Flooring for a brand-new laboratory testing facility

Share this project:

A brand new, state of the art medical testing facility was being built in Manchester. John Lord was chosen to install high-performance flooring for the facility, working to an extremely tight timescale.


The site will process and provide results for medical tests for employees of a major global corporation and is currently one of only two in the world.

The flooring system throughout the facility needed to be hygienic, hard-wearing, and installed quickly. To complete the project, John Lord installed a total of 1800m2 of high-performance Altro vinyl flooring systems throughout the new laboratory facilities with site formed vinyl skirting and 300m2 of Interface carpet tiles in the meeting rooms.

An early access certificate was granted to the client enabling them to start commissioning the site for operations. Accelerated working by the John Lord team, working around the clock, allowed the team to complete the project in record time and hand the project over, snag-free on day 12.

John Edwards, Commercial Manager for John Lord Soft Flooring Division said ‘This was a fantastic project to work on. The team really showed what they could do when faced with what seemed like an impossible deadline, and the client was extremely pleased with the result. We used Altro Walkway throughout the laboratory facilities as it is an extremely hard-wearing, easy to clean product which meets the client’s operational needs.”

“The result is a high-spec, hygienic and hardwearing flooring system, that offers a safe and clean environment – perfect for a laboratory testing facility”.
