- Acoustic sealing between rooms

We managed a careful site set up to protect the polished concrete flooring with layers of Correx sheets, to allow us better site ingress and egress through the main reception doors. Extra protection had to be put in place to protect the glass viewing windows which show off the remains of St Augustine’s Abbey precinct wall within the main reception flooring area which was discovered during the preliminary site investigations when the building was first proposed.
All works completed on time and to budget.
