Mapei’s decorative wall covering specified for BUPA healthcare offices

Mapei UK have supplied 500m2 of their complete Ultratop Loft system in Silver Grey Ultratop Loft F & W finishes, and applied these at the BUPA head offices at The Spectrum Building, Cabots Circus, Bristol.

The highly decorative cementitious covering was installed over existing concrete columns during refurbishment works, with installation of the complete Ultratop system taking place over one week during March 2017.

Ultratop Loft is the ideal coating product to create decorative interior floors and walls with a pronounced textured effect. The consistency of the product means that it can be used on both walls and floors and with the scope for installing in a wide range of colours, a variety of unique, attractive and original finishes can be achieved.

Mapei’s technical team provided training to installers TPS 360 to use the Ultratop Loft product. Gary Allman from TPS 360 commented:

“Mapei training was an understanding of the product how to prepare and how to prime, we really like the product now we’ve mastered the silver grey catalogue effect and TPS 360 see some potential for this product and an area of growth in the business.”

The complete system was installed as part of a renovation project for the BUPA offices; the Ultratop Loft was installed over Mapei’s Eco Prim Grip and Primer G primers on the vertical surfaces to provide an unsealed finish.

Ultratop Loft was specified as a highly decorative wall covering by The Bush Consultacy Architects of Bristol. Architect Declan O’ Donnell at Bush consultancy commented:

“We liked the pattern and silver grey cloud effect of the finished Ultratop, looks very modern.”

Thanks to its ease of use, versatility and excellent resistance to abrasion, this product is also ideal for creating decorative floors subjected to intense pedestrian traffic in retail, hospitality and domestic areas in refurbishment and new build environments.
