Polished concrete opulence

Lazenby; the visual concrete master craftsmen

In association with

This luxurious penthouse apartment in Fulham boasts 420 m2 of Lazenby’s Mayfair Grey polished concrete floor throughout. The interior designer for this extensive refurbishment in the Talisman Building specified Lazenby; the premium brand for polished concrete.

Lazenby’s polished concrete floor was laid 90mm deep over underfloor heating, onto the pre-existing concrete base. The Lazenby project engineers designed the new concrete floor to accommodate the existing loadings of the 1930s building. Steel reinforcement included 6 tonnes of 10mm rebar, tied and laid to ensure minimal saw cut joints. The pumped concrete was poured in a designed sequence over three weeks to allow for curing. Brass access boxes from Cableduct were used in the polished concrete floor, to ensure clean architectural lines, and maintain the high quality of the interior design. The installation included a soundproofing layer and eco insulation.

Time and quality were the key drivers. The New Kings Road in Fulham is extremely busy and neighbours needed to be respected - pumping this much concrete takes several hours. The task and exactions of the owner and designer meant quality was essential. Lazenby's experience installing thousands of sq.m of superior polished concrete floor, every year, provided peace of mind. 

Award winning architects, architectural technicians, interior designers and members of the construction industry have been specifying Lazenby concrete for over 20 years throughout the UK, Europe and overseas. All types of projects are undertaken; commercial, retail, public and residential projects of all magnitudes. Lazenby work with local suppliers of the highest quality concrete and ensure that every project undertaken is delivered on time and to budget. As master craftsmen Lazenby always aim to exceed expectations.

The Talisman Building project went through seven key stages with Lazenby:

1. Briefing meeting with the interior design team and their client to scope the project

2. Provision of polished concrete samples once interior design plans were well advanced

3. Estimation, order confirmation and approval process

4. Logistics planning

5. Preparations for poured concrete

6. Installation including diamond polishing

7. Handover, after-care process and welcome pack

Lazenby's new London showroom welcomes visitors by appointment.

A comprehensive range of polished concrete samples, in a unique set of colours to Lazenby and popular finishes are freely available once an order confirmation is received. Bespoke colour matches for specific projects are created for quoted or won projects only.
