Station Square, Colchester
A former Phillips office block Colchester town centre has been transformed into a luxury residential building.
Adjacent to Colchester North train station, Station Square is a 67-unit scheme featuring one and two-bedroom apartments wrapped around an exclusive central courtyard.
Around 5,000 sq m of Moduleo flooring was specified for the Crown House Homes scheme, designed by Stanley Bragg Architects, a 13-month refurbishment project set to complete this summer. The stylish, spacious development has been designed with the discerning buyer in mind and while each apartment has individual specifications, every property features Moduleo Select Country Oak 24958 and Moduleo Classic Oak 24228.
The product was installed by CBS Supplies, a flooring company established in Colchester more than 25 years ago. ‘As with any apartment scheme, flooring needs to not only look good, but be able to withstand the daily rigour of footfall in and out of the building,’ said Tony Barlow, contracts manager at CBS Supplies.
‘The Station Square project has been finished to a very high standard, so the flooring needed to be stylish, exceptional quality and also fit within the scheme’s budget. It’s often hard to meet all three requirements with one product, but we’ve never had any problems with Moduelo before, so knew we could trust on the flooring to deliver.’
David Bigland, managing director of Moduleo UK & Eire, says: ‘Station Square promises to welcome people with its elegance and appeal, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. High-quality floor coverings is one of the schemes many unique selling points, so we’re very pleased that Moduleo has been featured in the project.
‘The two designs used in the project – Classic Oak and Country Oak – are among of our most popular lines because they give the rustic feel of authentic unfinished timbers, without their drawbacks. With its stain and water-resistance properties, as well as being easy to clean, Moduleo flooring is perfect for any home.’
