BEST PRACTICE AWARDS SHORTLIST
FeRFA are pleased to announce the following shortlist for the 2018 Best Practice Awards.
SMALL INDUSTRIAL PROJECT OF THE YEAR (Sponsored by Boud Minerals)
CENTRAL FLOORING SERVICES & RESDEV
Project: Hilton Hotel, Leeds
A resin floor system was the ideal choice for the 6th floor kitchen area of the Hilton Hotel in Leeds. Replacing the existing tiled floor with a new state of the art industrial resin floor provided a seamless hygienic solution for a busy catering kitchen where hygiene and drainage were at the forefront of the project.

ACC FLOORING & RESDEV
Project: Mibelle AG – Main Manufacturing Unit, Bradford
A fit-for-purpose flooring design with an eye-catching appearance was a critical factor for this installation; the floor finish needed to leave a lasting impression on clients and visitors, but above all needed to be functional and safe for the workforce.
Products: Resdev Pumadur HF
IRL GROUP & REMMERS
Project: Swiftool Precision Engineering Limited, Sutton in Ashfield
This floor was transformed from a tired looking space to a newly refurbished workshop area and walkway colour matched by in-pail tainting. The project was completed within 72 hours causing minimum disruption, meaning the client was able to showcase their facilities to a potential high-profile customer.
Products: Remmers Epoxy Flex PH
LARGE INDUSTRIAL PROJECT OF THE YEAR (Sponsored by ACO Building Drainage)
CENTRAL FLOORING SERVICES & FLOWCRETE
Project: Lemonpath Warehouse Refurbishment
Environmental targets were met on this project when an old asphalt floor was removed using a £500,000 piece of equipment which enabled waste to be taken away directly for recycling, diverting approximately 100 tonnes of waste from landfill.
This project demonstrates the full force of industrial flooring using innovative techniques to remove existing flooring and the most cutting-edge technology and plant, reducing carbon footprint, man hours and manual labour.
Products: Flowcrete Pump Screed and Peran SL
INTEGRATED FLOORING TECHNOLOGIES & FLOWCRETE
Project: The Macallan Distillery, Scotland
Aesthetics were a critical aspect of this project, with over 21,000 square metres of flooring to be installed within a complex facility in a remote location. By using resin flooring this ensured that the floors in the industrial spaces would maintain a functional, visually attractive finish for a long period of time, with tourist areas having to withstand foot traffic of approximately 50 – 60,000 visitors per annum.
Products: Flowfresh, Peran SL, Flowcrete Quartz Structure
IRL GROUP & SIKA
Project: Willesden Depot, London
The three layer Sikafloor Pronto RB-25 was used in the refurbishment of platform areas at Willesden Rail Maintenance Depot in London. Bright colours were used to help highlight the platform edges and safe walking zones.
Products: Sikafloor Pronto RB-25
SMALL COMMERCIAL PROJECT OF THE YEAR (Sponsored by Innoveo)
ACC FLOORING & ALTRO
Project: Central Processing Unit, Sheffield Teaching Hospital
This refurbishment of a Central Processing Unit needed to deliver a flooring solution which not only enhanced the appearance of the floor surface, but also satisfied the requirements of durability, slip-resistance, hygiene and ease of cleaning. These were all met by using the Altro Crete resin flooring system.
Products: Altro Crete 6 mm slip-resistant variant
ZIRCON FLOORING & SIKA
Project: Leeds Art University
High-skill levels were required on this TV studio project to ensure that a super-flat floor was achieved. The performance of the specified products was crucial to create the ideal floor for the environment. It was required to be level, durable, smooth as well as aesthetically-pleasing and safe from damage caused by static electricity.
Products: Sikafloor 161, Level 30, 220W, Sika Earthing Kit & 262ASN
LARGE COMMERCIAL PROJECT OF THE YEAR (Sponsored by Stallard Kane Associates)
CENTRAL FLOORING SERVICES & RESDEV
Project: Triumph Motorcycles – New Tour Route
Triumph recently opened its doors to the public with their new tour route. The walking route for the tour had to flow correctly and stand out from the rest of the factory; this was achieved with the installation of Resdev’s polyurethane coatings, which were applied in 3 coats of bright yellow with a black line through the centre and an arrow to point in the right direction. As the factory is ever changing, the product needed to be able to fit in with the fast paced changes of the factory layout; the time scale allowed was extremely tight with little room for error.

ZIRCON FLOORING & RESDEV
Project: BodyHoliday, Saint Lucia
Covering an area of over 250 m2 and subdivided into sections, bringing the kitchen areas up to standard was an integral part of a $20 million refurbishment at the BodyHoliday resort in St Lucia. A clean, fresh and practical flooring system using resin flooring successfully transformed the food preparation area. This was a demanding task with both temperature and humidity levels presenting challenges for the storage, installation and curing of products. The project also required meticulous planning to ensure that all materials were shipped from East Yorkshire to St Lucia.

COATECH & FLOWCRETE
Project: Menai Science Park (M-Sparc), Gaerwen, Anglesey
The resin flooring on this project needed to reflect the high-tech, architecturally innovative principles that the new business centre was built around, and was met by using a combination of systems in a unique layout. Matching products were used internally, externally, on pathways around the building and in the courtyard areas to give the impression of the surfaces flowing from inside the building through to the outside and vice-versa.
Products: Flowcrete Peran Comfort, Flowcrete Rustik Glamourstone
