Work on the brand new £10.8m Pencoed Primary School has now been completed and with 600 children presently on the roll in one single site it’s their aim is to deliver an environment suitable for all needs.
When the school needed flooring for this massive new build project they turned to international flooring specialists Gerflor to deliver a fantastic selection of fit for purpose, future- proof solutions. The installation would fall into the capable hands of Floor Furnishings based in Cardiff.
The range of specified Gerflor products would be extremely varied and include their award-winning Taralay Impression Control and Taralay Impression Comfort, their Tarasafe Ultra and Ultra H20 complemented by an amount of Mural Calypso shower wall, together with some 300m2 of Taraflex® Multi Use sports flooring.
