Rapid renovation at flood damaged school

14 Aug 2018
Case study

A UZIN system was used to install a new floor at St Bede's School in Cambridge after the dining room was damaged by a leaking pipe over the weekend.  The flooring contractor, Superior Finish Contracts Ltd was asked at short notice to remove the existing wood block flooring and install the new luxury vinyl tiles. This was especially challenging as the project had to be completed during the half term break and made available for use for when the children returned. Superior Finish Contracts Ltd therefore turned to an UZIN system to ensure the project was completed during the school holiday. 

Superior Finish Contracts Ltd first had to remove and dispose of approximately 6,500 wood blocks. To compensate for the wood block removal UZIN Deep Fill was used to raise the level of the substrate back up to a suitable height. UZIN NC 163 smoothing compound was then used to create a flat and smooth subfloor. The Karndean Da Vinci luxury vinyl tiles were then installed. The refurbishment went very well and was completed in plenty of time before the children returned to School.
