The project had a deadline of 2 weeks; this included co-ordinating the tiling works with the other on-going tradesman’s works. Once a programme of works was developed, our expert tiling team was ready for their site induction & commencing of works.


The completed exhibition included the installation of over 7,000 Johnson white ceramic floor tiles which were laid to span the length of the Duveen galleries & to serve as a casing for the large erected box-like structures. This was a unique project to be involved in & it incorporated various moving parts, however through our experienced & dedicated team we were able to deliver a seamless finish within the initially established time-frame.
