Flooring in residential development & social housing

Loughton Contracts with Havwoods and Milliken

Newfoundland, Canary Wharf Estate, London

Newfoundland is a 60-storey residential development that represents the first stage of new residential development at Canary Wharf which has been dominated by commercial office skyscrapers. The project comprised of around 55,000sq m of raised acoustic saddle flooring supplied by CMS Danskin. This was laid throughout the apartments and communal spaces. Being a dry floating floor system it eliminated the need for wet trades, greatly improving the project programme as well as being significantly weight-saving compared to screed. The system also helped to provide effective noise reduction from impact and airborne sources, whilst at the same time providing the ability to easily level the subfloor providing a suitable base for the timber floor finish.
