iPort Doncaster

iPort Doncaster

Igloo were excited to win and commence the installation of over 1,800m2 of PVC wall cladding at the iPort site in Doncaster in 2017.

Our team installed a standard 2.5mm thick PVC wall cladding with both trim and welded joint detail throughout the different locations in the logistic park.

This project took our teams several months to complete as we had to work to the programme of works the main contractor set out from the start which scheduled our works in at different times throughout the programme. However we are very proud that all works were completed within the timescales given by the main contractor with customer satisfaction accomplished.

The 6 million sq ft logistic park on 337 acres of developable greenfield land and an impressive 35 acre Strategic Rail freight Terminal providing units with direct rail access.

iPort Doncaster is located only 4 miles away from Doncaster Sheffield Airport which is the location of our Doncaster office.

Names such as Amazon, Fellowes, Lidl and Ceva Logistics are already committed or onsite at iPort, Doncaster, one of the largest commercial developments in the UK.

Due to the magnitude of works to be undertaken by the main contractor their H&S expectations were very high which here at Igloo we are used to meeting. Our team worked hard to ensure that all H&S needs were met. The H&S credentials that we already hold in place such as CHAS, Constructionline and Safecontractor went a long way to meeting the needs of the main contractor on site. As standard practice our installation team are all CSCS and Asbestos Awareness certified.

Refurbishment at Harrogate Hospital

Refurbishment at Harrogate Hospital

A refurbishment project went underway at Harrogate Hospital and the main contractor contacted our sales team to price for the project after hearing our wonderful reputation to install the PVC wall cladding.

From this enquiry Igloo won the contract to install all the PVC wall cladding at Harrogate Hospital to ensure the refurbishment of the hospital was on target and to standard.

Our installation team expertly installed over 500m2 of Altro Whiterock in various colours including white, Dusty Grey and Bergamot as well as stainless steel corners ensuring that at all times that the workmanship delivered was of a high standard and ensuring customer satisfaction.

Our team works very long days and weekends to ensure that this project was delivered within the timescales set by the main contractor on site.

The overall project completed delivered a hygienic finish as well as a welcoming and appealing feel for the patients and staff whom will use the facility fo many years to come.

We are proud that our team were able to assist and deliver what was required for the main contractor and since then we have worked on several other projects with this same contractor due to the high workmanship and expertise delivered on this site by our experienced installation team.

Walton Centre

Walton Centre

This week we are showcasing the incredible work our Installation Teams completed at the Walton Centre in Liverpool in 2017.

The Walton Centre in Liverpool is a specialist hospital trust in the UK dedicated to providing comprehensive neurology, neurosurgery, spinal and pain management services.

Our team won the order directly with the main construction company running the refurbishment of this hospital and our team installed over 675m2 of standard PVC wall cladding in various pastel colours with welded joints in various rooms throughout the hospital.

This resulted in our team delivering a hygienic finish and a warm and welcoming feel for this project and all involved were exceedingly happy with the completed finish.

As with all our projects our experienced teams go above and beyond to ensure that all works completed within the timescales given by the main contractor and to the expected workmanship that our company expect as standard.

This includes that the standard practice for our teams is to thermoform around all angles which provides a seamless and professional finish rather than using internal or external angles or and excessive amount of trims as a substitute which some less experienced cladding companies practice.

All our installation teams have the appropriate CSCS qualifications together with in date Asbestos Awareness certifications, with at least one employee in each team being SSSTS, SMSTS and First Aid trained. We are also CHAS accredited and Constructionline and Safecontractor certified company with all the necessary insurances policies in place for everyone’s peace of mind.

Unhappy with your bathroom?

unhappy with your bathroom

Are you one of the many people in the UK that is unhappy with your bathroom?

It is reported that many adults in the UK are not happy with their bathroom. So much so that they are exceedingly embarrassed of any visitor using their ‘facilities’.

With hygiene being a major factor when using any facility whether that is a public or private dwelling, it is not surprising that as we spend a vast amount of time in our bathrooms they need to suit our needs as well as being the most hygienic room (as well as our kitchens) as possible.

Many people when they buy a new home end up with ‘inherited’ bathrooms which they then keep for many years under the pretence that the bathroom is not as important as the living and bedroom area’s within the house.

There are also those that have adopted outdated bathroom suites that would only suit the dynasty phase of the 80’s!

However as more and more people enjoy a soak in the tub or a nice long shower after a hard day at work it is no wonder that they like to have a tranquil, inviting and hygienic environment to be in.

It is also widely known that by installing a new bathroom it will add a vast amount to the value of the property which is always a major plus!

At Igloo we take the standard and design of our panels seriously, that’s why we offer a 20 year guarantee on all our PVC panels. Plus all our PVC panels comply with British standards and are all fire tested.

Also our customer service is quite simply the best. Our team can advise you on all your needs and advise you of what products are best to use in your project including how to install them if you are a DIY enthusiast.

We predict a riot

we predict a riot

We predict a riot over the wonderful array of new products that have started sneaking into our online shop already.

With recent trends depicting that more and more homeowners are becoming brave using colour in their home rather than the standard magnolia, there is no wonder that more and more of the daring colours that are available from our online shop are flying out of the door before we’ve even got them into stock!

We therefore predict that in 2018, with these homeowners wanting to make there own mark on their lovely homes, that this trend will continue throughout the year.

There has already been talk among lifestyle magazines and home design magazines that the following shades could well become very popular as the year goes on.

Mint, Forrest, Moss, Avocado, Sage, Olive – whatever colour you would like to call it or like it to be called, they are all tones of Green and they already seem to be popular this year. Whether it be depth, texture, exotic or the more natural feel you are trying to achieve, the array in which these green tones come in could be precisely what you are looking for.

Gold, Mustard, Canary, Lemon, Pineapple or simply just plain old Yellow – you can be sure that seeing these striking, bright and happy colours will brighten up your home and add style to whatever room you choose to install it in. Not only will it brighten the surroundings but it can provide a warmth and glow to any home.

If you would like to join the riot in 2018 or simply be brave and take the plunge with some bold or subtle colouring to brighten up your home you can be sure that here at Igloo Surfaces we have a colour, sparkle, shimmer or tone to brighten up your year.
