State of the art aerospace project wins award

A brand-new state of the art building has been constructed by bringing together two existing aging facilities at CDS Solihull to achieve an award winning project.

This advanced aerospace manufacturing, research and development facility produces engine control systems for a range of applications, including the Rolls-Royce Trent family of aircraft engines. The flooring needed to fulfil the clients high standards and requirements for chemical resistance and a slip resistant finish. IRL Group carried out the complex project in which a total 9,500m2 of resin flooring, which consisted of: Chemical Resistant Flooring with Chemical Resistant Wall Render, Epoxy Conductive Flooring System with an Anti-Slip Textured Finish and finally, Remmers Self Smoothing Epoxy Resin with a Slip Resistant Seal Coat. To complement the floors, 3500m (2.1 miles) of Remmers Epoxy Cove Skirting were also installed. This project was chosen as the winner of the 2016/17 FeRFA Large Industrial Project of the Year Award.
