Amtico paves the way at Nottingham health hub


Amtico Signature flooring used throughout The Cotgrave Hub

First impressions count, which led to the specification of Amtico Signature flooring at The Cotgrave Hub, a new multi-purpose facility in Nottingham.

Part of an extensive redevelopment of the local area, the building brings together GP services, a pharmacy, the community voluntary service, a library, and Nottinghamshire Police under one roof.

In order to connect these different amenities, Amtico LVT was used to create zones and aid wayfinding.

Amtico Signature was chosen by chartered architects, West Hart Partnership, to form walkways throughout the entrance and reception area, reflecting the linear design used in the interior lighting, as well as the aesthetic of the building itself.

Different types of flooring products – a mixture of neutral-coloured woods, stones and abstracts – were then used to zone separate areas.

Due to its high specification credentials and its ability to create an eye-catching design, the architects chose ‘Alchemy Atmosphere’ for the reception area.

A walkway made from ‘Cumbrian Slate’ then runs across from the main reception desk into the GP surgery and the library, effectively linking each area together.

“The high-specification flooring allowed us to create something different, while still meeting the needs of the multipurpose building, successfully bringing a wide range of services together,” said Jake Alexander, technical director at West Hart Partnership.

“In particular, the use of Cumbrian Slate resulted in a ‘coal seam’ effect, which was apt, considering Rushcliffe’s mining history, so added a little reference to the area’s heritage as part of the overall design.”
