Flowcrete’s seamless terrazzo sets the scene at prestigious office development

  • 28 Jul 2021

Flowcrete Mondéco Rapide seamless terrazzo is setting the right first impression underfoot at a prestigious office development in Leeds. 

Mondéco Rapide in pure white gives a contemporary aesthetic to this new build development, in-keeping with the stunning, design-led environment. 

The seamless terrazzo range is engineered for a faster installation and – once in-situ – to effortlessly stand the test of time.

A five component, rapid curing resin terrazzo floor system, it provides a durable, non-porous luxurious finish, with extensive flexible design properties and UV light resistance.

“Flowcrete Mondéco Rapide’s technology really does bring seamless terrazzo to the next level,” she says.

“Mondeco is very popular with architects and interior designers due to its beauty and versatility, we can tailor the product to create a contemporary or traditional aesthetic by changing the colours and aggregates.

“Because of its flexible design properties, durability, and UV light resistance, it is the ideal choice to deliver style and substance in a wide variety of locations.

“The project at Leeds highlights how it can be used to make a great first impression.”

Flowcrete specification team assisted Sheppard Robson with the selection of the floor finish in-keeping with the high-end development. 

Jonathon McCrone, Project Architect at Sheppard Robson, comments: “Selecting the right floor was key to the appearance and feel of the entrance area and we are delighted with the results.”

Flowcrete approved contractor Milestone Industrial Flooring Ltd, of Pontefract, worked to stringent safety and sustainability standards to apply the floor finish, including COVID-19 protocols, as well as specialist monitoring activities to ensure local businesses and shops on the site boundary could operate without any limitations.

Peter Harrison, Managing Director at Milestone Industrial Flooring, says: “With traditional epoxy systems, long programmes, curing time and a lack of flexibility mean that typically terrazzo projects slow down construction programmes.  

“However, installing the Mondéco Rapide system allows us to deliver a high-quality bespoke system within a fraction of the time. 

“Having completed a number of Mondéco Rapide projects, we have gained the knowledge and expertise to streamline the process each time.

“Thanks to our skilled teams and extensive range of hi-tech machinery, we have enjoyed great success using the system on this prestigious Leeds office project as well as many others.”

Responsible waste management was also a priority. This was achieved through effective project planning, measuring areas accurately for the materials required, and reusing or recycling waste where appropriate.  

The floor’s longevity is another key sustainability factor, with Flowcrete Mondéco Rapide’s exceptional durability and heat conductivity cutting out potential emissions and resources that would be needed for a replacement floor in years to come.

Not only does CPG UK have a wide range of exceptional products, their customers also have access to enhanced resources. These include technical support and NBS specification writing from industry experts. 

Full training, including RIBA Approved CPDs currently delivered virtually, application training (both practical and theory) and on-site technical support complete the service package.
