Silverstone University Technical College

The job / challenge

UZIN systems were used for the flooring installations at Silverstone University Technical College, right in the heart of one of the world’s most famous motor racing circuits. The flooring contractor, CD Northern turned to UZIN because minimising risk was essential on such a prestigious project which involved installing several different types of floor coverings. This stunning new multi-million pound facility is a centre of excellence for pupils to study the specialist fields of High Performance Engineering and Technical Events Management.

The solution / implementation

Various floor coverings were installed using different UZIN systems. Parts of the ground floor were first repaired using UZIN RR 203 crack bridge mesh and UZIN NC 888 feather repair. The ground floor was then prepared using UZIN PE 360 primer and UZIN NC 160 smoothing compound. For the first and second floors UZIN PE 630 primer and UZIN NC175 fibre-reinforced smoothing compound were utilised.

2000 m² of safety flooring was then installed across several areas on the ground, first and second floors using UZIN KE 2428 multi-purpose adhesive. 2400 m² of carpet tiles were also installed using UZIN U2100 tackifier. 1200 m² of Arturo EP3600 resin floor paint was also used to decorate all the workshops adjacent to the old pit on the main track. Silverstone UTC opened in September 2013 and the new flooring was fitted remarkably, contributing to the vibrant and creative environment.

The result

“We’re extremely proud of the installation and it was great to have UZIN as part of the team. The products bestowed us with confidence and enabled our installers to work to the tight deadlines set.”
