Read how we helped Allen Build with their flooring project

A range of high design and high-performance carpet and flooring was recently installed for an Allen Build social housing refurbishment for twenty-four apartments in Bristol.

Carpet & Flooring was selected to meet the demands for the contractor by supplying a complete flooring package to inject a sense of individuality, and style into the apartments.

Specialist contractor  Knighton Contracts Ltd in Bristol installed the flooring within the apartments to accommodate the bedrooms, living areas, communal corridors and seating areas.

Carpet & Flooring Specification Manager Jamie Driver worked closely with Lee Knighton, Director of Knighton Contracts to assist in finalising the specification. The final flooring installation provided a practical and a stylish finish to compliment the modern interiors within the apartments and to accommodate the tenant’s needs.

Contractors installed 550m² of Carpet & Flooring Eminent Twist in the bedrooms, which is ideal for domestic applications because it offers durability to withstand day-to-day use, without compromising on style. Cool Shades Sovereign Grey, Coronation Cream, Stately Silver were chosen for the bedroom, for a modern feel.

Within the living areas, 750m² of HARO 13.5mm Engineered Oak Sauvage Timber Oak was installed in colour Matt Lacquer.  The effective locking system helped the team to lay the floor down quickly and easily. The wood is designed specifically to reduce the natural swelling and shrinking of wood by up to 70% with its constructive 3-layer.  It is a great choice in terms of sustainability, eco-friendliness, and with the superior engineering of the moisture protection, water drops stay on the surface – making it easy to keep clean.

The CFS Independent range was chosen to provide protection against stains for the communal corridors and seating area within the apartment buildings. It was vital for these areas to be resistant to dirt, water, and stains to help keep the cost of maintenance down. With Independent I-Protect finish guarantee for extensive protection, these areas will be quick to clean and easy to maintain. 250m² of Shades Multi-Line 525 and Fine Twist Col- 528 were chosen to offer a warm welcome for visitors.

Lee Knighton commented: “I had excellent support from the Bristol sales team, including deliveries being on time and support throughout with the specification of the project”.
