Projects

Over many years, we have had the good fortune to have worked within some of the most prestigious, listed properties throughout the UK. Our years of experience and deep rooted knowledge, coupled with many years of research are invaluable in understanding the correct approach when looking after ancient wood floors, or when undertaking the creation and fitting of new complementary floors appropriate for such celebrated spaces.

Campagne, Orlingbury, Kettering

Light Grey Campagne engineered planks for a residential project in the village of Orlingbury near Kettering,

The Space
Part of a significant remodelling project these heavily brushed boards created a platform for the newly introduced elements above floor level. The reason that this floor works so well is that in all the rooms it has been introduced in there is plenty of natural light which accentuates the variation in the grey tones present in the wood floor and also the texture created by the deep brushing of the flooring.

Aspect
The fitting of this floor had a few obstacles which had to be overcome. The leading step of the marble staircase was misaligned or wonky in plain English and as such we had to straighten by cutting the stone in situ without error and also without creating clouds of dust which with care and application we managed. Also the balcony railings had to be removed and the existing wood nosing had to be replaced to match the colour of the new flooring. A patient methodical approach resulted in a successful outcome thankfully!

Planks
Engineered planks have been used for this project due to the greater stability and resilience they offer and their ability to retain their shape and size over time.

Oversized Parquet, Billesdon, Leicestershire

This is a project we supplied and fitted and finished for a private residence just outside Billesdon in Leicestershire.

The Space
The high ceilings and large floor areas of each room required the parquet floor to compete with the grander scale of its intended space. 4 rooms, 200 square metres.

Geometry
The parquet is also micro bevelled to enhance the geometric impact of the herringbone pattern therefore giving a contemporary feel to a traditional style of parquet which also enhances a sense of texture on the floor.

Colour
The floor in essence is very similar in appearance to a chestnut brown with red tones and to some degree quite a formal colour. This may be a colour choice subconsciously arrived at by the fact that the property is surrounded by many Horse Chestnut trees!

Apethorpe Palace Orangery, Northamptonshire

Tilton Country Plank engineered boards for the recently renovated Orangery at Apethorpe Palace.

The Space
The Orangery at Apethorpe Palace has now been fully renovated and its primary purpose has now changed with much sympathy in regards the to magnificent nature of this space and what it now represents and its sentiment.

Geometry
The dimension of the Orangery is quite typical being narrow and long with the quintessential south facing windows flooding the space with sunshine when available. The planks were orientated across the width of the room which creates a greater impression of depth to the room but also enhances the colour of the planks as the natural light runs down the grain of the timber.

Colour
Engineered planks have been used for this project due to the stability and resilience they offer in spaces of changeable climatic conditions.

Montpelier Chapter Hotel

Heritage Wood Floors were commissioned to lay 1200 square metres of parquet flooring in the prestigious 5 star spa Montpelier Chapter Hotel in Cheltenham.

The parquet flooring was in the style of single herring bone and strip flooring. Curved corridors and varying subfloor levels added to the challenges which were overcome resulting in one of the most beautiful floors to grace the Montpelier district of Cheltenham.

Home to the world famous Philharmonia Orchestra and a venue where some of the biggest names in music and the arts have performed. Artists from the past include The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and from the present day, Gary Barlow and Adele.

De Montfort Hall, Leicester

Heritage Wood Floors were proud to undertake the renovation of the maple flooring at De Montfort Hall in Leicester.

Of the utmost importance was the absolute necessity to ensure that the sanding of the wood was carried out as efficiently and cleanly as possible to protect the world famous 6000 pipe organ. Utilising dust containment systems which minimise air borne dust from sanding machines to 99.99%, Heritage Wood Floors ensured that the magnificent work of art that are the Stephen and Sons Ltd pipe organs were protected for future generations to enjoy.
