Forbo has supplied an attractive fully integrated flooring solution for the University of Bedfordshire’s new £34m multi-purpose Campus Centre building in Luton.
Tessera and Westbond carpet tiles form the main components of the University’s flooring design, specified by the Facilities and Estates Department and brought to life by Hi-Tech Flooring Ltd of Dunstable. In corridors, common areas and offices, Tessera Alignment cut and loop tiles in three muted shades have been used to create individual flooring zones, separated by smooth flowing curves, hand cut on site. Westbond Flex cut pile tiles in bespoke colourways provide style and comfort in the lecture theatre, circulation areas and breakout rooms, whilst Westbond Natural tiles in a rich blend of natural, undyed wool have been installed in the management suite.
Safestep R11 safety flooring has been installed in the kitchen and food service areas and Coral Brush Activ and Nuway Tuftiguard rigid engineered entrance mats complete the floor scheme.
Nick Perkins, Sales Director at Hi-Tech Flooring Ltd, commented: “With so many elements to piece together, it was very reassuring to know that we were sourcing everything from one supplier who wouldn’t let us down. The fact that Forbo offers an integrated portfolio really helped to streamline the whole ordering process”.
Ash Carline, Capital Projects Manager at the University of Bedfordshire, said: “Overall we are very pleased with the flooring throughout the new Campus Centre and are potentially looking to re-specify some of the products on future projects.”
