Patient room at The Woodlands Hospital in TexasSustainable and responsibly resourced materials are a requirement for most projects today. With LEED points a frequent requisite, the core materials specified need to be green. Design professionals have to comply with a variety of environmental requirements. Carbon emissions, regionally sourced materials and recycled content are all of foremost concern when specifying casework.

With a plethora of regulatory certifications required for wood products, it can be difficult to discern what information is most relevant. Some casework manufacturers are intentionally vague on the origins of their core materials to disguise their source. Design professionals today rarely have the time to investigate and confirm these materials with the certifications needed for a project.

In response to provide our customers with great service, ASST has developed a dealership alliance with TMI Systems to help with overcoming these challenges. TMI has been in business since 1969 and their trusted commitment to sustainable design is unmatched in the casework industry. Core material options are available with 20% recycled content as well as low emitting adhesives and composite woods. These are only a few of the benefits to this new dealership alliance. Combined with ASST’s industry leadership with solid surface fabrication, design professionals now have a comprehensive resource to obtain a CSI DIV 6 &12 specification solution. Whether it is for healthcare, education, corporate or retail our team can ASsiST you with your sustainable project goals. Who says it’s not easy being green?

ASST is uniquely positioned to fulfill all aspects of your project. Whatever you need, ASST can build it to the exact specifications, in a safe manner and to the finest quality standards you expect.

Innovative Core MaterialsToday, solid surface materials are becoming utilized for more design applications than just countertops. New innovative core materials starting to find their place in solid surface fabrication. Design professionals are also fueling these changes with new applications such as doors with CNC routed designs to 1” thick solid surface toilet partitions.

As design professionals explore these design applications for solid surface, technical challenges can arise. For example, solid surface panels for toilet partitions need to be lightweight but strong. Standard toilet partition hardware can’t handle the weight of a 1” thick solid surface acrylic partition. Additionally, cost implications of utilizing solid partitions can be difficult for any owner to accept.

ASST has a wealth of experience with arriving at innovative solutions for unique projects. For one corporate client, ASST proposed a fabrication solution for toilet partitions that preserved the design intent while satisfying owner concerns for performance. Honeycomb plastic core sheets are available in a variety of thicknesses. Most solid surface manufacturers now have sheet materials in thinner thicknesses from 1/4” to as thin as 1/8”. By creating a “sandwich” of 1/4” solid surface each side of a 1/2” thick core, the weight is drastically reduced. Standard partition hardware can now be utilized and any additional blocking or accommodation for toilet accessories can be made by the fabricator. Doing what ever it takes to solve a problem and Going Beyond for our customers is of prime importance. Our innovative team of estimators, planners and project managers collaborate and deliver project results in a way few competitors can.

Just anyone can build casework right? Well, in a word no. At least not for healthcare and educational project applications. The quality has to be excellent and the service extraordinary. Rigorous requirements for LEED ® certification and FSC materials are further limiting the options available in the marketplace. General Contractors are also under pressure to bring to the table excellent casework subcontractors that prequalify well and limit risk to themselves and the Owner.

There are numerous ways of constructing casework but few can withstand the rigors of a healthcare or educational environment. Typical problems can include the use on non-moisture resistant MDF or particle board. Some fabricators do not follow AWI quality casework standards in their construction means and methods. They instead substitute with low cost materials and finishes that do not meet the Architect’s specification.

To address this issue, ASST has found value in providing a more proactive comprehensive solution. A “one stop” solid surface/ casework/millwork custom solution incorporating a wide variety of finish materials. ASST has now partnered with TMI Systems Corporation as a dealer for their line of casework. Based in North Dakota, TMI is a leader in quality casework fabrication. They are an excellent reputable resource and ASST looks forward to working with them on many future projects. With this new alliance, ASST can perform work with wood veneers, plastic laminate, Trespa®, stone, metal, glass as well as all brands of solid surface and resin plastic materials. Our innovative team of estimators, planners and project managers collaborate and deliver project results in a way few competitors can. We look forward to working with you on your next project!
