Case Study: Refurbishment of Sunderland Train Station with Tremco CPG UKFlowcrete & Tremco Brands.

The Project:

Flowcrete and Tremco's quality systems and product range played a pivotal role in the refurbishment of Sunderland Train Station. The project formed part of the £26million investment of the station and regeneration of the city to improve transport links for residents and visitors. The station redevelopment included the additon of a a new mezzanine floor, plus the creation of a new and improved entrance access for passengers. The project also introduced new amenities such as a café and retail spaces, along with upgraded waiting areas and ticket facilities, providing increased capacity and better station experience for travellers.

Refurbishments of train stations are not very common in the North East making the Sunderland Train Station refurbishment a key project. This required a comprehensive flooring solution that would seamlessly integrate the subfloor to the finishing touches, ensuring durability, safety, and aesthetic appeal.

The Solution:

The project embraced the expertise of All Floors and Milestone, both Tremco CPG partners renowned for their committment to quality and excellence. All Floors, having used Tremco products across various previous projects, trusted in the Tremco floor system which included ES100 One Coat Universal Damp Proof Membrane, SX300NA High Performance Latex Underlayment and SF105 Acrylic Adhesive for PVC and Linoleum. Milestone took on Flowcrete‘s system which included Hydraseal – an epoxy resin, liquid applied surface damp proof membranre and SL Renovation – a fibre reinforced underlayment for fast track renovation and Isocrete PQ – a rapid strength gaining screed and repair mortar for other areas of the refurbishment.

The Result:

The partnership approach employed in this project showed in the success outcome of the project. The primary benefit to the client was the application of a total floor zone solution, encompassing everything from the subfloor to the floor finish. The integration of Tremco's CPG UK’s sales and techincal expertise ensured a harmonious blend of products, offering not just a visually appealing space but one that guarantees longevity, ease of maintenance, and safety.
