Healthcare Projects in Safe Hands with Bostik
We find that the combination of Bostik’s reliable product quality and excellent technical support allows us to get the job done accurately time and again.
Michael Day, Operations Manager, Orchard Flooring
Orchard Flooring is contracted to fit flooring in new build and renovation projects for Avery Healthcare, a leading provider of residential and nursing care homes across the UK. The success of this partnership is built on Orchard’s reputation for quality and efficiency, and a recent new development in Stoke-on-Trent has highlighted how the company relies on the performance and technical support offered by Bostik to help deliver this.
The new residential care home at Hanford Court in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire offers sixty-one residential beds as well as provision for further nursing care. When planning on how best to fit out the circa 3,300m2 of floor space, one of Orchard’s first steps was to work with the Bostik technical support department to assess which products would be suitable for the job.
This involved a site visit to assess the project, which confirmed that a damp proof membrane was required for around 700 m2 of the floorspace. With getting the job completed on time a key priority, Bostik’s Screedmaster Rapid DPM was used, because it allows a high quality DPM to be laid and ready in as little as one hour.
To level the floors, Bostik Screedmaster 2 Ultimate smoothing compound was selected. Screedmaster 2 Ultimate is a two component, protein-free latex smoothing compound, perfect for smoothing sound, uneven floors prior to the laying of any decorative floor coverings. When mixed it provides impressive 6m2 coverage as well as being low odour. The excellent workability of the product once again helped Orchard to complete the job to a high standard and on time.
On his company’s work with Bostik, Michael Day, Operations Manager of Orchard Flooring commented:
“I have been in the flooring industry for over twenty years, and have always used Bostik products. We find that the combination of reliable product quality and excellent technical support allows us to get the job done as accurately as possible time and again.
“For major clients such as Avery and their Hanford Court project, time is money and so getting the job done to a high standard within deadlines is crucial to our continued work with them. Bostik’s technical support and high quality products really helped us to achieve that.”
