Recent Projects

We have recently completed the new Co-op Headquarters in central Manchester for Bam Construction, which is the cornerstone project for the future schemes within the newly established Angel Square development.  We have recently began works at Manchester Town Hall for Laing O'Rourke which encompasses the refurbishment of the existing council offices, along with a number of New Build projects in and around the existing Town Hall complex.  The specification on both of these schemes has been varied and we are installing a mixture of carpet tiles, bespoke broadloom carpet and bespoke lino/vinyl.  We are also busy in the North East where we are working on Newcastle 6th Form College for Bam and works are due to be completed in March 2013.  In the Midlands, we are approximately half way through a 12 month project to install soft flooring at the new Aston Student Halls of Residencies for Bam Construction, which involves the supply and installation of carpets, vinyls and linoleum to circa 25,000m² of flooring based on phased handovers. 

In addition to the above prestigious projects there are many other projects that we are currently undertaking around the UK where our clients are trusting us with some of the most prestigious projects currently being undertaken.
