‘Inspirational interiors’ for award-winning stadium

ALTRO products have delivered what’s been described as a high-performance finish in the new changing areas, showers and physiotherapy suite at Sheffield’s Olympic Legacy Park Stadium.

With the need to provide inspirational interiors for aspiring Olympians, Alex Parojcic, architect at Whittam Cox, knew a high-end design, complemented by technical performance and ease of maintenance was required for the new changing areas, showers and physiotherapy suite.

‘Ceramic tiles had originally been specified for the showers and changing rooms, but we switched to Altro Tegulis when we realised the installation would be quicker, give a fantastic look and feel to the areas, and provide the cleanliness and hygiene standards required for such busy areas,’ says Alex. ‘Altro Tegulis has provided a great aesthetic for the space and would 100% specify again.’

Altro Tegulis along with Altro Aquarius flooring were specified for the showers, providing safety from slips in shoes and barefoot.

For the changing rooms, where traffic from football studs, sports shoe spikes and bumps/knocks from sports bags and equipment would be experienced, Altro Atlas 40 was specified. Altro Wood was used in the physiotherapy suite for a warm, less clinical finish.

Joe Richardson of Richardsons Cladding who completed the installation, says: ‘Altro Tegulis was a quick and easy install which assisted with the contractor’s tight programme. If this had been done in ceramic tiles it would have impacted the programme massively.

‘This was our first installation of Altro Tegulis and would absolutely use it again. It’s a quick install, with a much cleaner site.’

Says Altro: ‘Altro Tegulis tile-effect wall panels offer the ideal alternative to traditional tiles for wet rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, and retail spaces. With a range of tile-effect patterns offering a grout-free alternative to tiles, Altro Tegulis offers a more familiar feeling than traditional wall panel sheets.
‘Altro Atlas is well suited to areas where the risk of a slip is high, including heavy duty industrial use and sports changing rooms. Hardwearing, stable, and resistant to mechanical damage and chemicals, Altro Atlas 40 provides long term durability and slip resistance, and is easy to clean and maintain.

‘Altro Aquarius is a specialist solution for combined wet and dry, shoe and barefoot areas, to provide slip-resistance even with common contaminants such as shampoo and conditioner.’
The company concludes: ‘Altro Wood is a general purpose 2mm wood-effect vinyl safety flooring available in a range of designs with different plank sizes.’
