Multi-purpose space created for local community

Wavendon Community Hub has been created and designed to provide local residents with a place to meet and take part in physical and social activities. In keeping with surrounding properties, Wavendon Community Hub is constructed in red/buff brick, with pitched tiled roofs. The building comprises two separate halves: a community side with a vaulted hall space and a separate, large multi-purpose area with changing facilities. The floors needed to perform for different needs and uses, providing robust durability, safety from slips, but still provide welcoming good looks.


The project was designed by W E Architecture Ltd and the build was completed by Borras Construction Ltd, with flooring installed throughout by HC Coverings Ltd, using Mapei floor preparation products.


Resilient flooring was specified throughout the centre and installed over underfloor heating. Designs specified throughout the 500 square metre area included Altro Wood in the communal areas, Altro Aquarius in the toilets, showers and changing rooms and Altro Walkway 20 in corridors and back-of-house areas.

Altro Wood is an attractive, general purpose 2mm wood-effect vinyl safety flooring is available in a range of designs with di fferent plank sizes and shades including wide plank, classic and rustic designs, helping you create the right look for areas where people live and work.

Altro Aquarius is our specialist solution safety floor for combi ned wet and dry, shoe and barefoot areas keeping users safe with common contaminants such as shampoo and conditioner.

Altro Walkway 20 is our hugely popular, hard-wearing safety floor. The range has 30 colours and shares colours with Altro XpressLay; so you can combine use of both ranges when you need traditionally adhered and adhesive-free safety flooring in adjacent areas.
