A selection of Polyflor safety, homogeneous and SD floor coverings, including Forest fx, XL PU, Polysafe Standard, Polysafe Hydro Evolve and Finesse SD, were used throughout the unit by Leeds-based flooring contractors Phoenix Flooring.
This modular building project was completed off site by Portakabin Group, with main contractor Kier Construction, as part of a larger £80 million modernisation and expansion programme at the hospital. The new unit includes eight home-from-birth rooms, an 18-cot neonatal unit with three mother and baby rooms and extra capacity if necessary. A labour ward includes a delivery suite and two obstetrics operating theatres.
Forest fx PUR sheet vinyl flooring in American Oak has been extensively used throughout the wards, corridors and reception areas.
The Forest fx flooring collection also achieves individually certified BRE Global A+ ratings for major use areas which can contribute to BREEAM credits, as can the product’s BES 6001 certification which demonstrates compliance with a recognised responsible sourcing scheme as certified by the BRE. The North Middlesex Hospital maternity unit project has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating.
