Neuwiesen Shopping Center - Winterthur

The team from WALO Bodenbeläge was able to demonstrate its highly specialized technical know-how and logistical skills during the renovation of the Neuwiesen shopping center building in Winterthur, which was built in 1982.

Project description

The renovation of the Neuwiesen shopping center building in Winterthur, built in 1982, will last until autumn 2019. However, the newly constructed upper floor was already completed in August 2018, so that the new MIGROS supermarket, Do it + Garden, the restaurant and other stores, could already start operations in the new ambience.

While in the areas of the restaurant, the Do it + Garden store or the bakery and confectionery, the hard-wearing HAYPANOL® D synthetic resin flooring proves its versatility, in the mall and in the MIGROS Top supermarket, the aesthetic SURFATEX® terrazzo in two different color and stone compositions is effective.


Special features

Due to the high demands placed on the floor surfaces of the heavily frequented shopping center, a pressure distribution slab made of steel fiber-reinforced DURATEX® hard concrete had to be partially installed under the visible floor coverings.

The WALO team was able to demonstrate its highly specialized technical know-how and logistical skills in this project, because the demands were many and varied: High precision was required in the installation work due to the thin layer of floating floor coverings, as well as adaptability due to the central location of the shopping center, which made the logistics a challenge.
