IFT Appointed On Kelvin Hall Redevelopment

IFT Appointed On Kelvin Hall Redevelopment

As part of a major revamp, IFT were appointed to work on the Kelvin Hall refurbishment project which sees the historic and much loved Glasgow venue transformed into an exciting new centre of cultural excellence providing access to collections, temporary displays, teaching and research, alongside a state-of-the-art health and fitness centre.

IFT were engaged by McLaughlin & Harvey to install both the screeding and resin flooring to the first phase of the refurbishment of the Kelvin Hall.

The high spec flooring project involved 9,500sqm of Sand cement screed and 1,500sqm of Isocrete HD K-Screed (a licensee only product). In addition we installed 1,750sqm of Isocrete Self Level Screed.

We also installed 1,600sqm of Mondeco Mirrazo over three floors and the reception area (which incorporated three flights of stairs inclusive of treads/risers). Mondeco Mirrazzo is a seamless resin terrazzo floor finish that utilises a blend of recycled, crushed, clear, coloured and mirror glass & metallic particles. The resin element included 65m of Mondeo coving to a height of 400mm to the ground floor main corridor. The Mondeco Mirrazo was then applied to the feature wall in the reception area to a height of 2.200m.

IFT involvement in this project started July 2015 and finished July 2016 with on overall project value of £600,000.

Greg Love, MD of IFT, said:
“The application, grinding and polishing of Mondeco Mirrazzo is an extremely skilled process and the finish produced is a clear example of the craftsmanship provided by IFT. Especially given the application of what is essentially a flooring product to a 2.2m height feature wall.”

IFT are delighted to have played a significant part in the refurbishment of this iconic building which opened its doors to the public in August 2016.
