In 2016 in conjunction with Action Floor Systems, we had the opportunity to update the courts at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) in the capital city of Canberra. It’s home to the Centre of Excellence (COE) for Basketball Australia, where elite athletes have launched incredible careers. The AIS has a rich history of training future NBA stars like Andrew Bogut, Matthew Dellavedova, Patty Mills and the 2016 No. 1 draft pick, Ben Simmons. WNBA MVP, Lauren Jackson, is another famous name to have played in the facility.

Installing the ActionCush II Plus flooring system
We identified the floating floor system, ActionCush II Plus, as an ideal fit for the facility. It matched the height requirements of the previous floor while providing dimensional stability and strength along with exceptional ball response.
The Finished Floor
The entire AIS facility renovation was a $750,000 project that took three months to finish. Hardwood Specialist and Craftsman along with Action Floor Systems and Ace Floors and Coatings of Lancefield, VIC AU are pleased to be a part of this project.
