Case Study – Homebase Store

Project Details

  • Client: Homebase
  • Main Contractor: Gilbert Ash
  • Specialist Contractor: Larsen Contracts Ltd
  • Application: Epoxy screeds and anti-slip coatings provided by Remmers
  • Market: Retail

Homebase is the UK’s second largest home improvement retailer and is recognised for choice, style and customer service across the wider home enhancement market with more than 300 large, out-of-town stores throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland. Homebase are the anchor tenant occupying a 30,000 square feet unit in Navan Retail Park which is a EUR70m development by Knockumber Property Developments, a 50/50 joint venture between Blackrock International Land and Lagan Developments (Holdings). Gilbert Ash appointed Larsen Contracts as supply and application contractor for the internal floor finishes as part of the fitout of the new retail unit. The existing concrete floor was surveyed and works agreed with the main contractor. Remmers epoxy mortars were used to repair any damages to the existing floor and Remmers anti-slip coatings were subsequently applied. Larsen Contracts were delighted to participate in these works which Homebase demonstrated their commitment to corporate social responsibility by focusing on minimizing the environmental impact of the store fitout and by saving EUR600,000 in the process.
