“The Sanford Pentagon had the pleasure of working with the Anderson Ladd and Robbins group as they installed all nine Robbins Hardwood Floor Surfaces for The Pentagon last August. The Anderson Ladd & Robbins staff did quality work and finished in a timely manner. We are extremely happy with the final results and we are getting great reviews from the players and coaches who use the courts.”

Sanford Health is an internationally renowned health care facility with facilities throughout the USA.

The facility includes practice and competition gymnasiums and training facilities. The facility hosts many regional and national tournaments. And many of the nations top professional athletes trust Sanford for health and rehabilitation services.
Anderson Ladd was consulted early in the design process to determine the athletic equipment and flooring needs of the facility. The competition and practice wood floors used anchored resilient custom designed plywood sub floors and 2nd grade maple for the top surface. The maple had two special features: 1. Full length boards rather than random lengths pieces gives the floor a more stable, consistent, durable play. 2. Each maple board has a built in moisture expansion nub to prevent buckling, heaving and floor gaps due to the wide swings in seasonal temperature and humidity. The sub floor was custom designed for performance and specific site conditions. The floor is anchored for stability with built in shock absorption resilience for safer play.
The competition arena was designed and installed by Anderson Ladd in a Boston square pattern and retro stain color to emulate a throwback era in basketball similar to Boston Gardens, famous for its Boston square patterned floor. Anderson Ladd designed the floor to accommodate heavy portable backstops at each of the court.
The practice courts have Anderson Ladd custom designed and installed ceiling mounted basketball backstops, curtains and wall pads, in addition to the wood gym floors. A center roll curtain was installed to reduce set up time, to minimize maintenance and repair costs, to increase durability and to increase the playable ceiling height in the gym.
