Mapei preparation and fixing products have been used to complete a surface installation at Nottingham Trent University’s Health & Allied Professions Centre.
The project, which was completed by Sheffield-based tiling contractor, W F Fearn, for Henry Brothers Midlands, included installation of porcelain wall and floor tiles throughout the centre’s atrium and wash rooms. A gateway to the Clifton Campus, the new cutting-edge centre serves as the base for the university’s Institute of Health & Allied Professions. The property, construction and infrastructure consultancy Pick Everard provided architecture, interior design and principal design services from concept to completion. With flexibility of use in mind, multi-use spaces have the potential to provide fully immersive experiences, for students studying Adult and Mental Health Nursing, Paramedic Science and Public Health. The recent works carried out by W F Fearn spanned a total floor area of 1600 sqm. Prior to installation of the new tile finishes, the atrium floors were primed with low VOC resin primer - Primer G, before being smoothed with Mapei’s fibre-reinforced smoothing compound, Ultraplan Renovation Screed 3240. Mapetex anti-fracture membrane was then installed with Keraquick S1, – a quick-setting, very low VOC deformable cementitious adhesive - and Latex Plus admixture for increased flexibility to S2 classification. Tiles were installed with Keraflex Maxi S1 deformable standard setting cementitious adhesive.
