Wixams Retirement Village project a finalist in the CFJ/CFA awards 2021

Wixams Retirement Village project a finalist in the CFJ/CFA awards 2021

We are delighted to announce that our project at Wixams Retirement Village has been chosen as a finalist in the CFJ/CFA Awards 2021, ‘Flooring in residential developments & social housing’ category.

As part of the construction of Wixams Retirement Village, a new care community in Bedfordshire, we supplied a host of subfloor preparation and adhesive products to Unite Flooring for the installation of luxury vinyl tiles and carpeting throughout the apartments and communal areas.

Our work on the project included advising Unite Flooring on a number of solutions and products to overcome high moisture levels in the subfloor. This led Ben Hinchliffe, Operations Director at Unite Flooring, to comment:

“The Bostik team were great to work with. They had no problem with visiting the site soon after we got in touch, and were not fazed for a moment by the high moisture levels in the village centre. Their advice about using the underfloor heating was really helpful and without it, we could have run into problems.

“Bostik are true professionals. They come at short notice whenever needed, and it feels great to be in the hands of experienced experts who know exactly what they are doing – because they’ve done it before. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again.”

The winners of the CFJ/CFA Awards 2021 will be announced at a ceremony on Friday 3rd September, 2021.
