Bon Accord Centre, Aberdeen
A De Cecco played an integral part of the refurbishment of Aberdeen’s prestigious Bon Accord shopping centre, and, despite being faced with various challenges, the tiling projects were delivered successfully and to our usual high standards. Circular patterns were a common theme on the project, with a lot of care and attention being spent on details such as mirroring curved ceiling patterns on the floor tiles, as well as tiling to curved walls and seating areas with large format tiles.
A De Cecco delivered the project while ensuring the centre’s normal day-to-day operations were not disrupted. This resulted in the vast majority of our work being completed out of hours with extensive research, at the planning stage, going into the various types of adhesives and grouts so that we had selected the best materials to suit the working conditions and time constraints.
Union Square, Aberdeen
Union Square is Aberdeen's largest shopping centre and A De Cecco was fortunate enough to work on this prestigious project and deliver some outstanding work on this much-loved city destination. With approximately 9000m2 of tiling, including a complex mix of granite and porcelain walls and floors throughout the shopping centre, the project presented an exciting opportunity for A De Cecco to demonstrate its experience and knowledge in delivering large-scale projects to a very high standard.
University of Glasgow’s Centre for Virus Research
A De Cecco was selected to carry out the wall and floor tiling at the new £20 million medical research centre for virus research at University of Glasgow. The work mainly consisted of floor tiling using a 1200x600mm Domus tile, and, a bush hammered finish was used on the external steps, this was complemented by bull-nosed tiles to form treads which A De Cecco was able to provide ready cut thanks to its in-house capacity to supply bespoke finishing to tiles.
A De Cecco was delighted to be awarded the Best use of Tile in a large construction contract at the TTA's 10th Anniversary Awards in 2010 – a rewarding testimonial to the company’s efforts.
