building schemes.

Today, more than ever before, designers and architects are on the hunt for quality floor coverings that meet their design intent, but that also address concerns of excessive VOC emissions. Floorscore® is the most recognized indoor air quality (IAQ) certification standard for hard surface flooring materials, adhesives, and underlayment’s including engineered hardwood.

Woodwright, based in Dallas, has found a unique way to assist the commercial architectural and design communities by combining our custom manufacturing capabilities along with our Floorscore® and FSC Certifications to offer “project specific” wood floors, plank walls and stair treads. Next on our sustainability agenda is a LEED v.4 compliant Health Product Declaration (HPD)! This will encompass a large amount of shop finished urethane floors and documentation for no-added formaldehyde (NAF) or ultra-low-emitting formaldehyde (ULEF).

Designer PagesIn addition to this renewal we are very excited to   announce that we are improving our visibility in the market place and are now widely represented on Designer Pages!

Going Beyond a Plank Wood Floor

Decorative wood floor elements, such as medallions, borders and inlays, can add authenticity to any commercial or residential space. They are the perfect blend of today’s innovation with the trends and traditions of the past.

In the early days, these decorative elements were hand-cut by by skilled craftsman. Today, we have machinery such as lasers and CNC machines to make the process faster. However, in the end though, it is still very much a partnership between the wood and the creative vision from the designers and craftsman. For Woodwright Hardwood Floor Company, the process of creating these medallions is very much a labor of love…..and patience.

We take the time to appreciate the unique characteristics of various species and cuts of wood and patiently craft design elements that enhance our projects. There is nothing more satisfying than melding the inherent beauty of a naturally rich grain pattern with the meticulous hand-crafting skills to exceed a client’s expectation.

While most people can agree on how beautiful a wood medallion is, there are few that fully understand the amount of work that goes into creating one. The process of making a medallion can take a few weeks to several months, involving painstaking hand assembly by highly skilled woodworkers with a passion for their craft. Get a glimpse of how we create a medallion by watching the time lapse video below:

Ask any wood floor installer and they will tell you that the most stressful part of the process is installing a decorative element. One small mistake could ruin hundreds of hours of work.

Whether you are restoring an older environment or looking to create a new space with lasting appeal, Woodwright can help with a full range of concept to completion services. You can view inspiration at our Pinterest page.

White Oak Stage

Transforming a Stage at Tobin Performing Arts Center

We recently had the pleasure of working with Tobin Center for Performing Arts and Gala Systems to install new hardwood floors in San Antonio, TX. This project was very unique in that the floor needed to transform into multiple configurations at the flip of a switch, for example from tiered auditorium seating to a flat open banquet room in a matter of minutes. You can view the transformation in this video.

In order to achieve the standards demanded by this project, we installed a custom white oak wood floor. The wood flooring is rift cut as to allow for a straight, linear grain appearance to achieve the architect’s desired intent In addition, the wood flooring was a combination of engineered and solid installed over a subfloor system that contained metal encased wood sleepers.

In terms of functionality, this was definitely one of our more unique wood floors. Though the installation was challenging, our team of construction professionals did what they do best and executed a flawless on time install.

Whether you need to create a moving floor, a laser cut medallion or a beautiful set of stairs, our methodical process and attention to detail can be a great asset to you. The work performed at Tobin Center for Performing Arts is a shining example of our “can do, will do” attitude and achievements.
