Adamson Construction was awarded the contract to refurbish the amenities area of a large working food factory. The bulk of the project was to lay new flooring which included up to 400mm cove throughout along with painting and decorating. The factory facilities were to remain in use for the duration of the project.
The first task was to install over 300 temporary lockers in a separate area to ensure staff had sufficient welfare facilities. The permanent lockers were then protected to ensure no damage during the works.
The works were divided into four phases to enable continued use of other areas. The first area was then sealed off and extraction installed to remove any dust and fumes. The preparation of the floor in the first section was then carried out by grinding the old floor tiles to remove the gloss surface to obtain a key for the new epoxy floor surface. Loose or damaged tiles were removed and those sections of the floor were screeded. Any noisy works which needed to be carried out during normal working hours were coordinated with client meetings to avoid disruption.
The floor was primed and then the Flowcrete Peran STB Classic epoxy flooring was laid to the floor, locker stands and seating tiles. This was also carried out on two sets of stairs in appropriate phases. The floor was grouted and then sealed using Flowcrete PU matt seal to create an appropriate finish.
The walls and ceilings were then decorated and wall mirrors and new corner and locker end panel protection were installed. The area was then cleaned down and protection removed.
On completion of phase 1, the remaining phases were carried out in sequence until completion. Once completed the temporary lockers were then removed.
