A Cumberlidge with TG Beighton, Tarkett & Tremco at St Wilfred’s Church in Cantley, Doncaster

A Cumberlidge with Tarkett & Tremco at St Wilfrid’s Church in Cantley, Doncaster. St Wilfrid’s Parish Church was built in 1257. In need of a sympathetic refurbishment, the church worked with an architect who presented a labyrinth design for 84sq m of floor in the North Isle using Tarkett Veneto XF linoleum. A Cumberlidge was delighted when Tarkett recommended it for the project. The first stage was to uplift and remove the existing carpet tiles and pews and construct a storage area. Once completed, it delivered the specified Tarkett Veneto XF linoleum to site so the material could acclimatise to the conditions in the church. Next we prepared the existing substrate using Tremco SX300NA smoothing compound 3-4mm thick and applied the first coat of smoothing compound to the 14sq m nave area. Once the smoothing compound had cured, Tremco ES100 DPM was applied to the nave area and, once the DPM had cured, a final coat of Tremco SX300NA was laid. The next task was to lay the new flooring. The labyrinth was supplied in pre-cut pieces that were then fitted together onsite to create a visually stunning centrepiece. It has real significance with churchgoers since it represents the arduous, and often dangerous, journey that was made to the holy land during medieval times.
