We installed close to 100 square metres of Mondéco Rapide in and around the restaurant central bar area.
The product we laid is a new and innovative MMA terrazzo flooring system from Flowcrete UK which is a new fast-turnaround seamless resin terrazzo flooring system.
Mondéco Rapide provides a luxury finish with extensive design potential including colour and pattern options featuring locally sourced British marble aggregate blends. Based on methyl methacrylate (MMA) technology, the system has been designed to reduce the overall installation time associated with epoxy or polyurethane resin terrazzo flooring systems by up to 75%.
At Leicester Square Kitchen, installation works were completed in a small, tight and confined area, adding an element of complexity to the project for the application team. The team also worked throughout the night to ensure that other trades could access the site in the day. This was achieved due to the curing times of the MMA product as it was able to be trafficked in just a few hours allowing us to board over it after the night shift so that the day trades could work around it. This is something that would not be possible with the traditional Mondeco products which would need 16-24hrs curing time meaning trades wouldn’t of been able to work during the
The installation process involved the use of Flowfast F1 Mortar to level the substrate prior to the application of Mondéco Rapide. Diamond grinding techniques were also employed to grind the Mondéco Rapide to a smooth, level surface exposing the marble aggregates. Finishing with a seal and burnish to the surface to achieve a clean and glossy finish.
