Middlesex Flooring were contracted to carry out a full replacement of office carpet to the Head Office over three floors. Several meetings were held to determine specifics, including the programme, price and any constraints that may affect works. MFL were asked for their experience to help select suitable carpet tiles to fit out the offices in Mill Hill. They were also required to carry out the installation at a convenient time with minimum disruption.

The Requirements
Due to a partial shut-down, it was agreed that works would need to be carried out over the Easter period and the week following, as staffing would be at its lowest during this week. Existing adhered carpets had to be removed together with all loose latex, and subfloors had to be made good prior to installing the new floor tiles. All office furniture would need to be moved and replaced during this time, and MFL were to ensure that minimal disruption to working practice was experienced. All possible materials would need to be available as no additional materials could be ordered due to the bank holiday.

Middlesex Flooring – providing the solution
MFL took an extremely pro-active approach to the project and came up with numerous methods of overcoming potential issues, including the use of hydraulic jacks for office furniture.

MFL proposed getting the works completed early over the Bank holiday weekend while the office was completely unoccupied. Despite 70% of their regular labour having been pre-booked in advance, MFL were able to resource the labour, and ensured that materials were on hand for any eventuality.

MFL’s well trained team, expertly fitted and completed the installation from the 2nd down to the ground floor on the Bank Holiday Monday ready for staff arriving on the Tuesday.

The Result

  • Installation in only 3 days
  • Early completion with zero disruption to office staff returning after the Easter bank holiday weekend.
  • All furniture replaced in correct locations
  • Completed on budget to a very high specification


CJ O’ Shea were delighted with the result:

“MFL’s approach to this project was extremely professional. The preparation and organisation was exceptional, and the team employed to carry out the works were well prepared. They were conscientious of the occupied and furnished environment. We were impressed with their commitment and focus to achieve completion prior to staff returning to work”.

The main contractor, Cosmur Construction Ltd briefed us to renew all floor coverings in all communal and circulation areas within the care home.  This included, lounges, corridors, stairways and leisure areas.  Being a nursing home, there was no way that the residents could leave, so the busy premises had to fitted whilst fully occupied.

Prior to commencing works with the Main Contractor (MC) we planned a program of works which best suited the site and conditions.  It was agreed that Middlesex Flooring would latex all the floors through the night when the residents could stay within their flats whilst work was in progress, leaving it dry for foot traffic the following morning.   This left no room for error, so the works were planned to the last detail with the MC and the home.

With the assistance of the MC and our dedicated fitting team, we co-ordinated our works in sections around the home with safety of paramount importance.  The residents were notified with all aspects of our installation in a timely and safe manner with minimal disruption to all parties.

End Result:

A high quality durable floor that will last for years with the minimum of disruption fitted over night. Completed safely, on time and on budget.

The MC said:

We were delighted with the results.  The care home were rightly very concerned about how the work could take place within an occupied building, especially considering the elderly residents.  They wanted to make sure that the fitting was 100% safe and did not cause stress to the residents.  Middlesex Flooring are specialised in fitting flooring to occupied premises and planned the fitting meticulously.  Well done on a great job!

Installation of Altro Flooring and Whiterock cladding at Paediatric A&E, Hillingdon Hospital.

The Children’s A&E ward at Hillingdon Hospital was in need of refurbishment and Middlesex Flooring was chosen to install all the flooring and wall cladding throughout the contract. We worked closely with the builders to achieve the handover date and programme deadline.

The materials used were from the Altro Wood Safety Flooring range, Aquarius and Suprema, plus Whiterock Satins and Chameleon Digiclad wall cladding. Digiclad is manufactured to each customer’s bespoke design.

These products were selected to meet high safety standards and hygiene requirements.

Colours were carefully selected to be light & bright with a wood effect oak with a light grey border to the corridor floor areas running into the wards.

The results can be seen in the photographs below:

The project involved mechanically removing all the old latex residues, back to a sound base, ready for applying self leveling compounds, manufactured by F Ball & Co. Our work was carried out out-of-hours to enable the builders to continue with their work.

A photograph of this project is on the 02/2017 sample card for Altro Wood Safety Flooring collection.

It was a challenging project due to time constraints but our Contracts Director, Trevor Clarke, worked closely with the main building contractor, Jarvis Group and the finished installation was of the highest calibre.

The Client

CB Hounslow FC, Hounslow, Middlesex.

Middlesex Flooring was approached by an acquaintance, Frank James, who is chairman of CB Hounslow United FC to assist in whatever we can do to help get his project of new clubhouse and facilities completed as they have literally no money left. CB Hounslow United FC is a non-profit organisation which mentors and coaches all children from 5 upwards in a deprived area to try to keep them off the streets. I was very impressed after my meeting with Frank at the football club and the amount of work and his own money from his company that he has ploughed into this project to get it up and running.

Contributors to date are as follows: – Football Foundation, Lord Mayor, London Marathon, Hounslow Council, Sport England, DNata, BJMW (Frank’s company), Club itself fundraising.

Costs have spiralled since the project started in 2001 and is so near the finish line now.

The club has also received an Outstanding Community Award and are the biggest charitable FC in Middlesex.

As a company, we liked what Frank had done himself to get the project this far and after hearing the story, wanted to help out where we could. I approached various contacts with manufacturers that I know within the trade to see if there was anyway that they could do to help with their plight.

Middlesex Flooring – providing the solution
After several calls and lengthy conversations relaying the story, our contacts too became very involved: Desso kindly donated carpet tiles for the function room, foyer, office and staircase, Gradus Accessories donated aluminium nosings for the staircase, F Ball & Co donated all the adhesives and latex screed required and Tarkett supplied the dance floor for a nominal fee. We in turn provided all labour to install the coverings required FOC.

The Result

  • Installation to fit in with clients requirements.
  • Client delighted with outcome and had their Christmas party in the reception room.


CB Hounslow FC were delighted with the result:

“If it wasn’t for Craig and his associates we wouldn’t have been able to open the upstairs and more than likely not open until August/September 2018. The upstairs is integral to the running of the business to allow the club to raise its own revenue. The work that has been done is to such a high standard, we almost don’t want to use it”.
