Weatherfield Wonder: Sika Scoops Flooring Award

Weatherfield Wonder: Sika Scoops Flooring Award

A Sika UK flooring system has recently scooped an accolade for providing the perfect filming platform for ITV’s hit soap Coronation Street. The Weatherfield wonder has been named ‘Large Project of the Year’ at the prestigious industry awards, the annual Best Practice Awards hosted by FeRFA (The Resin Flooring Association.)

ITV approached Sika requiring a robust and sustainable industrial flooring system for Corrie’s studios at MediaCityUK, in Trafford. The flooring had to be extremely hardwearing to cater to the high volume of heavy equipment used on set, as well as perfectly smooth to facilitate the fluid and safe movement of HD camera devices.

Sika worked with Stewart Draper, owner and director of resin floor installers Zircon Flooring Ltd, an approved industrial flooring contractor. Together, they devised an innovative solution utilising Sika’s high-performance, self-smoothing, epoxy resin floors. Stewart Draper, Director at Zircon, added: “Having worked closely with Sika over the past decade we have got TV studio flooring off to a fine art and the finished floor in grey looks absolutely superb – and we’re thrilled to have won this award!”
