Birkbeck University of London

Classrooms and safety flooring for Birkbeck, University of London

London / Education
Forbo Flotex carpet tiles & Polyflor XL PU vinyl / 2,500m2 and 300m2

We have been the selected education flooring contractor for the Facilities Team at London Birkbeck University across a range of projects.

The brief

Recent projects include classrooms for the Malet Street site and slip-resistant flooring fitted to industry standards: DS/EN 13893 and BSI EN13845.

The action

We began by removing the old floor coverings. As members of the Recofloor and Carpet Recycling UK this old material was taken to be recycled, to reduce the flooring waste going to landfill.

Each classroom required precision subfloor preparation with our team laying 6mm plywood and F.Ball’s 500 Feather Finish to achieve a completely smooth result, before fitting +2,500m2 of waterproof Forbo Nairn Flotex carpet tiles.

In toilet facilities, we laid Instarmac Super Flex 30, before installing DS/EN 13893 compliant slip-resistant Polysafe vinyl using F.Ball F46 and adding 100mm self-cove skirting to meet BSI EN13845 guidelines.

The results

The University now has learning and bathroom facilities fitted with high quality, durable materials, all in line with the latest flooring safety regulations.
