London Stansted Airport is London's third-busiest airport, currently serving around 18 million passengers a year. Many leading low-cost scheduled airlines have made Stansted their base.
Galliford Try Plc had some challenging criteria to meet when refurbishing the Satellite 1 Departure Lounge at Stansted Airport. Wall paneling that was marked and damaged needed a new look and work had to be carried out during a very short shut-down period at night.
AquaGrip was the ideal solution that providing the following benefits:
Direct adhesion (no primer needed so dramatically reduced application time)
Low odour and low VOC ensured there were no complaints during application
Fast drying to enable a rapid return to service of the area
A tough robust finish to withstand the demands of a busy airport environment
This solution eliminated the costly option of replacing the wall panels which would have resulted in lengthy disruptions to the airport operations. AquaGrip’s user friendly properties and low impact on the environment ensured this was a win-win solution for contractor and client alike.
Crowne Plaza Hotel
Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts is a dynamic hotel brand with more than 370 hotels in nearly 60 countries around the world.
When Murray & Willis were recently awarded the multi-million pound refurbishment of the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Leeds they were faced with a daunting programme. The contract included one hundred and thirty-five bedrooms as well as seventeen suites and public areas and the contract was to be completed in eighteen weeks whilst the hotel was still open to the public.
AquaGrip was the ideal answer to these requirements because:
It is virtually odour free and fast drying so it can be used in high occupancy areas without restrictions
It has a very smooth and even finish that is ultra tough to withstand the high levels of wear in a busy environment
There is normally no need for a primer saving material costs and application time
The low VOC content ensures minimal impact to the environment
AquaGrip has antibacterial properties that are ideal for hygiene areas and it is also now Class 0 Fire rated. Available in almost any colour and 3 different gloss levels, it is the solution for 1000’s of applications.
