Atkinson & Kirby has provided a Red Oak bespoke flooring solution to complete refurbishment works at the National Museum of Scotland.
The National Museum of Scotland boasts a significant collection of internationally renowned pieces, including technology, fashion, science, design and art. It has recently undergone a complete refurbishment.
To satisfy the requirement for new service ducts and access points, the atrium and gallery areas of the museum needed to be removed.
The contractors were tasked with sourcing an equivalent option to the original flooring. Initially, they considered combining several hundred individual patches to recreate the exact look throughout the floor areas.
GL Floors suggested a more efficient solution: the floor was lifted, leaving the sub floors exposed, whilst saving the original hardwood covering from ruin. Atkinson and Kirby was contracted to develop a custom Red Oak floor to complement the original Red Oak strip floors.
The floor was fitted around the recently installed service ducts and access points.
“Sourcing the matching flooring was a challenge,” admits GL Floors’ Managing Director, Martin Smith. “Fortunately, Atkinson & Kirby was able to create a bespoke floor to match the original hardwood.”
