PDQ Contract Flooring Ltd had a call to ask if we could install 600 sq m of Dinesen Douglas Fir in a well-known retailer’s new showroom in Brompton Rd., Knightsbridge. “Of course”, we replied. It transpired that there was in fact to be two lorry loads of 4500 mm long boards, 450 mm wide and 35 mm thick to get from the roadside to the 4th floor by means of the fire escape !!
Not ones to shirk a challenge, we duly attended and installed the floor, sanded and filled the boards on completion and applied the lye by hand, followed by several coats of white soap. The results were truly stunning !!
