Following extensive testing of large flooring sample boards provided by Flowcrete to see how the materials would stand up to the daily rigours of animal healthcare, 3,000 sq metres of Flowcrete’s fast-track MMA resin flooring system, Flowfast, was specified by the new clinic for works at the site.
Demonstrating better life-cycle costs as well as short-term cost-effectiveness, Flowfast Terrosso was chosen over traditional tile and vinyl finishes for installation in the new facility’s entrance foyer, waiting area and consulting rooms as well as all treatment, diagnostic, operating and ward areas on the ground floor.
Flowfast Terrosso is a decorative flooring system that uses varying sizes of flakes in a creative mix of colours to create a striking floor finish underfoot. In addition, Flowfast Terrosso offers an adjustable anti-slip profile, delivers a joint-free hygienic finish and can be applied over ‘green’ concrete to deliver a ready-to-use floor finish under a quick turnaround. Flowcrete’s Flowfast Quartz – which uses colourful quartz aggregates – was also used in the clinic’s reception area to create a decorative contrast to the Flowfast Terrosso.
Work at the site also included the installation of 3,000 sq metres of Flowcrete’s semi-dry cementitious floor screed, Isocrete K-Screed, which was laid over an underfloor heating system in certain areas, to smooth out the surface of the floor prior to the installation of final floor finishes.
