This fit-out project for GKN Automotive’s International Headquarters based on the 2nd floor of London Victoria’s Nova North redevelopment is a fantastic example of how the various project stakeholders have collaborated to create a sustainable space without sacrificing design.

One of the key drivers for the project was achieving a SKA silver rating on all installed products.

SKA-rating-logo-RICSLed by RICSSKA ratings are an environmental assessment method used to rate commercial fit-out projects against a set of sustainability good practice criteria.

The recommendations include reducing the amount of floor finishes sent to landfill by re-using or recycling coverings and raised access flooring wherever possible.

This led to adhesive-free installation for all flooring being specified by both the building owner Landsec and design consultants Thirdway.

The Solution

Specialists in commercial flooring installation, Delta Commercial Flooring won the contract to install flooring onto the raised metal access flooring across the office area.

A mixture of floor covering types was specified, and so for ease and speed of installation, Delta needed an adhesive-free installation method that was compatible with them all.
