During the Covid-19 crisis, the construction industry has been going through a lot of change. It may be a little while until normality resumes for everyone, and so in the meantime we’re taking a moment to look back at some more of our favourite tiling projects from time gone by.
Bristol’s ND6 & ND7
In late 2019, our Tiling division began work on a prestigious contract worth £600,000 for contemporary flats ND6 & ND7 in Bristol’s city centre, comprising of 376 high quality, long-term residential apartments.
Alongside wood panel flooring for the living rooms, each bathroom and kitchen included black and white microline tiles which are a modern update on the classic metro tile that can often be found in new build developments.
Sir Thomas Rich’s School
The SD team were recruited to completely re-tile Sir Thomas Rich’s School in Gloucester because of our extensive experience in tiling and swimming pools. The school prides itself on its reputation for sporting achievements so it’s essential that the swimming facilities are second to none.
The project took almost three months from start to finish and involved the removal of all existing tiling, followed by a comprehensive grinding for all surfaces. The team then completed repairs to all surfaces inside and outside the pool, which was tanked and re-tiled throughout.
From 2018-19, the tiling team worked on a luxury residential development in Gloucestershire, as part of a highly sought-after contract worth a quarter of a million pounds.
SD carried out extensive tiling work across 42 one and two-bedroom apartments and 25 three and five-bedroom villas that are set over three floors.
Mulberry Park, Bath
Similarly, SD were called upon by Bellway Homes to commence tiling work on its new residential development in Bath, Mulberry Park.
Mulberry Park is a distinctive, contemporary development of 700 high quality homes, community facilities and open spaces, and is built on a former Ministry of Defence site. As part of the project, floor and wall tiles were installed in both bath and reception rooms for the opening of its first homes.
