Providing an education establishment with ‘fit for purpose’ flooring can be challenging, given that the areas tend to receive heavy footfall, have a need to have a safety element and require a contemporary feel.
Our design and specification skills come under scrutiny from everyone including senior heads of departments, the technicians that have to clean and maintain the floors and the students that utilise these facilities.
Our consultants & surveying team can be called in to advise on specific areas, provide technical advice to help the lifecycle of the flooring & deliver projects encompassing the buildings needs & the end User’s vision.

All the above are key to working in healthcare environments, thinking about the use of the building/area, how it affects the ‘working day’ and the impact it has on the staff and end user.
These highly sensitive and challenging areas require a thought process and installation process that is individual – from the change of use of a room to the re-furbishment of a ward – every detail and impact has to be thought out and planned in advance – meaning that our understanding of these areas becomes and remains paramount.
