We provide specification and design advice to enable our clients to select the most appropriate, functional and aesthetically pleasing installation to suit their particular needs.
We have direct accounts with all of the UK’s major manufacturers/suppliers and are frequently recommended by many of them. We are thus able to offer a cost-effective choice of the most appropriate and up-to-date products available in the market place, whatever the type of building or industry sector.
We carry out works across all aspects of the supply chain – from floor removal, sub-floor & surface preparation, installation and support with any maintenance issues.
We have extensive experience working in schools, colleges and universities. This work ranges from small refurbishment projects direct for the schools themselves, through to major new builds for main contractors.
Our works in this sector have included libraries, laboratories, schools and student accommodation, working closely with Bouygues UK, Kier and other large main contractors across Essex, London and Hertfordshire. Typical package values in this sector have ranged from £5k to £2.1m.
Installations in this sector range from sports centres, gyms, dance studios and golf courses. Projects completed include all the floor finishings for the newly refurbished Alexandra Palace Ice Skating Rink (Lengard) which consisted of heavy-duty 9mm rubber tiles.
A similar installation was carried out at the new Romford Sports Centre (Willmott Dixon). We have installed many sports floors in schools, colleges and universities, the most recent project being SEEVIC College, Benfleet where approximately 700m² of multi-use sports vinyl was installed, complete with all court markings, valued at approximately £60k.
We have worked on various hotel projects over the years, including the Premier Inn chain (for Barnes & RG Carter), Travelodge (Barnes), The Tune Hotel in Canary Wharf (Tolent), Twickenham Stadium Hotel (Cornhill) and London Southend Airport (Willmott Dixon)
Our experience is extensive in this sector, working on many large hospital projects over the years, including but not limited to King George Hospital in Redbridge (Taylor Wimpey), Whipps Cross Hospital Waltham Forest (Waites), Queen Elizabeth Hospital Woolwich (Kværner), Whittington Hospital Archway (Jarvis), QEQM Hospital Westminster (Kier) and most recently UCLH Proton Beam Therapy (Bouygues).
We also have experience of smaller primary healthcare work in doctors’ surgeries, group practices, residential care homes and various private care institutes and hospitals.
Typical package values in this sector range from £50k to £500k, but in the case of UCLH our package exceeded £1.7m.
We have worked on a number of projects across the Public Sector including Barking Town Hall (Barnes) which involved fitting carpet tiles, LVT and vinyls; Langtons Registry Office which involved fitting broadloom carpets; and Romford Town Hall which was a refurbishment project.
We have also completed works for the London Borough of Havering such as the flooring packages in Hornchurch Library and Romford Library. Some other examples of work we have completed in the public sector include North Kent Police Station (Taska), Barking Library (Ardmore) and various projects for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
Numerous new-build residential projects have been completed for Countryside over the last 25 years, and more recently various residential projects for Taylor Wimpey.
We have worked on similar schemes with many other contractors and house builders. Package values vary greatly; some of these projects have been low rise valued at around £20k, whereas others have been complex high-rise developments in excess of £500k.
For many years we have installed carpets, LVTs and vinyls in large department stores and have worked within various shopping centres including Bluewater and Lakeside.
Additionally, we have worked at Footlocker, Watches of Switzerland in Oxford Street, and more recently have carried out installations across various Pets at Home stores.
Over the years we have worked both ‘landside’ and ‘airside’ at various airports including Heathrow, Gatwick, Farnborough and Luton.
Office refurbishment has been a speciality of J Fitch Flooring Ltd. over many years. Working across London and the home counties, we provide both a practical and durable solution for our clients who require a heavy-duty product for their working environment.
