School Flooring Project in Salisbury


The Client:


Morgan Sindall Group.

The Project: 


St Michael’s CE Primary School in Salisbury, Hampshire. 

The Brief:


Morgan Sindall contacted our team of experts to help assist with their new school development project in Salisbury. Our client needed high-quality education flooring throughout the school’s staircases, classrooms, bathrooms, library, cafeteria, kitchen, and staff room. 

Our Solution: 


Our team started preparing the subfloor with two coats of Stopgap F78 DPM and Stopgap 1200 pro latex both from the brand FBall. This ensures the subfloor provides a waterproof surface, which follows all British standards. Once the latex was dry an acoustic underlay was expertly installed by our team, which will prolong the flooring’s life, reduce noise, add insulation, and provide added comfort for students, teachers and visitors. 

We used Heckmondwike supacord carpet tiles throughout the staircases, library, hallways, classrooms and staff rooms to have continuity in the school. This flooring solution is low maintenance, energy efficient and is a cost-effective choice for schools as if a tile gets accidentally damaged there’s no need for an entire flooring replacement. 

Altro slip resistant vinyl flooring was used in bathrooms, kitchens, the cafeteria, and stairs as the flooring's materials have an R10 slip resistance value, which is essential for a safe educational establishment. The feature blue and green staircase and the standard staircase both have Quantum PVC stair nosings, which guarantees safety for all young students. The main staircase is now a striking feature within the building, its bright colours will catch the eyes of any student! The bold green edging not only is a fashion statement, but it's also designed so that young children can clearly see the edge of each step, which makes it safer for them to walk up and down the stairs with ease. The staircase has two different sections that include normal stairs and a seating area directly next to it, this will become a social focus point for many of the school's students. 

The team also installed Whiterock Cladding on the school's kitchen walls to provide a hygienic and clean environment. Our Whiterock wall cladding is approved by the European Union (EU) for health and hygiene that guarantees cleanliness for all teachers and students.  The Whiterock cladding can withstand up to 60 degrees, so our client doesn't have to worry about high temperatures affecting the product's warranty. 

The Results:


Our client Morgan Sindall is thrilled with the outcome of St Michael’s new school flooring, that include durable carpet tiles and slip resistant vinyl solutions. Our team of experts had a tight schedule to ensure the project was completed on time, and within budget but we achieved it! We worked closely with the builders site team in order to achieve our target, and provide quality flooring for the client.
