Multicategory flooring solutions at Radisson RED Liverpool

CARPET tiles, luxury vinyl tiles and heterogeneous vinyl floors by IVC Commercial have been used in the conversion of a former halls of residence for Liverpool’s students into a Radisson RED hotel.

In a project that has seen a once-derelict halls of residence turned into a glamorous hotel, returning grandeur to a Grade II Listed building that was once a British Transport Hotel, IVC Commercial’s reported ability to go across categories has seen a range of its flooring solutions specified.
Across Creative Spark carpet tiles, LayRed 55 engineered acoustic vinyl, Moduleo and Studio Moods luxury vinyl tiles, and Optimise 70 and Isafe 70 heterogeneous vinyl; more than 6,100sq m of IVC Commercial flooring has been specified by KonceptID.

Radisson RED Liverpool was once North Western Hall, neighbouring Liverpool’s Lime Street railway station. The building was designed by Alfred Waterhouse as a hotel in the 1800s and become student accommodation in the 1990s, after a long period of dereliction. Now, extensive renovation works, including 792 hours spent on the building’s grand sandstone staircase, have once again turned it into a destination hotel with a grand interior.

The design team at KonceptID, explains more: ‘Our lead designer, Paul Scott, was actually a former resident of the student halls, so had an excellent understanding of the fabric and history of the building. This was key to developing a scheme that was sympathetic to the extensive restoration of the building yet that also met the modern design demands of a city centre hotel.

‘When it came to the flooring, we wanted to present a range of materials that reflected the heritage of the site but that would also be cost-effective, easy to maintain and hardwearing. For example, using herringbone LVT let us mirror the heritage of this smart new hotel, but also ensured a cost-effective, durable and easy to look after floor.’
