Large wins for Flowcrete UK at the FeRFA Awards 2018

  • 3 Dec 2018

Flowcrete UK has won the Large Industrial Project of the Year and Large Commercial Project of the Year categories at the FeRFA 2018 Best Practise Awards.

The Resin Flooring Association (FeRFA) represents major businesses and organisations involved in resin flooring, screeding and surface preparation.

Its annual awards event, this year held at St Johns Hotel, Solihull, on November 23, celebrates the best of the resin flooring industry’s achievements from over the past year.

Flowcrete UK’s MD, Kevin Potter, expressed his pride and delight at this double award success. 

“Winning two categories is a fantastic testament to the hard work and commitment of the Flowcrete UK team as well as the quality of our flooring solutions.

“All the projects that made the shortlist are remarkable showcases of what can be achieved with resin flooring technology and we knew that we faced a lot of stiff competition on the night.

“All-in-all I couldn’t think of a better way to recognise what can be achieved when our products and expertise are combined with architectural innovation and highly trained applicators.”

Collecting the Large Commercial Project of the Year award

At the awards ceremony, Flowcrete UK was first presented with the Large Industrial Project of the Year award, thanks to its work at The Macallan’s stunning new whisky distillery (pictured at header of article).

This was soon followed up by winning the Large Commercial Project of the Year category in recognition of the Menai Science Park’s (M-SParc) Flowcrete UK floor.

The Sandbach, Cheshire, based resin-flooring manufacturer was also nominated in the Innovation Award category for its fast curing terrazzo system Mondéco Rapide.

The two FeRFA winning Flowcrete UK projects are both exciting examples of unique flooring installations.

The Macallan, which was undertaken with applicator partner IFT, posed a range of challenges. The distillery’s floor needed to withstand the demands of high-end whisky production, whilst providing a safe, aesthetically attractive and on-brand finish.

In addition to all this the application work took place at the client’s idyllic but remote Speyside estate during a cold and blustery Scottish winter.

Over 21,000 square metres of Flowcrete UK’s systems ensured the floor in each part of The Macallan’s site was up to the task.

This included a robust polyurethane coating for the production areas, fast curing and slip resistant floors for the main tourist routes, a high-gloss and shiny black epoxy surface in the cask room, a natural-effect stone carpet for the external perimeter as well as other assorted screeds, primers and coatings.

At M-SParc, it was essential the flooring reflected the aesthetics and style of the site’s overarching architectural concept. Therefore, the applicator Coatech installed Peran Comfort in combination with Rustik Glamourstone to create a continuous ribbon of flooring that connected the outside areas to the inside, emulating the building’s pure white external Corian cladding.

The bespoke, decorative finish required had to be completed within a very tight turn-around and in a busy site located in the middle of the Anglesey countryside. The dedication and expertise of Flowcrete UK and Coatech meant the project was finished to the client’s high standards and in time for the science park’s grand opening.
