DCS Flooring Complete their second Tower Block
Working with the main contractor Oliveti Construction, we are close to completing a contract with Leicester City Council revamping 2 of 4 tower blocks on St. Peters Estate next to Leicester City Centre.
The picture above shows the 4 towers towering above St.Peters and Highfields Estates.
We completed Gordon House in early 2017 and completed Maxfield House (December 2018).
Maxfield House and Gordon House are both 17 storey tower blocks which consists of 5 flats on each floor.
These are full revamps with all of the tenants being re-housed.
Our project is to replace all flooring in the flats and communal areas on every floor.
This project has secured 2 years work for 1 man at DCS Flooring and is a real land mark for us to win such a project as the competition in the tender phase was so fierce.
The link below shows this project picked up by the local news paper ‘Leicester Mercury’.
Tower 1 – Gordon House
Oliveti Construction started on this project in late August 2016, with us starting in Mid October 2016 where we had to latex the plant room on the Ground floor.
We started latexing the flats in early November 2016.
We have a good working relationship with all trades on site and the site management as we have just completed a 2 year project at Boulter Crescent. As this site finished we all moved down to Gordon House together.
Polyflor Flooring throughout each Flat
Each flat this is approximately 50m2 is to have new Polyflex tiles throughout apart from the bathrooms that will be in Polysafe Hydro.
Polyflex is an economical, general-purpose vinyl tile combining excellent performance with durability, ease of maintenance and endless design posibilities. These tiles are always a popular choice with council housing not just in Leicester but throughout the U.K.
Polysafe Hydro is a safety vinyl flooring range combining the assurance of sustainable slip resistance with high durability for years of performance in continually wet, barefoot & shod areas. This is a perfect choice of flooring for the council as it will be capped and coved 100mm up the wall, this means that traditional wooden skirting isn’t needed, so the risk of the skirting boards rotting with time due to water is avoided.
Tower 2 – Maxfield House 2018
Following the success of Gordon House, we won the contract to work on Maxfield House.
