Case Study: Micro Brewery Flooring

A new business in Yorkshire wanted a brewery flooring contractor to use water drawn from a natural spring to produce beer. They contacted ACC Flooring to manage their start-up project.

The unit acquired by the brewery had seen many uses and changes throughout its life. The site was a bare shell with old concrete floors. Due to the nature of the business, budgets were tight and specification recommendation was crucial to provide the client with products which were not only fit for purpose but aesthetically attractive.

A stainless steel drainage system was supplied and installed cutting into the existing concrete to allow the polymer modified screed to be laid to falls. This would facilitate the flow of water into the drains preventing cross contamination. The brewery floor coating was applied using a Altro Crete 6mm slip-resistant, heavy duty polyurethane screed.

All the process rooms were housed in bund areas where block walls were built by ACC Flooring and protected with polyurethane render to fully protect them from brewing sugars with Altro Crete PU to complete the hygienic environment.

Once the brewery floor was complete, we installed a decorative flake floor in the office and services, whilst a slip-resistant, high build epoxy coating were applied to the vehicle loading areas.

All the works were completed on time and within budget.

Due to the excavation work and the need to remove old floor coverings a huge amount of waste was produced. ACC Flooring’s recycling initiative meant that 98% of all the waste was recycled on this brewery flooring project. Whilst providing a fully sustainable resin flooring solution which will provide many years of service.
