Having received the initial enquiry from architects Darnton B3 via our website we worked closely with Altro to provide Haywood & Padgett with cost effective, food industry standard, Altro Crete floor & cove finishes in their new bakery extension.
The £4.8 million project, managed by Simpson (York) Ltd, massively improved the whole facility with new warehousing, welfare areas, offices & exterior works included. However, our works were concentrated in the new production & packing areas where durability & hygiene are a must.
Prior to starting on site the new concrete slabs were moisture tested for suitability for application of the Altro Crete flooring. Due to the high levels of moisture still present, and to enable the project to run on schedule, Altro Proof epoxy DPM was recommended to suppress construction moisture.
The application began with shot blasting of the concrete & cutting anchorage grooves, standard preparation procedures when applying polyurethane systems. The DPM was then applied, swiftly followed by the 8mm thick heavy duty Altro Crete flooring.
Stainless steel birds beak trim was fixed to perimeters with Altro Crete polyurethane coving applied to create a hygienic junction between floor & wall.
