Digital company LiveLink Technology has demonstrated how creative carpet design can set the tone for the whole building at its new offices in Havant.
The company specified 60m2 of Supacord tiles in Graphite, Steel Grey and Red for the refurbished former Havant Council building, working with local flooring contractor Enhanced Floors.
Enhanced Floors recommended that LiveLink chose Supacord by Heckmondwike FB because of its wide choice of colours and its durability.
Geoff Youngs, Technical Director at LiveLink, wanted a Space Invaders’ theme to his office. He liked the idea of using the floor space to create an eye-catching design, which was possible due to the versatility of Supacord tiles.
Graphite was used for the background colourway, with Steel Grey chosen for the alien’s body and Red for the eyes, creating a result that perfectly replicates the design of the original 1978 arcade game.
The whole impact was enhanced with black window frames, red window sills and a large glass door etched with a screen shot from the retro game.
Geoff Youngs said: “As a digital business, we wanted our new premises to reflect our personality and make a statement. My Space Invaders office does just that and I’m really pleased to have something completely different – it’s a great talking point! Our aim is to inspire staff to be more creative with their thinking and this design is part of reinforcing that.”
Andrew Bradley, Director at Enhanced Floors, said: “We have worked with Heckmondwike FB for over 20 years and Supacord can be relied upon to provide good performance over the long term. It was the obvious choice for us to recommend it for creating the striking impression that LiveLink wanted to create!”
Sharni Verity, Marketing Executive at Heckmondwike FB, said: “Supacord was perfect for this project and the Space Invaders design looks amazing! It just goes to show that there should be no limit to what can be achieved with Supacord because of the wide choice of colours we offer. LiveLink will also have the reassurance that Supacord is known as one of the most hardwearing fibre bonded carpets on the market.”
Supacord’s tough, fibre bonded construction means it is strong enough to withstand heavy footfall, whilst retaining its appearance. Supacord is a very popular choice for a wide range of heavy traffic environments, from offices to schools.
Supacord is available in both sheet and tile formats and with 42 different colour options, it has unique design capabilities since it does not ravel or fray. This means that both the sheets and tiles can be cut on site to create stylish and engaging flooring designs.
Heckmondwike FB carpets and carpet tiles are available with full technical support, as part of the service. All fibre bonded products are manufactured by Heckmondwike FB at its base in West Yorkshire, where the company is fully certified to ISO 14001, as part of its commitment to sustainability.
Heckmondwike FB is one of the leading carpet suppliers to the education, commercial and public sectors and is well-known for the excellent value, durability and high performance of its products.
