THE CHALLENGE

Levelling off 100 concrete floors spanning a total of 2,828 square metres (30,440 sq ft) and installing 50 + floors engineered timber flooring in a time & cost efficient manner

THE SOLUTION

Bostik UL-200 was chosen to level off the floors, thanks to its very fast application and cure time, and ability to accept traffic in 2-3 hours. Ultraset HP was used when it came time to install the timber flooring, with it is easy to spread, non-hazardous formula delivering a fast and effective result.

THE RESULT

Faster dry time — Considerable time saving over other Levelling compounds. Allowed 3 x floors to be levelled each week and faster project progression

No mixing needed — open and go, allowed flooring to be installed quickly & efficiently on upper 50 + floors of development

Local production of specified product allowed for prompt delivery to site and no installation delays
