Kingspan Access Floors has won its second largest order in Russia – a contract to supply 25,000 sq m of raised flooring for new premises in Moscow for Mail.Ru Group, the leading Internet company in Russia.
Mail.Ru Group is expanding and also consolidating its operations under one roof by occupying the entire Tower A at Skylight, a mixed use complex comprising two 27-storey towers connected by a sky bridge and also linked by a five floor area in the centre of Moscow’s business area.
Kingspan’s flooring is being supplied for the project through the Russian based contractors K Concept. Installation work began in August and is due to be completed by the end of February 2013.
The raised flooring contract was awarded by KMT Construction Holding. The company’s project director, Petr Khlebtsov, and CEO, Eray Gonnen, said they selected Kingspan flooring because of its quality to price ratio, speed of delivery and the extensive technical support provided by K Concept.
Kingspan Access Floors Commercial Director Rachel Mumford said: “Another factor in the client’s choice of our steel encapsulated flooring was the advantages of its chipboard core – its lighter weight means it is easier to handle, there is less risk of transport damage, and freight and material costs are lower.”
• Kingspan’s largest contract in Russia was to supply 35,000 sq m of flooring in 2010 to the oil company TNK-BP for a new headquarters building.
