A Sika UK flooring system has recently scooped an accolade for providing the perfect filming platform for ITVs 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 Corries 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 Sikas 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 were thrilled to have won this award!
