New Marie Curie Hospice gets slip resistant kitchen

A Degafloor RB system was specified for the kitchen of a new build Marie Curie Hospice through a collaborative approach to project management.

National Flooring successfully completed a high end flooring refurbishment project for Marie Curie Hospice by providing a structured approach to the selection process which involved a variety of stakeholders all of whom had influence over the final product selection. Degafloor FB system, a textured floor finish, was specified to provide adequate slip resistance in the kitchen environment at a new build Marie Curie Hospice. The client was aware that the texture of the system would mean adapting their cleaning regime and National Flooring arranged for the team at Marie Curie to view another installation near the local area to view the floor in a live kitchen environment including the clean down process at the venue. The project showcased the company’s ability to provide high levels of customer service at every stage of the development and manage a process where a number of stakeholders are involved. A single point of contact was maintained throughout the tender design and construction, which helped to coordinate all the stakeholders and manage the process more efficiently. A project manager was assigned to the job and attended all pre contract meetings to ensure that the installation ran efficiently. All deliveries were completed in one drop and all waste was bought back to the company warehouse to be recycled as appropriate. Willmott Dixon organised an open day for the local community to view the new build and raise money for the hospice.
