Premfloor completed several Planet Hollywood terrazzo installations from Moscow to London. This example was taken from Gatwick Airport (South Terminal) and featured brass lettering & logo with red, blue and back as the terrazzo fill colours. The restaurant was opened by celebrites and completed on time and within budget.

Mix of Day & Night Work
The existing screed was showing signs of wear & tear. As with most fitouts, skyjacks, equipment and heavy wheeled vehicles cause damage at joints. We prepared the floor with dust free angle grinding using a diamond cupstone. This removes most contaminents and dirt, with an element of flattening.
We transported the pre-fabricated letters and stars down the airport halls, past a Clarke's shoe shop. The materials yard was a walk away from the work site, members of the public took an interest in our operatives walking with the lettering.
Once positioned in the correct place, we installed brass strips in concentric ovals around the brass lettering and stars. Once done, the brass is fastened to the floor, and the subfloor primed with an epoxy primer.
We use three phase equipment with dust extration to grind down the red, blue and metalwork using coarse diamond grinding equipment. Following a complete and thorough grind, the floor is grouted to fill any pinholes caused by grinding exposing air in the original mix.
We hand polish the brass stars and lettering and strips to ensure a high shine, as lower grit discs can often leave scratches. Once this is done we carefully work around the edge and along interfaces to other floors. Following this, the floor is sealed.
The floor was finally buffed and cleaned around 7AM on handover day. Customers were keen to visit the restaurant in the busy south terminal, with people entering the second it opened.
