Case Studies

Main school hall flooring

KGS flooring

Prestige Interiors, a renowned authority in office fit-out and refurbishment, embarked on a substantial project within the educational sector. The project centred around the installation of Solid Oak Herringbone Flooring in the main hall of a venerable school. Our mission was to not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of the space but also ensure its functionality for years to come. This involved a series of intricate and exacting steps to seamlessly integrate the new flooring system with the existing structure.

Scope of work

Prestige Interior's scope of work encompassed a meticulous and multifaceted approach to rejuvenating the school's main hall, including:

Uplift of 80-year-old oak flooring

The delicate extraction of an oak floor that had graced the space for eight decades was a challenging yet essential first step in preserving the historical charm of the area. This intricate process included grinding off bitumen adhesive to provide a clean foundation for the new installation.

Infrastructure enhancement

Preparation for modern-day requirements involved the creation of a robust foundation. This encompassed 'chasing' the existing floor to accommodate a three-compartment galvanised steel trunking system, coupled with brass flush floor boxes. These enhancements were seamlessly integrated into the structure, ensuring both practicality and aesthetic continuity.

Subfloor levelling

The application of screed and latex levelling was crucial in guaranteeing a perfectly level surface for the new flooring. This meticulous step laid the foundation for a flawless end result.

Entrance barrier matting system

A key consideration for the project was the incorporation of an entrance barrier matting system, harmoniously integrated into the flush finish. This addition contributed to both the safety and the preservation of the new flooring.

Installation of solid oak herringbone flooring

The culmination of the project involved the expert installation of a stunning solid oak herringbone flooring system. This not only revitalised the main hall but also provided a timeless, durable, and elegant flooring solution.


This transformative project undertaken by Prestige Interiors has breathed new life into the school's main hall, preserving its historic character while ensuring that it meets contemporary standards of functionality and aesthetics. The meticulous execution of each stage in the process, from the delicate uplift of the aged oak floor to the expert installation of the solid oak herringbone flooring, underscores our unwavering commitment to excellence in every aspect of our work.

We take great pride in our ability to seamlessly blend traditional and modern elements in our projects, ensuring that our clients are left with a space that not only meets their practical needs but also resonates with timeless elegance. Our dedication to professionalism, craftsmanship, and client satisfaction is reflected in every detail of this undertaking.
