Opened in 1854, the Hilton hotel (formerly the Great Western Royal Hotel) located next to Paddington station is one of London’s grandest Victorian hotels offering a full range of 21st-century modern facilities.
Located in the heart of central London this Art Deco hotel has 364 individually crafted guest rooms, including 28 suites.
With over 35 years of excellence in construction, Hotel Development contractors Vascroft were awarded the main contract of renovating the hotel to provide stylish and comfortable sleeping arrangements.
Whilst concrete repair and specialist waterprooﬁng remains a ﬁrm backbone for the company’s operational prowess, Cemplas Waterprooﬁng and Concrete Repairs Ltd have over the years developed into a company carrying out works of all types across a far more varied sector base, and Vascroft duly appointed the specialist ﬂooring division of Cemplas the task installing a pumped pre-bagged Fibre-modiﬁed screed manufactured by Weber to ﬂoors 2–7 with a contact value of £200K.
Cemplas operatives applied Webbers 4716 primer to the substrate to bond 30mm of Weber Floor 4310 pump-applied, ﬁbre-modiﬁed ﬂoor screed which was laid between the ﬂoor steel beams to create a level base. This was followed by the installation of 25mm of X21 hexatherm insulation and topped off with a ﬂoating/unbonded 30–40mm of Weber Floor 4310 incorporating Webers 4945 glass ﬁbre net used within the screed as reinforcement.
In total, Cemplas ﬂooring operatives applied a total area in excess of 3000m2 on time and within budget.
