ARDEX UK - Lark Hill Village Keeps Young At Heart With Ardex

ARDEX UK, world leaders in premium performance flooring and tiling products, worked alongside one of the Midlands leading tiling specialists, Telling (Finishings) Ltd of Mansfield, to play their part in the development of the UK’s largest retirement village which recently opened in Nottingham.

Lark Hill Village is the result of a partnership between The ExtraCare Charitable Trust, Nottingham City Council, Nottingham City Primary Care Trust, and The Department of Health. Offering the City’s older residents (aged 60 to 95 plus) with a radical alternative to the traditional care home, Lark Hill Village consists of 327 homes with a choice of affordable rent or purchase options. At the heart of Lark Hill's 24-acre site, is a Village Centre with 18 health and leisure facilities including a restaurant, fitness gym, IT Suite and greenhouse, all designed to enrich the lives of villagers, their families and hundreds of visitors from across the community.

To commence the 14,000m2 project, Telling (Finishings) prepared the floor areas, including the Galleria walkway, Street, Spa and Kitchens with ARDEX K 301 Exterior Self-Smoothing Levelling and Resurfacing Compound. ARDEX K 301 is ideal for smoothing and levelling rough and damaged concrete surfaces in external and internal situations. When mixed with water, a fluid mortar is produced which sets within 2 hours and can normally be walked on after approximately 2-3 hours at 20°C. ARDEX K 301 can be applied from 2mm to 20mm in thickness, with the set and hardened surface usually available to receive light wheeled traffic after 48 hours at 20°C.

For the tiling stages, ARDEX X 7 Rapid Setting Flexible Tile Adhesive was used to fix Craven Dunnill Project Ceramics Porcelain tiles to the public areas and balconies within the apartments. ARDEX X 7 R is ideal for projects that require a fast track installation, as it is ready to be walked on and grouted just 2 hours after application. Features of ARDEX X 7 R include reduced slip, excellent slump resistance, superior application properties and suitability for use with underfloor heating, as well as being perfect for all types of wall and floor tiles, in both internal and external locations.

All of the tile joints were grouted with ARDEX-FLEX FL Rapid Setting, Flexible Tile Grout. In addition to the key features of built-in admix, flexibility, water repellence, ease of application and dirt resistance, ARDEX-FLEX grouts are now available in 32 amazing colours enabling the grout to match perfectly with the chosen tiles.

Commenting on the project, Phil Telling of Telling (Finishings) Ltd said, “Lark Hill Village is an inspirational development, finished to an exceptionally high standard. By teaming up with ARDEX, we were able to provide a high performance flooring and tiling solution that not only met the needs of the environment, but enabled us to comply with a particularly demanding programme.”
