WE’VE GOT IT COVERED!
Customer service is at the heart of everything the Gainsborough Flooring team deliver, whether that’s a carpet for your home or hard wearing flooring for commercial premises, writes Meena McDonald Photography: Jack Pomfret
The team at Gainsborough Flooring have recently completed a number of innovative and contemporary commercial projects throughout Lancashire across sectors such as education, leisure, restaurants and hotels.
Lancaster University recently undertook a major refurbishment of their LEC Building which is home to a community of high-achieving students, world-class environmental researchers, government scientists and enterprises working together to address today’s biggest environmental challenges. It was therefore important when considering design features that the look and feel of the refurbished space reflected the people that use it.
The Gainsborough Flooring team recommended the environmentally friendly 100 per cent recyclable Bolon Silenced Balanced Planks. The unique weaving technique used to create this flooring gives depth and structure and generates stunning 3D effects and playful light reflections. The flooring was split into four colours with two designs, one landscape and one portrait, to create a unique and effective pattern in The Atrium of the LEC Building.
Cardinal Newman College in Preston also undertook a major refurbishment during the summer, revamping the corridor in the St Bede Building as well as the reception area, the library and the corridor in the St Wilfred Building.
Following consultation with the college on their requirements, the Gainsborough Flooring team installed a combination of Forbo Eternal Wood and a mixture of all the Shaw Active Tiles. The Forbo Eternal Wood collection contains a large variety of realistic wood designs and plank sizes, including some multi-width plank designs and contain a 0.7mm wear layer that ensures maximum wear resistance and excellent appearance retention, ideal for a college environment with heavy footfall. The Shaw Active carpet tile collection fuses bold colours and graphic patterns and includes four designs in a vibrant palette of 14 colours with EcoWorx tile backing.
Clients are exceptionally complimentary about the project management service the Gainsborough Flooring team deliver including their professional fitting service, particularly as the flooring is inevitably the last thing to be fitted once all other refurbishment has been completed, and therefore has to be meticulously planned to ensure it is installed on time, obviously without cutting any corners! This is especially critical in an educational environment when students are expected back on the premises at the end of the holidays.
