Altro Breaking New Ground with North Hertfordshire College Campus Refurb

Altro resin flooring is set to break new ground on the North Hertfordshire College refurbishment.

The company will provide the ultimate in colour, durability and flexibility on the award winning, £10 million refurbished campus at the college in Hitchin.

Altro MultiScreed and Altro Flexiflor EP Naturals have been used within the multi-functional hub space on the new campus, which links three teaching sites.

The award winning design for the new campus was created by international design practice Scott Brownrigg.

Associate Clark Barton explained how Altro resins played a part in his vision: “The new campus is open plan, bright, colourful, modern yet functional, and it was vital that the flooring should reflect and complement this.

“We specified Altro resins for the college hub because these products offer the range of colours and textures to enable us to be innovative and flexible in our design. In addition, it was imperative that the flooring was high performance and practical, and Altro’s credentials offer this.

“The entire project was very much a collaborative effort,” added Clark. “We worked closely with Altro, the main contractor, the college, and also the students, who were instrumental in choosing colours and themes.”

Altro Flexiflow has the toughness to handle high impact areas, while also flexible enough to move with a building.

It provides a seamless and uniform finish with uninterrupted lines, and is easy to install thanks to its self-levelling properties.

There are 28 colour options meaning it has the flexibility to fit into any design vision.
On the upper floor of the college hub, Clark and his team chose another resin flooring — Altro MultiScreed EP Naturals, in

White Yorkstone. “This flooring works very well in contrast with the smooth texture of the Altro Flexiflow. It’s also a tough, practical flooring that’s easy to clean.
