IFT installs flooring at a Distillery and Visitor Centre
IFT was appointed by a flooring contractor to install flooring as part of the £10.5 million, three-year refurbishment programme at Bunnahabhain, which aims to transform a distillery and visitor centre into a world-class whisky destination.
IFT installed 140m² of Mapei Topcem screed onto an underfloor heating system at a new visitor centre. Following this, Mapei Ultratop Industrial and Mapefloor sealant were added to provide a finished floor.
This job was a huge logistical challenge for the IFT team as there is no suitable sand source on the island. To combat this we used a manufaturer who brought in bulk bags of washed concrete sand from the mainland at our request and the Topcem was taken across by a shipping service. This was all arranged during IFT pre-start visits to the island, working together with local labour working on the site asking them about sand sources.
