1,460 sq m.
One half of the building has a floating sand cement slab. Numerous repairs included joints and cracks to fill and smooth.
The other half was comprised of numerous slabs of varying quality most of which had been coated. There were 5 isolated slabs with raised edges of approximately 10mm.
Creasefield needed to overhaul the floors in order to lift the presentation of their new facility.
Given the condition and history of the building, a pragmatic and cost effective approach to treating the varying floors was key. The new floor would also have to be easy to maintain in the event of further movement or damage. The installation was completed in six days.
Elgood Industrial Flooring carried out a free no obligation site survey and submitted a report to Creasefield. Three contractors were approached and we were pleased to secure the contract.
The preparation was adapted to suit the variable condition of the sub-floor. The sand cement screed had to be prepared gently with grinding to preserve the integrity of the surface.
The raised edges on the slabs were reduced using a combination of diamond grinding and milling.Vacuum contained dust free shot-blasting was used to remove the existing paint and to clean and provide a good physical key on the concrete on the other half. Diamond grinding was used to prepare the edges.
Installation Programme: The preparation and installation were completed in six days.
