Case Study

Motorcycle Dealership

A prestigious South West based motorcycle dealership was seeking to remodel its workshop garage flooring and to bring it up to showroom standards and appearance. This involved a complete refit from floor to ceiling with new workstations implemented throughout the space. 

The client was concerned about floor appearance and functionality i.e. is it fit for purpose and how a suitable product could be installed in the time available. This is where Surface Systems Ltd with their vast knowledge and expertise in the automotive sector, having worked for the likes of Vauxhall, Volvo and BMW, could help. 

Consultation with the client and a detailed appraisal of their needs enabled us to specify a suitable floor that was fit for purpose. The client was happy for us to lay over the existing tiles but we advised against this as movement in these tiles could impact on the integrity of the finished floor. We decided to remove the tiles and existing screed and prepare the concrete surface ready to receive a new epoxy screed. The floor was primed using a moisture tolerant epoxy primer before the epoxy screed was mixed in a Daines Rotary mixer and laid to provide a smooth surface. 

Our team worked closely with the client throughout the installation and at every stage he was invited to view the work in progress. The client was delighted with the finished epoxy surface as it met all of his expectations. The motorcycle dealership now feel proud when clients sometimes have to enter the workshop to discuss the work being carried out on their motorcycles.
