Amtico Flooring transforms Scottish University with vibrant makeover

Amtico Flooring transforms Scottish University with vibrant makeover

Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, is the eighth oldest higher education institute in the UK and Scotland’s most international university. When it set about refurbishing Café Brio, which sits at the heart of the campus, the university chose the Amtico Signature collection.

The vibrant colours and laying patterns of the Amtico Signature collection proved the ideal way to give the space a much-needed makeover.

Bold and Beautiful

Durability was a priority in order to withstand the heavy footfall from the 10,500 students and staff based at the Edinburgh campus.

Thomas Day, Head of Hospitality Services, had previously specified Amtico Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) in another café area and was pleased with how hardwearing that floor was.

The brief was to create a feature seating area and vibrant corridor-style walkway to celebrate today’s diverse society, with a nod to the university’s international status and the LGBTQ+ flag.

“Amtico’s design and sales teams were very supportive and made the installation, in partnership with the flooring company, stress-free and seamless.” Said Thomas Day, Head of Hospitality Services at Heriot-Watt University.

Day continued: “The ease, the acclimation and projected longevity of this project means that we are actively looking for the next area to refresh and revitalise, while making flooring something more than just a surface to walk on. Amtico enabled us to make the floor part of the destination.”
