This luxury development by Oakmayne Properties encompassed 335 apartments within an iconic landmark building designed by award winning architects Allies & Morrison. We worked closely with the main contractor Laing O’Rourke to provide a high-quality installation of circa 10,000m2 of Havwoods engineered timber flooring within the beautiful apartment interiors and over 5,500m2 of Cormar Carpet to bedrooms. We also installed over 3,000m2 of Desso carpet tiles to the corridors, stairs and circulation areas of the 40-floor tower.
Being a tight London site on the busy Elephant & Castle main thoroughfare, we had several logistical challenges to overcome which included a lack of site storage and timed deliveries. To overcome this, we had to plan the carpets in advance. Site measures to every bedroom were completed as required with rolls being cut off site to ensure deliveries on a “just-in-time” basis. Additionally, as FSC certification was a key requirement for this project the timber flooring was procured and delivered in strict accordance with our FSC policy to ensure the full chain of custody remained intact.
Quality is always of the utmost importance and to deliver on this requirement we put in place several quality procedures. A detailed review of the setting out for the timber flooring was undertaken to ensure the correct size cuts met the façade elevations. Strict level surveys were completed to guarantee a flush transition between timber and ceramics finishes. The border plank detail consisted of mitred cornered joints and was machined to match the profile of the herringbone flooring creating a seamless finish between the two.
Our emphasis on quality and meticulous planning ensured we met the clients requirements and achieved the architects exacting design brief.
