Full refurbishment to the white terrazzo tiles in Terminal 2 at Manchester Airport, along with baggage hall and other areas. Work was continuous, (although on certain public holidays we could not work), and all done on nights. Every single joint was cut around and re-grouted, (this involved approximately 130,000 joints!) Existing equipment available for this work, at the time, involved kneeling down and hand-cutting of the joints. Our workshop engineers manufactured accurate mini floor-saws enabling us to cut out jojnts 5 times faster than using traditional machines. The entire floor was subsequently diamond polished and sealed. The program initially proposed was beaten by several weeks.
Cut & Fill Joints
Grind & Polish
12,000 m2 - two halls
84,000 linear metres of joints
Excessive foot traffic had eroded the top 2-3mm of the existing cement joints. It was decided that the reinstatement depth of 10mm would be adequate, and a colour matched resin infill material was selected. The programme was based around continuous working except bank holidays and busy school holidays.
Joints were cut to a depth of 10mm in both directions, including along expansion joints. They were filled in with a colour-matched fast setting resin and left 2mm proud. The speed of set of resin enabled us to grind off the excess grout almost immediately, leaving the joints perfectly level with the surrounding floor.
We used a combination of machines for the grout removal and diamond polishing. All the work was done dry with full dust extraction, followed up by a full clean, buff and seal of the areas ready for client handover.
