Norcros Adhesives has been involved with a complete remodelling of a VW Lookers car showroom on Teesside.
The project took place over five months, throughout which time the dealership was in constant use, and was completed in January this year. The client required the premises to be completely reorientated, so that was the workshop became the showroom, and vice versa.
The remodelling created a number of challenges with regard to levels and the whole floor required scabbling. Norcros Pro 50 Levelling Compound was used and Norcros Rapid Porcelain Grey S1 Tile Adhesive to fix 600mm x 300mm and 200mm x 200mm porcelain tiles. The total tiled area is 3,500sq metres. Norcros 4 into 1 Wall & Floor Tile Grout was used for all grouting, with colour-matched Norcros 4 into 1 Silicone Sealant for perimeter movement joints.
The main contractor was northeast company STP Construction Ltd and the tiling contractor was Tileform Ltd, who have offices in Durham and Glasgow. Tileform and Norcros Adhesives have collaborated on projects previously, and a good relationship now exists between the two companies.
“This was an extremely interesting project to be involved with,” says Graham Mitchell, Managing Director of Tileform, “not just because of how good the finished project looks and the aesthetics of it, but also due to the site being live and in use by the client during the works. This meant that the timescales were tight, there were a lot of trades on-site and the work was intensive. But thanks to good relationships with the main contractor and other sub-contract trades, the result was of high quality by all involved.”
The Norcros Adhesives products used on this project, like all the company’s tiling and floor preparation products benefit from a lifetime guarantee.
