Enfield Grammar School is taking the development of their young athletes very seriously. Keen to give their students the best opportunity to reach their sporting potential, the school invested in a state-of-the-art sports facility.
The team at Hillingdon Flooring Company were proud to be selected to install the flooring for the school’s new purpose built fitness centre. The project was completed in association with the leading fitness and wellbeing provider, Nuffield Health.
The project involved supplying and installing flooring specific to each of the six different training areas. Non-slip safety sports flooring was installed in the gym and the cardio zone, with specialised heavyweight tiled flooring for the strength training areas and free weights zone. The school’s athletes take their training seriously, with a functional training rig as well as a dedicated Spin studio and group exercise studio, so it was essential the flooring selected was up to the job and fit for purpose.
The new suite has transformed the training experience for all the school’s sport teams and budding athletes. Students now have a dedicated space for countless functional training exercises, where they can train as a group or in one-to-one sessions, to work towards achieving their sporting potential.
The total refurbishment of the new purpose built £11.8 million Intensive Care Unit (CU) at The Royal Free Hospital, is a project which the team at Hillingdon Flooring are proud to have been part of.
The project involved the total gutting and refurbishment of two of the hospital wards and has revolutionised the way this specialised department works. By bringing everything together on to one floor and providing a modern, bright and spacious environment, the unit is now able to treat many more patients than before. Each of the 34 beds is equipped to provide the highest level of care to 1,100 ICU patients every year. There are also 14 individual side rooms for patients who need to be nursed in isolation, with specialised ventilation systems to help prevent the spread of infection and isolate patients at risk of infection.
The complex design of the flooring and the logistical constraints of this project required detailed planning by the team at Hillingdon Flooring. By using their expertise in managing projects of this nature, and working in partnership with the other contractors on site, the team were able to complete the works without any disruption to the day to day operation of one of London’s busiest hospitals. And of course, it was all done with meticulous hygienic standards, and completed on time and within budget.

The recent refurbishment of the 204 studios and 42 one-bed flats involved removal of furniture and the disposal of uplifted flooring. The studios and flats are all self-contained with a shower room, small kitchen area and a balcony and with the refurbishment complete, they have been brought up to date with a fresh modern scheme.
The team at Hillingdon Flooring supplied and installed new flooring within all units incorporating new stain and odour proof carpets in addition to replacing heavy duty carpets throughout the communal areas. The team worked carefully to minimise the disruption to the tenants and where possible worked around typical hospital shift patterns being mindful of those living and sleeping there whilst the work was being completed.

The result is a style that truly says ‘statement living’.
Dee Park in Reading is being transformed into a dynamic new living environment, thanks to a £150 million regeneration project. The joint venture between one of the UK’s leading construction companies, Catalyst Housing and Reading Borough Council led to the creation of The Dee Park Partnership, which is managing the project to replace the existing 1960s buildings with contemporary-styled private and affordable homes.

A combination of engineered hardwood and twist pile carpets are being fitted in the homes, with safety flooring and Hospi-care carpet being installed in the extra care unit. Homes at Dee Park are amongst the best value in Reading and with Help to Buy, more families have the opportunity to get onto the property ladder.

Hillingdon Flooring Company have completed several Independent Living Schemes, including Iris Court in Reading which was officially opened earlier this year.
The new homes for older people at Iris Court are set in a beautiful conservation area with landscaped gardens which retain their traditional Victorian style.
The recent development of the site involved the demolition of the 1960s sheltered accommodation, which has been a replaced with 43 purpose built apartments, designed and built to complement the conservation status of the area. The apartments provide the opportunity for those aged 50 and over, to benefit from affordable rent, and the opportunity to live independently but with the security of having the support of on-site staff should they need it. The all-important social activities are provided in the grade II listed rectory building, including a hobby studio and workshop.
Hillingdon Flooring supplied and installed the flooring for all 43 apartments, which included sub floor preparation to all areas and fitting of safety flooring in the fully accessible bathrooms, luxury vinyl tiles to kitchens as well as carpet to the living and community areas. At all times, our teams worked with respect and understanding for the people who live, work and visit Iris Court.
Oak Tree House is a sheltered housing scheme in Reading, offering care and support for residents with a range of needs – from those who are active and have few care needs to those requiring more involved support.
There are 60 modern apartments arranged around a central courtyard, each with its own living /dining area, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
Working in close collaboration with the scheme’s designers, the team at Hillingdon Flooring found solutions to some unique challenges. As with all our projects, we aim to meet and exceed expectations by focusing on the needs of the end users. Our recommendation to ensure floor levels remained the same throughout, means that residents with wheel chairs and walking frame don’t have the struggle of step changes in doorways and between different floor finishes.
Muriel Cook, one of the first residents said; "They’ve thought of everything – I can’t praise Oak Tree House enough. The extra care and fantastic facilities means that I won’t have to go into a nursing home." The scheme which includes a hair salon, community rooms, shared library and a communal café have helped encourage social interaction and build a unique community. Another project we have been privileged to be a part of.
The Harte & Garter Hotel dates back to the 14th century, originally as two inns, which were joined together in the late 19th century. Located in the heart of historic Windsor, the hotel has been given a new lease of life as a result of a £7.5 million refurbishment.
The redevelopment project has successfully transformed a somewhat dingy inn into a stylish hotel with 79 bedrooms, many with unrivalled views of the magnificent Windsor Castle. There are also 7 elegant private dining & meeting rooms, a luxurious health and beauty spa and a new brasserie restaurant.
The refurbishment was managed carefully to ensure that the original features were restored to their unique charm, whilst bringing the facilities up to date with fresh modern décor. The team at Hillingdon Flooring worked with the designers, to ensure that the floor coverings throughout the hotel were selected appropriately, to be in keeping with the character of the building whilst being fit for purpose. The result is a successful and unique blend of the traditional and contemporary.
The £5.5 million refurbishment of Watford Colosseum was several years in the making and HQ Theatres, who manage the Colosseum, are thrilled with the result. It’s been brought back to its former Art Deco glory, central to which is the bespoke carpet for the theatre flooring, based on patterns which were created using a copy of an original Art Deco stained glass window.
Located in the heart of Watford, the project was not without its challenges. With Watford Town Hall, The Peace Children’s Hospice and West Hertfordshire College Campus right next door, along with a busy public car park, logistics had to be managed carefully.

Registered under the Considerate Constructors Scheme, the project was visited twice, scoring 35 and 34.5 against an industry average score of 31. In recognition of this achievement, each site team member was awarded £35. The Hillingdon Flooring team decided to donate the money they were awarded to the Peace Children’s Hospice, as part of their commitment to Corporate Responsibility.
