Blantyre LIFE care facility specify Gerflor for iconic project

When a brand-new care facility just south of Glasgow, Scotland required a complete solution for its project interiors, the Architect at South Lanarkshire Council turned to international flooring specialist Gerflor to supply a vast range of products that would future proof the clients building for many years to come. This included Gerflor’s world class Taralay, Tarasafe & Taraflex vinyl floorcoverings, as well as Cityscene Carpets and Gradus Barrier Matting & Accessories.

The new Blantyre facility is part of South Lanarkshire Council’s and South Lanarkshire Health & Social Care Partnership’s commitment to ‘home for life’ has opened its doors to new residents.

Maggie Smith, Scotland Team Leader, Gerflor commented,” Our initial conversations took place with Thomas Tallan at South Lanarkshire Council back in 2019 / 2020.

Thomas was looking to specify products throughout the entire building. He was familiar with Gerflor vinyl products and confident with them, however with the integration of Gerflor and Gradus, we could offer him the full package all under one roof.”

Thomas Tallan Architectural Officer South Lanarkshire Council commented, “I have specified Gerflor and Gradus products on many projects over the years, they have a good offer to fit most environments and budgets without the need to compromise on performance, durability, and aesthetics. Both Gerflor and Gradus also provide excellent specification, technical and customer service.”

The flooring installation at Blantyre LIFE would be the responsibility of a local company – McGarry Flooring near Glasgow. Craig Stockman, Contracts Director at McGarry Flooring said, “The Gerflor and Gradus products were very easy to work with and fit and are meeting and exceeding expectations for the client. We would definitely choose to work with Gerflor and Gradus products again.”
