Mapei UK has specified and supplied products for the installation of wood flooring on an area of 13,000m² throughout the prestigious Berkeley Homes Abell & Cleland Westminster apartment development.
The apartment building comprises one, two, three and four bed apartments and penthouses which have been completed to the highest specification and using Eco-rated products from Mapei’s range of resilient products, for substrate preparation ready to receive the engineered wood flooring.
Jason Mortenson, Project Director from Berkeley Homes (Central London) commented,
“We have used Mapei’s Eco prim T primer with great success, giving us a high quality base before starting our flooring works with the key benefits of being safe, sustainable and easy to use”
Mapei’s Eco prim T is a water based and low VOC solvent free primer for interior use, ideal for priming before installing levelling compounds. At Abell & Cleland, Eco Prim T was used throughout before applying Latexplan Trade to level and smooth the substrate, ready to receive floor coverings.
Ultrabond Eco S940 1K is Mapei’s one-component, solvent and isocyanate-free sililated polymer adhesive with extremely low emissions of VOCs can be used with all types and sizes of engineered wood flooring, hence it’s suitability for the installation at Abell & Cleland. Throughout all apartment flooring in the development, Mapesonic CR sound proofing matt was laid directly below the wooden flooring to offer a 17db sound deadening reduction.
The project director from Loughton Contracts Plc, the flooring contractor responsible for the supply and installation of floor finishes at Abell & Cleland, said:
“The Mapei products were easy to handle and move about with the difficult daily logistical issues we faced, and confidence in application during install was high.”
