The design of the Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport, a four-storey world-class gymnasium, sports medicine and training facility, based at the University of Toronto campus, included a sound attenuated floating floor to reduce impact vibration resulting from olympic-level weights being dropped onto the floor, to protect the close proximity of tenant space and sensitive medical equipment rooms.

A Stravifloor Jackup solution was installed consisting of jack-up steel spring isolators, designed at 50 mm deflection, to reduce impact vibration. After spring deflection, a 50 mm air void cavity space between the structural and floating slab was achieved, with a 50 mm perimeter air gap, to ensure highest possible venting to reduce the influence of the air stiffness.
