Installed to perfection right down to the molecular level

Project: Castle Hill Hospital Ward 22
Client: Ark Interiors

After a successful installation of Wards 18 and 19 (See project here) at Castle Hill Hospital, in Cottingham, S&D Flooring were once again appointed by Ark Interiors (part of the Strata Group) to install a wide range of flooring products to assist with the restoration and transformation of a redundant medical ward into a bespoke contemporary office and training centre that is a more useable space for teams.

The Brief…

As part of the brief, S&D Flooring was appointed to install a prepared design (from Ark Interiors) that echoes a modern and motivating working environment. This is reflected with bursts of brightly coloured hexagonal carpet tiles that appear throughout the Wards’ breakout area – which to some could be seen as making reference to the atomic structures of proteins and other compounds. Supporting this, features a sea of neutral greys and patches of Karndean Lime wash oak planks. Whereas towards the centre of the ward and down several small corridors features a combination of artificial grass and Desso Essence stripe Green carpet tiles. Following from the main hub of the ward consists of several small to medium training rooms and offices that feature a mixture of subtle toned carpets and carpet tiles with strips of bold colours that connect with the colour on their feature walls. Finally, the project also consisted of installing, capping and coving Polyflor PUR safety flooring in two medium sized toilets that are situated towards the edge of the site.

With only 48 man-working days available to install over 800 square metres of carpet tiles, safety flooring and artificial grass, plus layers of Damp Proof Membrane and Instarmac Screed. This was surely a fast paced and complex operation – if you’d pardon the pun. One of the challenges S&D Flooring and the Boys in Blue faced during this project was working around several different trades whom were conducting their own wall, ceiling and electrics installations. To mitigate the potential risks of not being able to complete the project on time it was agreed that after completing a sub floor preparation our installers would quickly install flooring in one area whilst trades worked in another before protecting the newly installed floor and moving around to another area of the site. This proved to be successful but challenging at times, especially in the small areas of the site.

Besides handing over a project to our client, one of our favourite parts of the project was to install the hexagonal carpet tiles as it is shape that our Boys in Blue rarely get to install but look absolutely amazing when installed. Plus seeing the completed project in all its glory, as shown in the images below, makes us feel proud of delivering another top quality installation.

A Few Final Words…

Gary Finch, Business Manager of Ark Interiors said: “After our successful partnerships on previous HEY NHS projects, we again requested S&D to deliver another first-class flooring installation for the new Education and Development suite at Castle Hill Hospital, Hull – our latest design and build scheme. S&D were right in point with our requirements and our schedule of works was adhered to in the usual professional manner by the S&D team”.

S&D Flooring would like to thank Ark Interiors for giving S&D Flooring the opportunity to work on another interesting and creative project. Plus allowing us to use and share their project photos on our social media platforms, more of which can be found at http://bit.ly/2x4zDBS.
