Ormond College, University of Melbourne




Residential college choose easily maintained
flooring and wall cladding for new bathroom installations



Ormond College is the largest residential college at the University of Melbourne, with over 400 students and 80 permanent and casual staff. The college needed practical, easily maintained flooring and wall cladding for new bathroom installations. They selected Altro Aquarius™ safety flooring to provide a surface that would be slip-resistant in wet and dry, shoe and barefoot environments - perfect for their ensuite refurbishment. For the ensuite walls, they selected Altro Whiterock Chameleon™. Ormond College loved the fact that it is impact resistant and that they no longer needed to worry about repairs to grout, cracks or chips.

They were impressed with the product’s high end look to match their building design whilst providing safe, easy to clean, hygienic and durable surfaces. The bathrooms, being a wet and dry environment, needed flooring that would be safe under both conditions and under bare feet as well as different types of shoes. With a TRRL ≥36 and Class B safety rating, along with Altro’s long warranties, 15 years sustained slip-resistance and reputation, they knew they were in safe hands.

Dennis Stammer, Maintenance Manager at Ormond College said, “I have experienced Altro in the past and not only do they have excellent customer service but high quality, top of the range products as well. The bathrooms that we installed using Altro safety flooring and Altro Whiterock Chameleon wall cladding were reasonably priced and of very high quality. I would only recommend and use Altro Aquarius and Altro Whiterock products.”

ALTRO FLOORING AND WALL CLADDING IS ICING ON THE CAKE

ALTRO FLOORING AND WALL CLADDING IS ICING ON THE CAKE
FOR UNIQUE WEDDING VENUE

A popular wedding venue in Hertfordshire has cited Altro as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of flooring and wall cladding and selected a range of the company’s products for a kitchen rebuild following a fire at the end of 2013.

The Priory Barn, situated in Little Wymondley near Hitchin, is established as one of the UK’s top wedding venues and offers a very special atmosphere in unique rural surrounds. It was built in 1541 by James Needham, the King’s carpenter, and local oak cut down in the winter of 1540 was used in its construction.

Catering for weddings takes place in an 18m x 5m purpose-built kitchen alongside the Priory Barn. This timber frame structure was gutted by fire at the end of 2013, which meant a complete rebuild and a new kitchen refit was needed.

Priory Barn owner John Hope explains: “I was adamant that the flooring and wall cladding had to be Altro. In my view they are the Rolls Royce of finishings and their reputation for excellence is second to none. We strive to provide the best for our customers, so I wanted to source the best products for the new kitchen.”

John made contact with local Altro Whiterock Premier Installer Genie Interiors and, with its Managing Director John McCarthy, he made a trip to Letchworth to visit Altro. “Altro showed us a range of flooring and wall cladding and we assessed which ones would be suitable for our needs,” said John Hope. “The products had to be tough, practical, easy to maintain and look good as well.”


“After looking at several alternatives, and discussing the options with Genie Interiors, we selected Altro WhiterockTM wall cladding and 2.5mm Altro™ safety flooring. I was very impressed with what Altro had to offer and with the breadth of their products, applications and ongoing research. Their reputation is very well deserved.”

Altro Whiterock is a cost-effective sheet extruded from a high quality, food safe PVCu polymer for operating temperatures up to 60o. It is easy to clean, impact resistant and grout-free. It meets current EU Directives on health and hygiene.

Altro 2.5mm hard-wearing safety flooring is easy to lay, and can be hot welded to produce an unobtrusive and impervious floor, minimising the ingress of dirt and helping to maintain hygiene standards. It also boasts long-term durability and excellent slip resistance, which are ideal for medium to heavy-duty environments.

The new Altro flooring and wall cladding were installed at the Priory Barn by Genie Interiors, who also carried out the total refit of the new kitchen. MD John McCarthy said: “The key to this project was planning. Turnaround had to be fast because there were weddings booked that needed to be catered for. Genie Interiors is very experienced at working closely with contractors, builders and caterers, so we put together a tight delivery programme which worked very well.

“We are also very accustomed to working with Altro products and we won’t install anything else because we believe they are the best. Altro Whiterock is proven to be the best on the market for durability, ease of cleaning and aesthetics. It’s an all-round winner. Altro 2.5mm safety flooring is ideal for this application because it’s designed for functional kitchens and is cost-effective.

“The team put up 85m2 of Altro Whiterock and laid 100m2 of Altro safety flooring. Overall the project went very smoothly, and we worked closely with Altro to deliver the best results. The existing floor was slab only, so at one stage we brought in Altro’s technical team to discuss how best to prepare the base before laying the flooring. We applied a coat of Latex, a dpm, then another coat of Latex. That’s the good thing about Altro, the support is always excellent.”

John Hope now has a fully operational new kitchen, just in time for peak wedding season – and he couldn’t be happier. “I am delighted, and very relieved, that the project is now finished. The fire could have caused us much worse problems, but thanks to Genie Interiors and the other contractors working so well together, it was completed in just 15 weeks.

“The workmanship of the flooring and wall cladding installation is superb. It looks very smart indeed; the colours, the finish – absolutely spot on. I have also had some very positive feedback from the cleaning team who have reported it is very easy to maintain. I wouldn’t hesitate in using Altro again – it pays to invest in the best for long-term peace of mind.”
