Paris, France

The former headquarters of L’Etudiant magazine was gutted in 2010 and renovated in 2011. With 3,800 m² floor area, it now houses a new business incubator able to accommodate about 56 companies. 

Project Requirements

The developer wanted the building to be renovated to the state-of-art environmental standards, while, from a design point of view, taking particular care to maintain its architectural interior character. In addition, it had to meet European standards EN 13813 and EN 1504-2. The flooring also had to be supplied in a very short time frame.

Sika Solutions

To meet all the requirements specified by the architect, Sika ComfortFloor® polyurethane resin flooring systems were chosen. These flexible flooring systems are the ideal solution for commercial and public building areas, offering the following advantages:

  • Very low VOC emissions (compliant with French AFSSET – 2009 protocol requirements)
  • Attractive
  • Sound dampening (a feature of Sika ComfortFloor® Pro system)
  • Excellent underfoot comfort
  • Slip-resistant
