Education

    Fitted: Karndean Van Gogh – luxury vinyl flooring

We have been appointed as flooring contractors on many projects at education establishments across the North West and beyond.

With contracts direct from schools and universities, local authorities and building contractors, we have a solid reputation in this area and are on many approved contractor lists.

We have worked with the University of Manchester for a number of years and installed flooring at various campus buildings including the complete fit-out at the Kilburn Building on Oxford Road, as well as projects at the Manchester Museum, which is owned by the University.
Considerations for education flooring contractors

Education environments have a unique set of requirements from their floor coverings. Heavy footfall areas such as entrances, stairwells and corridors need anti-slip flooring and accessories. Entrances specifically must have the ability to collect dirt and moisture to avoid them being brought into the building. Classrooms and lecture hall floors need to be durable in both appearance and functionality. Science labs need to be resistant to spills, heat and contamination.

Sports halls, drama rooms and dance studios are different again. Specific flooring materials suited to heavy impact and that support physical activity are required. Flooring used in sport and gym settings use shock absorber technology to protect the integrity and life of the floor and and building structure, as well as the user.

Price and value for money also play a part in installations of this kind, particularly state funded contracts.
