Flowcrete UK took home a coveted prize at the FeRFA Best Practise Awards 2016, winning the Highly Commended Small Industrial Project category in partnership with Resin Coating Specialists.
The award, presented during a glittering ceremony held in the Woodlands Suite of the Belfry Hotel, was in recognition of a flooring project at Larton Livery, located in Frankby on the Wirral peninsula, which was building a new, high-end cattery.
Larton Livery needed a high performance flooring solution in order to maintain a clean and attractive appearance despite the hygiene difficulties inherent to a cattery facility. It was also important that the floor’s colour and design would impress clients visiting the site and emphasise the high quality service that Larton Livery prides itself on delivering.
Flowcrete UK supplied 180m2 of Flowfresh SL and 210m2 of Flowshield FX, which was installed by Resin Coating Specialists. The cream coloured Flowfresh SL coating was applied across the cattery area while Flowshield FX was used to create a black walkway around the room.
Larton Livery knew that a rigorous cleaning regime would be required, especially for contamination prone areas such as underneath the animal cages. The seamless and impervious nature of the chosen finishes was ideal, as any contaminants can be quickly and easily removed from the area. The antibacterial agent Polygiene® is incorporated within every Flowfresh floor, this additive is able to kill up to 99.9% of bacteria, including the Parvovirus and MRSA.
Prior to installing the floor, bespoke samples and consultations were provided in order to tailor the project to the client’s budget and time frame as well as ensure that the work could fit in with other on-site contractors.
The Resin Coating Specialists installed over 400m2 of specialist resin flooring solutions at the new cattery in only one week! This provided the client with a high performance finish within a very short turn around, which allowed Larton Livery to quickly get on with the job of finishing the cattery and opening up for business.
Over 250 guests attended the highly regarded industry event, which celebrates workmanship, diversity, innovation and commitment to quality and training by FeRFA members. Winners are picked from four categories, which are: Small Industrial Project of the Year; Large Industrial Project of the Year; Small Commercial Project of the Year and Large Commercial Project of the Year.
