Decorative Quartz Screed at The Kings School, Chester

Flowstone were appointed to carry out the resin flooring works to the swimming pool and changing room areas at The Kings School in Chester.  The flooring works were part of a larger refurbishment project taking place at the popular private school during the summer holidays.

Even though the school space was not in use we implemented a timetable of works that meant the work space would become operational without any inconvenience to the school’s planned works over the holiday period. The aim was to complete the works so that they could be tested and approved well before pupils were expected to return for the autumn semester.

We worked with the school to create a bespoke offer that would meet the requirements of the project; putting together a proposal that would meet both the needs for functionality and durability as well as the aesthetic design stipulations put in place by the school.

Details of the Preparation and Completion of the Project

Flowstone mechanically prepared the floor by way of dust-free diamond grinding using our Blastrac BG250E. This machine is user friendly and comfortable to use with low vibration. It has a strong and powerful buffer system for heavy duty work, and the electric power is ideal when you need a clean,  fume free operation such as in confined spaces or sensitive areas.

The team applied Flowcrete’s Flowfast Quartz Classic at 4mm thickness to the swimming pool and changing room floors. It was applied in a custom blend of Signal Blue and Moss Green to match the school colours.  We carried out 70 linear metres of Flowcrete Flowfast coving around the swimming pool and changing rooms to create a seamless, floor to wall, hygienic box finish.

Flowfast Quartz Classic is a hard-wearing decorative resin floor system developed to enable very fast track applications, typically 2 hours curing time to receive full traffic. This system has high scratch resistance, it is easy to clean and maintain and has excellent resistance to UV light. Flowfast is a popular system due to its decorative finish and fast curing properties and has recently been installed at Manchester Airport and NASA Space Centre in Houston, Texas.

The Flowstone team also applied Flowcrete’s Peran WW to 150sqm of walls within the swimming pool and changing rooms, in a custom colour blend of white with a tint of blue. Peran WW is a hygienic; vapour permeable wall coating suitable for use in food process areas, kitchens, light industrial areas, storerooms and garages. Peran WW is a popular wall coating for a range of different industries, having recently been installed at Asda, GlaxoSmithKline and Convatec.

The project was completed on time and to budget and Flowstone have been appointed to carry out further resin floor finishes to the Junior School extension at The King’s School.
