Sika appointed to school refurbishment

30  Sika will deliver a 2,000m2 Comfortfloor system to the new Castle Hill SchoolSika’s commercial flooring team has started work on an ambitious school refurbishment in Stockport, Greater Manchester.

Appointed by Thelwell Flooring, Sika has designed and will deliver a 2,000m2 Comfortfloor system to the new Castle Hill School building in Offerton, which main contractor ISG is delivering as part of the influential North West Construction Hub capital works framework.

Described as ‘liquid applied vinyl’ because of its seamless finish, Sika’s Comfortfloor range has been specified throughout multiple classrooms and hallways because of its suitability to be applied over various existing floor finishes – in this case granwood tiles.

A recent addition to the Sika decorative flooring range, the Comfortfloor anti-slip polyurethane resin floor system offers unlimited design possibilities, an impact sound reduction of 17Db, high resistance to UV light, and can even be refreshed to reduce maintenance costs.

Richard Kay, Sika Flooring Area Sales Manager, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Thelwell Flooring on the refurbishment of this building, which will provide the new location for Castle Hill School. With testing to the existing floors complete work will now start on the installation of the versatile Comfortfloor system.”

Sika’s decorative floorings and coatings are ideal for a wide range of markets including retail, offices, healthcare, leisure, education and food and drink.
The school is scheduled to open in September 2014.
