Atkinson & Kirby provides a lesson in Engineered Oak Flooring style at the Heriot Watt University

Atkinson & Kirby has helped to add style to the James Watt Building at the Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh.

Established in 1821, Heriot-Watt is a specialist university, renowned for its innovative research, with five campuses across the world including, Edinburgh, Scottish Borders, Orkney, Dubai and Malaysia.

The James Watt Building, in the Edinburgh campus, has recently undergone a number of improvements to enhance the university’s facilities, with one of the more notable changes being the addition of new Engineered Oak Flooring.

McKay Flooring, the key contractor for the project, supplied Atkinson & Kirby’s Engineered Oak range of flooring in the shade ‘natural’, to compliment the building’s rich history and enhance the overall look and feel for student and visitors.

With the high level of footfall the James Watt Building receives on a daily basis, the inclusion of a durable, long-lasting and eye-catching flooring was a much needed additio

Stephen Fraser, from McKay Flooring said: “We are proud of the work that has been undertaken for the Herriot Watt University, the Atkinson & Kirby engineered oak was ideal for the project, fitting in with both the character and style of the building.”

Zara Prescott, Communications Executive for Atkinson & Kirby said: “We are really pleased that our engineered oak flooring has been chosen as a valuable edition to the university. Our wide range of engineered flooring makes us ideal for applications such as this. Being an engineered product, this particular range will offer excellent performance for years to come in this busy university setting.”
