Nationwide Concrete Flooring has designed and installed a fully suspended steel fibre reinforced concrete flooring floor slab on behalf of Decathlon in Warrington, Cheshire. Decathlon, one of the largest sports retailers in the world required a concrete floor slab capable of withstanding the specific loading criteria along with an attractive aesthetic surface finish. Nationwide Concrete Flooring entered into early discussions with the client and main contractor Aventura in order to agree the best solution, which turned out to be a reinforced concrete flooring floor slab.
Nationwide Concrete Flooring applied a permaban dry-shake coloured topping to the surface of the concrete during the concrete finishing process. The coloured topping not only enhances the abrasion resistance of the concrete floor but also helps to reflect the light and improves the overall aesthetics of the building.
