• Trammell Crow welcomes the opening of the Alexan Southwood, its brand new apartment community on the southeast side of Tallahassee, Florida. These apartments emanate a resort-like quality with their modern design, luxurious interiors, and extensive community facilities. Here, the goal is to provide enough luxury and convenience to put residents at ease in their new homes.

    As far as keeping its residents happy, the Alexan Southwood has all bases covered. The apartment community offers a lavish pool, fitness center, outdoor kitchen with a television and fireplace, two picnic areas, theater room, walking and biking paths, playground, pet park, resident executive center and billiards entertainment room.

    Residents have the option of five spacious floor plans to choose from. Each unit is furnished with faux wood floors, granite countertops, washers and dryers, and Berber carpeting.

    In Trammell Crow’s effort to create a comfortable and peaceful home environment, the company utilized Keene Building Products’ QQ Step Soft™ 8 mm, a noise control mat made out of 95% recycled rubber that is designed to reduce impact noise in floor assemblies.

    QQ Step Soft™’s resiliency is effective at absorbing footfall and other sound vibrations. This results in a significant overall reduction in impact noise in the total system. QQ Step Soft™ is the decisive element in many flooring systems when it comes to meeting international building codes for noise control. QQ Step Soft™ passes the Federal Flammability Standard, meets CHPS standards for VOCs, and passes the ASTM C627 reliability standard for residential use. Because of Keene’s QQ Step Soft™ noise mats, builders at the Alexan Southwood were able to meet this standard.

    QQ Step Soft™ creates a strong, solid surface on top of which a finished floor can be laid. At the Alexan Southwood, Trammell Crow installed this underlayment underneath vinyl, which has a luxurious feel, but also provides the durability that is necessary in apartments.

    At the Alexan Southwood, residents can find a relaxing lifestyle that is reminiscent of a luxury vacation at a high-class resort. Noise isolation technology is fundamental in ensuring that all members of this community have a peaceful and pleasant living experience.
