Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital
In 2001 floor designs were just catching on in materials other than VCT. Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital pushed the envelope on what was possible.
- 100′s of floor designs
- Seven floors,each with it’s own unique design
- 11 different flooring manufacturers
- 75 different SKU’s
The question was… is the primary focus…
- a company that has waterjet cutting capabilities or
- a company that understand flooring and logisitics?
Waterjet Works provided both…and then some.
- detailed approval drawings
- material requirements per manufacturer, per item and per floor
- installation maps
- site visits
- a facility that had the floor space and storage space to handle the task.
- knowledgeable people to coordinate with the installation team
Having a machine is probably 25% of what was needed to be successful on this job.
We had a 100% satisfied customer… and they are back for more in 2010!

Holmes Regional Medical Center
Time for an update? Holmes Regional Medical Center wanted to update their children’s floor. Since Holmes is located in Melbourne, Florida just a mile from the ocean an aquatic scene was the design of choice and Nora Rubber was the flooring choice of the design and construction department. The job was fast tracked starting in February of 2010 and completed from the design phase thru final installation in less than six months. The Waterjet Works website waas filled with aquatic life from…
- sea shells
- palm trees
- beach sandals and
- beach balls
Photos of the icons are below. Notice the details and small pieces that are assembled in our production facility and then shipped pre-assembled to the jobsite for easy installation.
Anne Arundel Hospital and Chloe
Simple Idea… Simple Design…Simply Fun… yet it had a profound effect on the children who visited the hospital. Chloe came to visit with Spina Bifida numerous times. Because of her inability to walk, she spent a good deal of time on the floors scooting around. She loved the floor designs so much that she made up stories about the crabs, leaves and fish. The designs took her places in her mind that her legs could not take her to.
Chloe asked her parents if she could have her floor at home like the hospital.
Her parents made the effort to connect to the administration, the architects and then Waterjet Works.
All it took was hearing Chloe’s story. She travels a good deal now…in her mind.
