News: Contractor completes Clock Tower refurb


Rotherham commercial flooring specialists, A Cumberlidge, has installed a variety of brand new floor coverings as part of the refurbishment of the Old Clock Tower building at the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield.

Specialising in wall and floor coverings, the sub-contractor was founded in 1947 and moved to Bentley Business Park in Dinnington in 2007.

Originally opened in 1881 as the Sheffield Union Fir Vale Workhouse, the main building housed 1,800 inmates with the clock tower block being the main entrance to staff and visitors. The building now houses office and administration staff for the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust.

Damian Bradley, project manager for A Cumberlidge, said: "The Old Clock Tower has been completely refurbished and we worked closely with Pete Trenchard, estates manager (design) for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, as well as the architect on the project, to find the most suitable floor coverings that would be fit for purpose for many years to come."


The project involved fitting carpet tiles in the offices, timber effect vinyl tiles for the communal space and ground floor, and claret carpet for the grand staircase.

Pete Trenchard, estates manager (design) for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: "Damian's focus on detail and commitment to ensuring the end result was fully fit for purpose, plus his knowledge and experience of floor coverings was invaluable. The Talana carpet used on the staircase, for example, not only looks fantastic but is perfect for the staircase and landing areas which get a huge amount of footfall on a daily basis.

"It's that care and attention and partnership working that A Cumberlidge offer that make them stand out from the rest. Damian was an integral part of the design and specification on this project and I look forward to working with him and his team again on future projects."
