Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania, Dauphin Humanities Center

Shippensburg, Pennsylvania

Construction Specialties (CS) provided a new Entrance Flooring System for a renovation at Shippensburg University’s Dauphin Humanities Center, a centrally situated academic building.
The large carpet mat in its entrance had long lost its charm, having experienced significant wearing from the 1,000 students that step foot in the facility daily.

Bob Koch, custodial services manager, sought a flooring solution for the Center’s entrance that would be attractive, durable and conform to the custodial team’s required weight limit.
“The carpet mat was doing an okay job, but we needed something that looked a lot nicer,” Koch said. “The people who come through the building really like the new flooring and they definitely take notice.”
The CS project management team provided a solution that adhered to the custodial team’s weight restriction and provided effective fall-through to trap dirt, water and debris. The entrance is now able to withstand the elements and was durable enough to take on a substantial amount of snow and moisture during the most recent school year.
The upgraded entrance to the Dauphin Humanities Center is now equipped to welcome students and faculty for semesters to come.
