Uzin and Superior Finish Contracts
Superior Finish Contracts was appointed to remove the old wood block flooring and install the new LVTs after a burst pipe flooded the reception at Peterborough Regional College. UZIN NC 150 smoothing compound, which has a high compressive strength of 25 N and produces a fantastic finish was ideal for use in the reception.
Amtico and Paynters Contract Flooring
It was found the original layout of Clothworkers’ South Building at the University of Leeds was confusing to people unfamiliar with the building trying to find their way around, so colour-coded floor levels were introduced over the four storeys. The multiple colours and laying patterns of the Signature collection, as well as the fact that the wearlayer is greater than in other products on the market, all led to Amtico being chosen.
Forbo Flooring Systems and Contraflor
About 600sq m of Forbo’s Flotex Triad planks was installed in the entrance level of the Andersonian Library at Strathclyde University in a combination of the Steel, Green and Green Line colourways to create a bespoke and striking pattern.
Milliken and Loughton Contracts
A combination of products with Milliken’s Comfort Plus and Comfort Lite cushion backings were used throughout Bush House at King’s College London, delivering several performance benefits. John Robertson Architects said: ‘In specifying the flooring for undertaking at Bush House, we felt that the Milliken team really understood our requirements. Their impressive design capabilities and outstanding product performance were integral to the success of the project.’
