Commercial Case Studies

There’s nothing we love more than a happy customer with a big smile on their face. So we have collected a few of our favourite stories.

Concorde Project

Manchester Airport is home to the legendary Concorde G-BOAC which is still the world’s fastest ever supersonic passenger jet despite retiring to it’s hangar in November of 2003. The swanky hangar is also home to 1,800m² worth of Nouveau Connections carpet tiles after dctuk were handpicked by very important people at the airport to provide the perfect flooring solution to sit beneath this iconic airliner.

A project with such esteem was never going to be anything less than extraordinary so we set about finding a carpet tile that would deliver outstanding longevity and sheer excellence when it came to performance. Curators of the expansive space were on the hunt for something affordable and durable that could stand up to heavy footfall and intensive use. Nouveau Connections was an obvious choice and The Concorde Project had landed in the right destination.
Since adding the high-flying Nouveau Connections range to our collection of exclusive carpet tiles, it has fast become a go-to solution for highstreet stores, film studios, exhibitions spaces and museums, just to name a few. A tuft pile construction adds a little luxury while tough polypropylene yarns stand strong against the never-ending procession of visitors dropping by to marvel at G-BOAC, attend extravagant gala dinners and check out a whole host of events and exhibitions.

Princes Dock, Liverpool

As you know, at the beginning of this year, we moved into a brand new HQ in Liverpool’s legendary Cotton Exchange building so when Eddarbridge Land Developments director, Sean, approached us looking for the perfect flooring solution for a brand new project in the city’s famous Princes Dock, we practically bit his hand off. Don’t worry, Sean’s hand is still in tact (promise) but we were super excited to be working on something so close to home.

This particular project was all part of a big refurbishment of a large, high rise office block in Liverpool city centre so we needed to come up with something strong, durable and long-lasting. We were working with a striking design so needed a range that would deliver style and substance in equal measures so honed in on Burmatex Lateral. This tough polypropylene and nylon range is suitable for use with castor chairs and boasts antistatic properties, as well as a choice of 18 diverse colourways - bingo!
As well as supplying Eddarbridge with top quality carpet tiles at the best possible price point, the team also enlisted our help when it came down to the installation process. We were given a shipshape subfloor as a blank canvas to work with so we simply sent in one of our expert fitters who laid the tiles and completed the job within two days and I think it’s safe to say we delivered the goods:

"DCT recently carpeted an office which underwent a total refurbishment carried out by my contract company. They proved to be exceptional. The product was superb and the fitter was fast and highly efficient. I would recommend them to anyone." - Sean Doran, Director

Contact Centre, Letchworth

This installation was completed by RJB Builders for the North Herts Contact centre in Letchworth. The first phase of the project was to convert four separate offices into a new open plan space. This meant that a hardwearing tile fit for use with high levels of traffic was required and Rob told us that he had used Burmatex carpet tiles before so we recommended the Burmartex Tivoli range.

What you’re seeing here is a unique and creative installation using 3 different colours from the diverse range - Key West Blue, St Lucia Night and Bermuda Lime. (Clashing colours are all the rage this season, didn’t you know?) The first two were installed adjacently using the chequerboard method to create depth, dimension and a variety of shade.
This is a great way to break up anonymity in a vast expanse of space such as contact centres like this one and other large commercial interiors. The strip of green around the edge of the room is the perfect way to demonstrate direction and add a touch of attitude without having to disrupt the area with railings, pillars of barriers. Good work, Rob and co!

Oliver Bonas makeover

Finding the floor that is just right when there's a specific brief in the back of your mind can be a tough one but Ash from Oliver Bonas had it covered when she came to DCTUK in search of a carpet covering for The Training Room project that has recently reached completion. I always love getting to know our customers more and learning about their latest projects so it was great to hear about the in-house training facility at the Oliver Bonas Support Office in Surrey.

The Support Office training space (above) is now home to a whole heap of our exclusive Nouveau Fantasia tiles in the colour Sterling Silver, which were handpicked by Ash from a selection of samples we previously sent her way. She was looking for something neutral in colour that would match some existing vinyl flooring, as well as provide that all-important 'OB' aesthetic and I think she did a sterling job with Fantasia.
Luxurious in style and substance but modest in price, Fantasia is the perfect choice for those of you who, like Ash, are looking for something affordable without any compromise on sophistication. With 11 versatile colourways to take your pick from, all featuring our a modern update on the classic linear pattern, Nouveau Fantasia gives you the chance to indulge in your imagination but it's not just a pretty tile you know. Excellent performance comes hand-in-hand with its exceptional design credentials to provide a flooring solution that would provide any bustling commercial or public environment with the resilience and longevity it needs.

Mann Island, Liverpool

Mann Island is a landmark cultural centre located in the dockside area of Liverpool. In recent years, it has been given a makeover to become one of Liverpool’s top-notch prime retail and commercial addresses. With this in mind, DCTUK were jumping with excitement to be invited to work with Aztec Interiors on one of the newest buildings in the area – located directly next to the Museum of Liverpool and looking out towards the grand Port of Liverpool building.

The project at Mann Island required an experienced fit team from DCTUK to lay down the contemporary design involving carpet tiles and vinyl that the architects had specified for the floor. The carpet tiles would take some hammering over the course of their life in this busy building, so it was no surprise that we turned to the durable and aesthetically pleasing Desso Essence carpet tile to fit out the meeting rooms and meetings hubs. Over 1000m2 of carpet tiles were required, supplied in four different shades of grey, and laid out in a random block style that resulted in a unique lego-like design.
The walkways and eating areas were fitted out with Polysafe Arena – a heavy duty sheet vinyl with a concrete colour and design which completely suited the industrial look that the building provided. Finally, the project was finished with a selection of furniture pieces from Elite Office Furniture - the UK's leading office furniture supplier for commercial projects, which are available to buy online here at DCTUK.

Brendan Hughes, Contracts Manager at Aztec said "We are delighted with both the product that was supplied by DCTUK and the superior level of fitting provided that was required for this fit-out. The product was delivered on time and despite tight deadlines the fitting team at DCTUK did everything possible to meet the completion date. We look forward to working with DCTUK again on future projects."
