Kittiwake were expanding into the two adjacent units and as part of the expansion, Kittiwake made the decision to upgrade the presentation of both the existing and recently acquired floors. The concrete in the existing warehouse had been coated in the past with a tangerine coloured floor paint that had worn away in areas of frequent traffic leaving an untidy appearance. The concrete floors in the recently acquired units were in an unsatisfactory condition from general wear and had some exposed aggregate in places. The floor had received a thin coat of a grey floor paint which remained only in patches.
To minimise disruption to production, it was agreed that the flooring should be installed in two phases with one phase to be carried out over an extended weekend. Each phase had a duration of three days.
