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.
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.
- 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.
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!
