The brand new hotel required decorative flooring for both its reception and dining areas, which would be of particular importance due to their prominence in the building and the fact that a hotel’s reception area is one of the first parts of the building that visitors will see, which means that it needs to create a great first impression on arriving guests.
280m2 of Flowcrete’s premium seamless resin terrazzo flooring system, Mondéco Earth was specified for the project and was completed over a period of two weeks by the resin flooring specialists’ approved contractors.
Flowcrete South Africa worked with the hotel’s architect to develop a colour and style that would tie into the hotel's contemporary cosmopolitan interior design scheme. A bespoke, dark grey colour was developed for the project to create the desired aesthetic. The robust nature of the Mondéco range means that the floor would be able to maintain its visual impact and easy-to-clean finish despite heavy foot traffic, frequent cleaning and exposure to spillages of food and drink.
Before embarking on the installation of Mondéco Earth the substrate had to be brought up to class 1 standard, this was particularly problematic as the edges of the surface were in a poor condition as a consequence of the nosing that had occurred previously.
Flowcrete’s expert contractor partners had to work around other tradesman on site during the installation, which meant that the job was far from straightforward.
Mondéco Earth is a decorative epoxy terrazzo floor finish, made up of durable flint and granite aggregates and is best suited for application in environments where appearance, cleanability and durability are of paramount concern.
