Ikea Home Furnishings – Dallas
Ikea, the hot retail home furnishings retailer opened their first Texas location in Frisco, just north of Dallas. With this exciting announcement came a very aggressive and challenging construction schedule and grand opening.
For Walt Kurtz and Spectra- Dallas came a commitment to complete our flooring scope within the time permitted knowing that other trades would be working in the same areas trying to achieve the same goal. The biggest challenge was met “head on” in dealing with the new concrete substrate and its curing. With all the common moisture/curing conditions being present in new construction, we were able to overcome these challenges installing over 7300 SY of patterned heat welded linoleum flooring in addition to the required carpet and cork flooring.
