Renovation of Wards 18 and 19 at Castle Hill Hospital

An eventful and interesting installation at Castle Hill Hospital in Hull. Over a three-week period, S&D Flooring was tasked to supply and install over 1,500 square metres of a variety of luxury carpet tiles and luxury vinyl tiles and sheet vinyl across Wards 18 and 19 on behalf of Ark Interiors – part of the Strata Group.

Ark Interiors and S&D Flooring have a long standing and successful working relationship. It was an easy decision to engage the S&D team when we needed a forward thinking, flooring contractor who could bring our designs to life for the NHS Castle Hill project. Well done to all at S&D for completing our challenging flooring concept on schedule. – Gary Finch, Business Manager for Ark Interiors.

Recreating the freshness of spring

Part of the project brief was to install a design that would help create a clean, open, and fresh atmosphere that reflects a modern and motivating working environment. This is reflected with a neutral colour palette with hints of warms bright colours. One of the many bold features that S&D Flooring installed was a series of warm green carpet Desso Fusion Rock tiles that run through the informal and formal working areas. Adding to this, a contrasting neutral grey Expona Design Roman Limestone Vinyl creates an obvious and visually pleasing walkway that threads through the ward; informally separating other zones.

All we had to do was follow the pattern!

With its many straight lines, block zones and limited curved shapes, installing the products was a relatively straight-forward task, after all, all the S&D Flooring Boys in Blue had to do was follow the pattern. However, during the subfloor preparation, a few issues arose that required some creative thinking for our team of highly skilled floor layers.

When we first attended the site it was apparent that the ward was split up into several areas with different flooring, materials, sub-floor heights and levels. So the first task was to remove all previous flooring materials, screeds and renovation materials to reveal the base. We then used an external contractor to bring the sub-floor to its original state.

Once this was done a moisture test revealed a high reading which meant a DPM was needed to be installed.  We also needed to level the subfloor to receive our floor finishes. To achieve this we installed a sandwich of Ardex NA, Ardex DPM1C and another coat of Ardex NA. Not only did this bring the subfloor to a clean smooth working surface but also eliminated the potential for future problems such as rising moisture.

This project consisted of a three month installation across five storeys at the University of Leeds, School of Fine Arts on behalf of Sewell Construction.

Ever wondered what a renovated Art School looks like?

With over 1,200 square meters of flooring, Luxury Vinyl Tiles, Carpets, Barrier Mattings, Adhesives and Primer S&D Flooring has helped breathe new life into this historic building situated in the heart of Leeds. It’s many corridors and art studios feature a bright and open space fitted with a simple, yet, contemporary 2 mm thickness Forbo Eternal (Mercury) and Surestep Star (Mercury). The contemporary tones offer hints of grey and a unique aesthetic. Surestep Star offers a brighter visual with holographic particles colour matched to the terazzo or natural base colour of each item.

The Forbo Eternal ranges is a high quality heterogeneous sheet vinyl floor covering that fits all general purpose needs in various segments and applications.

Whereas the School’s more quieter small group study and lecture areas feature a range of stylish carpet tiles from the Milliken Nordic Stories Range. The Nordic Stories range brings Scandinavian-influenced color and texture to the floor plane, paying homage to a series of diverse countries that have collectively helped define contemporary design culture. Across the School of Fine Arts five floors S&D Flooring have installed Hidden Plains Ash Blanket HDP119-27 and Tectonic Dark Dansk TTC79-133 Carpet Tiles.

Nordic Stories is inspired by the textural landscape, geological extremes, folklore and modern culture of the Northern Hemisphere. Muted natural tones, black volcanic rock, deep blue lakes, rich golden moss, graphic landforms and bold architecture. – Milliken Carpets
