Take a Walk on the Plank Side | Covenant Woods

Covenant Woods in Mechanicsville, Virginia renovated their Lodge in June 2020. They elected to remove carpet and modernize the common areas to a glue down commercial vinyl plank. With a high traffic area and many residents with wheelchairs, this upgrade truly transformed the entire space!

DMA Floors Project Manager Jessica Bronner worked one on one with Covenant Woods to design multiple patterned insets to make this elegant space stand out. The project consisted of 14,000 square feet and was completed start to finish in just 12 days thanks to Dre and his crew.

Covenant Woods chose a combination of Patcraft Woodland View for the restaurant and conference room and J&J Classics for the lobby and hallways. The two products compliment each other nicely and help each individual area come to life! 

This project was just one of many between Covenant Woods and DMA Floors. This year DMA has also completed a large renovation in the Manor and a renovation of the swimming pool. DMA appreciates our repeat customers and strives to provide the best service in town!

The National Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham at Saint Bede Catholic received a complete interior renovation. This project began January 27, 2019 as a fundraising campaign called “Restore the Holy House.”  Saint Bede reported, “major portions of the interior [that] have reached the end of their intended lifespan.” There are still opportunities on their website to support the effort.

DMA Floors Project Manager Millie Rice and her team partnered with Henderson, Inc.to completely revamp this historic building with the guidance of Construction Manager Bernie Mills and Superintendent Matt Hipple. The collaborative team effort put the design concept together from scratch, to create the beautiful layout for the porcelain tile floors, provided by International Tile and Marble.

The new design boasting an elegant aesthetic and a simple, Old World ambience. The rounded finished edges of the raised platform were made possible by Schluter Systems Radius Profile. Due to the age of the building and the state of the concrete subfloor, self-leveling was performed by DMA using Mapei’s self-leveling system. This created a near-flawless substrate that allowed for a painless installation.

The outstanding team put together by Henderson, Inc. finished the entire renovation with zero items on the punch-list, which DMA Floors was privileged to be a part of. In the words of Henderson, Inc., this project truly went “Beyond the Building” to provide a gorgeous chapel for the local Williamsburg residents.

This isn’t the first project that involved collaboration between DMA Floors and Henderson, Inc. In November, 2019, we announced the completion of High Street Luxury Apartments and the Holiday Inn Club Vacations Resort. If you are looking for a seamless renovation, this team has a proven success rate!

DMA Floors Azura Vascular Care

Azura Vascular Care | DMA Floors

Azura Vascular Care understands that facility management contributes to the quality of patient safety. While the VHHA conducted their 9th annual Virginia Patient Safety Summit in Richmond, VA, plans were already underway to improve the flooring at their Staples Mill Road location.

Known for their experience with upgrading floors in other healthcare facilities such as the MCV Pediatric ER and the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center (ECCC), DMA Floors installed new flooring at Azura Vascular Care over the weekend, to be sure they could serve patients without interruption.

How did they make that happen? Thanks to a fast-setting “broadcast flake” flooring from Dur-A-Flex called the Accelera C system. DMA Floors modified this system by using a combination of epoxy, urethane and Flint Earthstone Flake chips to build a floor that is easy to clean and maintain. It’s also durable enough to withstand heavy medical traffic.

Azura Vascular Care specializes in the critical maintenance and management of dialysis access. Dr’s Radack and Sutton treat and manage a range of vascular access issues using the latest in minimally invasive techniques in a safe and comfortable outpatient setting. They provide individualized care in a timely fashion so that you can return to your normal routine with minimal disruption to your regular dialysis schedule.
