Flooring: Chateau Prime Grade Engineered Oak in White Colour

This A-listed building, built in 1816, has recently undergone a massive £2.5 million redevelopment under the banner of “Investing in Faith”.

The reconfiguration of the building has taken place during two phases of refurbishment under a Church appointed project team that includes Thomson Bethune (project co-ordinators), Page\Park (architects) and Robertson (construction). This has provided the church with a greater degree of access, flexibility in use for all areas, both meeting and worship halls, and a new café, including a conservatory style seating area overlooking the serene and beautiful rear gardens.

Focus on Detail

Despite the historic exterior, a more modern appearance has been bestowed upon the interior.  To complement the introduction of coated steel and glass details that now intersperse the spacious, light and airy rooms, the architects placed a wide, engineered, pre-finished oak floor from Russwood throughout the church.  The Chateau White Prime oak floorboards give a clean finish that underpins the deceptive simplicity of the Georgian style interior.  Finishing touches such as shadow gaps at ceiling and floor, boards placed at a horizontal angle butting up against the neighbouring slate of the conservatory and the use of slightly narrower boards overhead on the conservatory ceiling are testament to the fine design and detailing inherent throughout the project.

Technical Advice

Andrew Taylor, architect for Page\Park, commented: “We found Russwood’s technical knowledge and willingness to provide advice on detailing and fixing, product suitability and specification to be a huge help in this project.  Our clients were keen on using a Scottish supplier, and found the flooring samples to be a real asset when it came to choosing their perfect floor.  They are delighted with how it looks now.”
