A variety of commercial vinyl floorcoverings from Polyflor were selected for a £3 million refurbishment project at Campus Centre, De Montfort University in Leicester. Designed by CPMG Architects, the newly renovated Campus Centre is the home of De Montfort’s Student Union (DSU) and a hub for student life, including shops, cafes, break out areas and offices.
High performance Expona Design luxury vinyl tiles in Cool Grey Concrete were used throughout the student union building in circulation areas, corridors and staircases. Featuring 28 stunning wood, stone and abstract effects, the heavy commercial Expona Design luxury vinyl tile collection has a 3.0mm gauge, 0.7mm wear layer and is enhanced with Polyflor’s exclusive and robust PUR polyurethane reinforcement which is cross linked and UV cured to provide a fuss-free cleaning and maintenance regime.
The Campus Centre, which opened in early 2017, also features flooring from Polyflor’s Expona Commercial, Classic Mystique, Polysafe Apex and Polysafe Verona ranges in toilet areas, restaurant kitchens and the student union’s music venue. All flooring was installed by Westcotes Flooring, working under main contractors Stepnell.
Cristina Riley, Interior Designer at CPMG Architects commented, “We chose to use Polyflor commercial luxury vinyl tiles and sheet vinyl flooring on this project as there was a great choice of designs to select from, and a wealth of specifications to cater to the varying needs of different spaces across Campus Centre.”
