Project Overview: 

At the completion of Phase II of the Don Wright Faculty of Music Building Renovation at Western University, there was an unappealing elevator that needed dressing up to match the cosmetic updates in the rest of the building.

Challenge: 

Any material going into the elevator cab had to meet fire-rating regulations and had to be removable. We had to refinish the interior walls without renovating the entire cab, while avoiding adding any weight. Once we decided on 3M™ DI-NOC™ Architectural Finishes, we had a three-week time-frame to plan, source, convert the material and install it in the elevator before homecoming.

Solution: 

3M™ DI-NOC™ is fire resistant when used in Interior Applications as defined by NFPA 101 “Life Safety Code”, Test Method ASTM E84. 3M™ DI-NOC™ Architectural Finishes are decorative surface finishes for interior applications that are as light as wall paper. DI-NOC finishes are surprisingly simple to install, clean, maintain, and reconfigure. Our team chose a stock material that was readily available. Next we created a design that was easy to cut and install to meet the three week timeline.
