Bordeaux Saint Jean train station
In early 2017 the renewed train station of Bordeaux Saint Jean opened its doors for more than 18 million passengers per year. With so many visitors walking through the central hall, the flooring needed extra attention from the architects. AREP engineers asked MOSO® to produce bamboo flooring that will last for years in these very tough conditions. A specially developed Bamboo UltraDensity® flooring, installed on Bamboo X-treme sub frame joists, has been developed and extensively tested. This MOSO Bamboo UltraDensity® flooring has been certified by FCBA wood institute for heavy traffic and semi outdoor use, specifically for train station halls. For the first time a bamboo floor has been qualified of having better properties than any other wood alternative.
