The Project – New Engineering Building, Manchester.
The building features 11,660 m2 of PSA Steel Encapsulated raised floor panels. There are additional areas of BGH which are our Heavy grade floor panels and BEM Edge Banded floor panels. These are all manufactured by Bathgate Flooring in our UK manufacturing facility.
The project is one of the single largest construction projects undertaken by any higher educational institution in the UK.
The completed building will provide an environment for the brightest engineers to innovate and offer real benefits to industry and society. The facilities help to put the University at the forefront of engineering globally.
The panels were specified to PSA Standards. The BGM600 Steel Encapsulated panel is medium grade PSA panel which suits most applications. This was used extensively in the installation. In addition there were installations of BEM600 edge banded and Vinyl Bonded panels in appropriate areas.
