St Andrew Holborn has stood as a Catholic Church for over 1,000 years. Completed at the end of 2018, the latest refurbishments spanned the entire internal area of the church, including some 600sq mof flooring in the main church area and its surrounding rooms, as well as its vestibules and tower. Consisting of old vinyl tiling, it was worn and damaged and was replaced with new Hopton Wood Limestone. The existing base was also removed and replaced with a high-strength, rapid drying screed that could work within the client’s limited time constraints.
A full site visit helped ARDEX to understand the project and client requirements, and the works were completed in December. The contractor says: “Throughout the process ARDEX gave us technical support and advice on how to overcome some of the challenges we faced and assisted us with formulating a suitable specification for the screed, adhesive and grouts used.”
