Covid 19 Update Read More

We are open for business as usual (although there here is nothing usual about this situation) with our transport company (Brooks Transport) who are designated by the government as critical to the covid response. We are still delivering direct to door or site, (however collections or visits to the warehouse are not possible.) Our IT systems allow us to work from home so our staff are protected. Please Call or Email Us for samples or orders. Our factories are back to full capacity and the supply chain is operating effectively which can be seen here. As a trade supplier we have a minimum requirement of 50m2 for any samples and supplies. Please call 01666 504015 if you require less. For Government advice please click here. Even with these steps we have made, we must pull together, support one another, and get through this as a group, a family, and feel proud to say to our wider community we are critical to the Covid-19 response, and we will support it for as long as we are able. Stay safe, stay well, look after yourself, and each other.

Rathbone Square Project Oxford Street 2017

  • Project - Rathbone Square Project
  • Client - Great Portland Estates
  • Executive Architects - Make
  • Main Contractor - Lend Lease
  • Fit Out Sub-Contractor - Brown and Carroll
  • Wood Flooring Supplier - The Solid Wood Flooring Company

We worked closely with Brown and Carroll, The Architects Make and Lend Lease the main contractor to create a competitively priced high-quality floor for the above development. There are two palette colours a “Latte” light board (Code TW-E715 and TW-E718) and an “Expresso” dark board (code TW-E716 and TW-E720). These were prime oak and were fumed and then finished with a colour oil for easy maintenance and repair to create a uniform natural wood floor. 

We are supplying a 190mm wide board and a 260mm wide board in a very select clean grade 20mm thick engineered flooring. We used our specialist knowledge in the area of fuming to alter the tannins in the Oak top layer to create a unique brushed finish.

Rathbone Square project on Oxford Street

We completed a site visit and the senior commercial manager from Brown and Carroll went to the factory during production to carry out due diligence.

Our professional approach and expertise in engineered wood floors was appreciated by all concerned and we are very proud to be part of this unique development in the centre of London, just off Oxford street.

The stories of Fitzrovia’s alleyways wind their way deep through London’s past. With many now in conservation areas, they are sure to be part of its heritage for a long time to come.

We are privileged to have the opportunity to shape this exciting area, adding to its heritage.

We are proud to bring you Rathbone Square, 142 apartments, every one of which will be an incredibly special place to call home right in the heart of London.
