Nursery triumph for Gerflor

Gerflor

In 2014 Tavistock House Day Nursery Ltd were given the go-ahead to turn a former boxing club in Hetton, Sunderland into a new pre-school nursery.

At Hetton House Day Nursery they believe that the early years in a child's life are very important. Ensuring that the children and staff would have a safe and comfortable environment that would be fit for purpose would be at the forefront of their planning, which would of course include the best quality flooring possible. The installation would be done by Tyne and Weir-based Aiken Flooring Contracts Ltd, with the final choice of products falling to international flooring and interiors specialist Gerflor, who would supply 513m² of their hugely popular Taralay Impression Control and Tarasafe Ultra products.
