BBC Studioworks, Television Centre Scenery Runway

A rough 175 sq m concrete from which a 25mm asphalt floor had been removed.

The BBC are returning to the historic Television Centre. The studio floors and service areas required refurbishing ahead of the re-launch of broadcasting from the three studios.

We prepared the concrete using Von Arx Scabbling machines to remove traces of asphalt and to clean the surface. Vacuums were attached to the preparation machinery in order to capture dust and debris.

The BBC Television Centre is at the heart of a larger Construction Site so it was important that we had SMSTS and SSSTS qualified staff. To unload deliveries we had our own CPCS qualified Forklift Driver.

Pre-blended fast drying  Industrial Floor Screed to a thickness of 25-30 mm to meet existing Finished Floor Levels.

This was finished with our Britdura 3000 Solvent Free Epoxy Flowed Coating to a thickness of approximately 3mm. The floor has a fine slip resistant texture.

Line markings and contrasting colours were used to form a layout and to warn users to keep Studio Doors free from obstruction. Truly Single Source. Elgood Flooring project managed and installed.
