Global Hotel Chain Chooses Conica Resin Flooring

Conifloor industrial resin flooring has been installed in the basement of the new Tower of London citizenM hotel.

citizenM hotels offer an affordable, luxury boutique experience with a distinctly stylish feel. The hotel chain is undergoing significant expansion to create a global portfolio of hotels, located in prime locations in major cities and international airports. Conica’s Conifloor IPS resin flooring was chosen to be installed in 459m2 of the hotel basement. The installation was especially challenging from day one, given the working environment, a very limited timeframe and the project scheduling constraints. The 459m2 basement floor was first prepared by diamond grinding, before two coats of Conifloor 110 primer were applied and then dried. Following this, a 2mm thick coat of Conifloor 420 was applied before a final coat of Conifloor 520 CW. Coving details were equally fastidious, including a coat of Conifloor 110 primer and an application of epoxy mortar to a height of 200mm and two coats of Conifloor 520 CW. Conifloor IPS is an ideal system for all types of industrial floors and is especially suitable for floors of medium resilience. The three-layer, low-emission polyurethane system is quick and easy to apply and is distinguished by its high durability. The Tower of London citizenM has 370 luxury rooms and is the second London hotel for the chain. Opening in July 2016, Conica hopes the installation will mark the beginning of an on-going partnership between all those involved.
