Loughton Contracts were appointed by Overbury, to supply and install all floor coverings at Bush House in Holborn, for the well renowned Kings College.
This £900,000 flooring project took place in 2017, with a programme duration of six months. The auditorium, foyer, corridors, offices, lecture theatres and breakout areas were all completely refurbished.
The programme required periods of out of hours working to adhere to the tight schedule, but as usual, we managed to find a way for it to work and be completed to the client’s complete satisfaction. Of course, being a university, there were students occupying the building. All trades worked diligently alongside Overbury to ensure that the students were not interrupted.
This project received the CFJ Installation of the Year Award for ‘Best use of flooring in Education’. The building was re-opened by the Queen shortly after we completed the works, so it was great to see our flooring installation on show for such a momentous event.
