ARDEX are regularly relied upon by the NHS to deliver cost efficient, performance led flooring solutions for their varied locations throughout the UK, whether it be for hospitals, clinics, or laboratories. One such project saw ARDEX team up with flooring contractor, PCS Flooring of Merseyside, to help complete the extensive new build project at the University Hospital Aintree.

The Elective Care Centre will offer four operating theatre suites, two major treatment rooms, a pre-operative assessment unit, pre-discharge ward and an admission department, plus outpatient clinics and substantial radiology facilities – all linked by a bridge corridor to the main hospital.

To commence the 9000m² project, the floor areas received ARDEX DPM 1 C One Coat Surface Damp Proof Membrane. Developed for use as a one coat system, ARDEX DPM 1 C is easy to apply, fast curing and can accommodate Hygrometer readings up to 98% RH.

Following an application of ARDEX P 82 primer to the cured DPM, ARDEX K 11 Levelling and Smoothing Compound was applied to provide a smooth and flat surface for the final floorcovering. ARDEX K 11 is hard enough to walk on only 2½ hours after application, and the final floorcovering can be applied the next day.

On completing the project, Mark Hughes of PCS Flooring said, “When under pressure, no other flooring systems can match the reliability and proven performance of ARDEX. Their products delivered outstanding results for this prestigious project, and provided us with total ‘peace of mind’ from the outset”.
