A marketable interior with long-term value

Our Luxury Vinyl Tiles feature throughout Vita Living Apartments. Upon completion of the development, more than 50,000 m² of Belgian-made Luxury Vinyl Tiles will be installed throughout living areas, corridors and amenity areas.

Following on from four other successfully completed projects, Vita Living’s own development team selected a range of authentic Luxury Vinyl Tiles that utilise a performance 0.55 mm wear layer construction designed for commercial environments - an ideal balance between a design that creates a marketable interior and a finish that delivers excellent long-term value.

High-quality living and superb amenities

For apartment living areas and bathrooms, Moduleo 55 Woods was chosen to provide a home-like feel, while Moduleo 55 Tiles and Moduleo 55 Expressive were selected for amenity areas. Creating a stand-out feature around lift areas, Vita Living’s development team opted for Studio Moods in a small herringbone laying pattern.

“We wanted a floor that underlined our ethos of high-quality accommodation and IVC Commercial’s Luxury Vinyl Tiles supported that. The authentic look provides an important connection to natural finishes, while staying easy to care for which is an important consideration. The floor’s durability also helps to prolong replacement due to wear, helping us to provide investors with a building that delivers better value.”

Made in Belgium for assured quality

Moduleo 55 features 50% recycled content from IVC Commercial’s in-house recycling facility and is made with renewable energy from the manufacturer’s own wind turbines. All raw materials are sourced from a 100% European supply chain for assured quality.

Installed by Active Flooring, the project demonstrates the ability of IVC Commercial to meet the service demands of large-scale projects.
