Historic Foundry Building

University of Kent

Mason UK installed floating floors in The Old Fire Station and Foundry buildings at the Historic Chatham Dockyards. The floating floors were required for new studios by the University of Kent.

Working in old listed buildings presented its own problems. None of the existing walls were plumb so care had to be taken to set the floors out correctly. The floating floor design had to cope with high edge loads, up to 13.5kN/m, as the acoustic design required dense block walls to be built off the floor edges.

Mason UK Ltd was one of the first sub contractors on site to install the floating floors. We are also due to supply acoustic hangers and other floor mounts on this project to other fit out sub contractors.
