high-profile project, for which Sika supplied the quality flooring solution,
has collected a prized industry accolade.
Sika, in collaboration with Zircon Flooring, achieved
a ‘Highly Commended’ status in the Large Commercial Project of the Year

Pete Hollingworth at Sika
said: “What fantastic news. The ITV project was a model collaborative effort
between Sika and Zircon Flooring. To have our efforts recognised at the FeRFA
awards, which celebrate the very finest in resin flooring, is a tribute to the
expertise and diligence of all those involved. We were up against strong
competition from entrants across the UK in the large commercial category, which
makes our Highly Commended award particularly noteworthy.”
The FeRFA awards celebrate the workmanship, diversity,
innovation and commitment to quality and training shown by its 130-plus
members. This year’s winners were announced at a ceremony in Nottingham, which also commemorated FeRFA’s 50th
year as the ‘voice of the resin industry’.
For the ITV studio floor refurbishment, Zircon
installed Sikafloor® MultiDur ES-24 ECF across a
788m2 surface area. A proven system for TV studio/media projects on
account of its protective, electrostatic conductive self-smoothing properties, Sikafloor® MultiDur ES-24
ECF ensured the new surface achieved the required floor tolerance of +/- 1mm over a 3-metre
straight edge, which is a requirement for HD and the new 4K filming.
Pete at Sika added: “Sika’s culture of innovation also deserves credit for this latest FeRFA award. It means we have a product-based solution to suit a range of complex flooring requirements.”

has been a driving force for technological advancement and expansion of the
range of qualifications in the resin flooring industry via FeRFA and by leading
the way in best practice.
said: “I am proud of the fact that back in 2007 five of our employees gained
the very first NVQ Level-2 qualification and were part of the first cohort of
19 to do so nationally, and that those same employees continue to work at
Reprotec today and have progressed in their careers. More recently, one of the original cohort
achieved NVQ Level 6 through the FeRFA Contracts Management Pilot-Scheme. He is now ‘Head of Operations’ and an
excellent role-model for advancement within the Industry.” It is no surprise
that Reprotec has held ‘Investor in People’ award since 2006.
John’s philosophy is not to
‘sell’ services and products, but to ‘educate’ customers about resin
applications and as part of this, his other passion of environmental
sustainability was acknowledged by the award.
This includes working with reputable suppliers to promote
environmentally sustainable products in line with all standards and integrating
his ‘Green Theme’ throughout his company. His environmentally sustainable
conscience and continual improvements are at the forefront of his passion for
Resin Flooring, opening up opportunities within new market sectors.
John said: “It’s been a great year. We started the year by winning NEPIC ‘SME of the Year 2019’ and ended the year with the FeRFA ‘Outstanding Contribution’ Award. It is a privilege to gain awards however to be recognised by ones’ peers within your own profession makes it extra special. I am delighted to accept the award but behind every achievement there is a team effort, and I would like to thank Team Reprotec for their hard work and support.”
