I have a FIRST world problem. We’re in process of getting space for a full size field at the school. It’s a brand new facility and we need to spec out flooring for the contractor ASAP. I’m wondering if anybody has recommendations for carpet tile that or something similar to the competition field?
I’m going to reach out to the carpet vendor FIRST uses directly but construction is way ahead of schedule so we’re unexpectedly under time pressure --so any ideas that teams use are welcome. I’m torn between carpet tile the whole building or polished concrete and roll the carpet out every year (but that creates a storage problem).
The context is that this will be a shared space as part of a STEAM building. So, the robotics arena will be a “multi-purpose” building that the performing arts students will be allowed to use in times other than build & competition season. So, we’ll be taking down the field every year. My concern is that we’ll tear apart the carpet after a few years and it’ll look like junk / be a trip hazard for the performing arts kids and tours of the facility.
