Itec Contract Floors has provided over 1,000m2 of commercial vinyl flooring for Heartlands Education Centre Ltd, a crucial facility and the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust’s largest hospital site.

The heart of a bustling, dynamic community of staff, this vast site consists of modern, state-of-the-art buildings that are purpose-built to provide the highest quality patient care and support, as well as a pleasant environment for all guests to visit. This means that any surfaces, including selected floor coverings, are to be of the highest standard, Itec helping to tick all relevant boxes as part of recent renovation work carried out.

Hallways and classrooms – key areas within the doctor and nurse training school – were treated to Itec Concept Woods decorative vinyl in the rich oak hue of Santiago 749, installation carried out by Newlays Floors, Birmingham. The Concept Woods stable has proved popular in various healthcare locations thanks to its far-reaching talents, Birmingham Heartlands now receiving a similar service thanks to the collection’s stand-out credentials that include a Class 34 Very Heavy Commercial rating.

These floors provide an exceptional level of durability, a large factor in keeping future expenditure capped. Where a sub-standard flooring option might require re-laying when faced with significant levels of footfall and wheeled traffic, Itec floors come ready-equipped to deal with any challenge thrown their way.

Underfoot choice was also to hold easy-clean qualities, with a high percentage of the flooring laid in canteen and entrance areas where dirt and debris can become problematic. Over the coming months and years, the Hyperguard+ PUR surface of Concept Woods will not only help maintain its stunning looks, but will also save on the precious commodity of staff hours.

David Twist, Director of Heartlands Education Centre Limited, tells us why Concept Woods made the grade:

“Replacing the floors at Birmingham Heartlands has been an extensive two-year project, but we are delighted with the part Itec Concept Woods has played. The flooring provides durability and simple maintenance, as well as a realistic oak look that enhances the ambiance of our key locations. Caring for Concept Woods saves both time and money when compared to the old, worn carpet that previously occupied the spaces, and it’s testament to Itec that the floors down for two years look as new as those most recently laid.”
