Flooring for the Bershire Hospital

 

For this project, we carefully selected flooring materials to meet the specific requirements of each area within the hospital:

 

Surgery Rooms

We fitted plywood as the base and then installed Polysafe Wood Fx vinyl flooring, complete with capped and coved skirtings. This combination offers excellent durability, slip resistance, and ease of maintenance, crucial for high-traffic healthcare environments.

 

Corridors, Reception, and Back Areas

In these high-traffic areas, we installed Polyflor Expona Commercial LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile). This premium LVT solution combines durability with a stylish aesthetic, enhancing the overall look and feel of the hospital while providing ease of maintenance and longevity.

Challenges Faced and Results and Benefits

 

Adherence to strict healthcare regulations and standards.

Coordination with other contractors to ensure seamless integration of flooring with other elements of the hospital construction.

The use of Polysafe Wood Fx vinyl in surgery rooms ensures a hygienic and safe environment for medical procedures, meeting stringent healthcare standards.

Polyflor Expona Commercial LVT in corridors, reception, and back areas enhances the hospital’s aesthetic appeal while offering durability and ease of maintenance, contributing to a positive patient experience.

The installation of capped and coved skirtings ensures a seamless and hygienic transition between the flooring and walls in surgery rooms, minimising the risk of dirt and bacteria buildup.

Resolution

 

Drawing upon our expertise and experience, Olivers Contracts successfully addressed these challenges:

 

  1. Methodical Approach: Implementing a meticulous removal process to protect the property and prepare the surfaces for the installation of the new flooring.
  2. Surface Preparation: Applying high-quality primer, screed, and adhesive from Uzin UK to ensure a stable and durable foundation for the new flooring.
  3. Skilled Execution: Deploying skilled craftsmen equipped with the necessary tools and techniques to ensure flawless installation across all floors.
  4. Efficient Project Management: Streamlining workflows and closely coordinating with Apollo Interiors to optimise efficiency and meet project milestones within the specified timeframe.
