Amtico flooring helps provide Aston Villa with stylish new look

Amtico flooring helps provide Aston Villa with stylish new look

When Premier League football team, Aston Villa Football Club, decided to transform one of the hospitality lounges at its home ground – Villa Park – it was in need of practical flooring that could cope with a high level of footfall and provide excellent slip resistance – step up Amtico Spacia 36+!

Benchmark Designs was tasked with converting 18 small hospitality boxes and an existing lounge, in the North Stand, into a brand-new suite – The Gas Lamp.

The brief was to create a modern, yet history-fuelled space, that celebrates the 145-year-old club’s founding story while offering superb pitch views.

The layout for the main hospitality space meant that large areas formed part of the emergency escape route, for this reason Building Control requested that flooring had high slip resistance.

To meet the requirements, Benchmark Designs opted for Amtico’s Spacia 36+ Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) safety floor, which boasts enhanced slip resistance and antimicrobial technology, but with the design possibilities that LVT planks and tiles bring.

Paul Smith, Projects Manager for Benchmark Designs said: “The Gas Lamp was an important project for Aston Villa FC and Benchmark Designs Ltd, bringing an underused area up to high quality hospitality use.”

“Due to the layout of the space, a large proportion of the floor areas were on an escape route and needed to have slip-resistant properties to meet the requirements of Building Control. The Amtico Spacia 36+ range allowed the flooring to be stylish, functional and cost effective” Paul continued.
