CCF has worked with manufacturer Mapei and installer Polished Concrete Designs on a project to provide a sound flooring solution for the prestigious Imperial War Museum during a refurbishment in commemoration of the centenary of the First World War.

Mapei’s high-performance cementitious flooring system, Ultratop, was chosen to provide a flooring system that could accommodate the heavy visitor footfall. In addition, the flooring solution needed a high-quality finish while being quick and efficient to install.

To ensure a quick turnaround, CCF also supplied Mapei Topcem rapid-drying screed – a product that hardens within 24 hours and dries in approximately four days – with Mapei Primer SN, a two-component epoxy pre-filled primer, being applied for a self-smoothing cementitious finish.

The transformed museum now houses additional First World War Galleries, a reconfigured atrium, redeveloped event spaces and improved retail outlets and cafe.
