The Hive, Watford Case Study

Specific Areas of Work:         Bespoke Counters/Housing, Toilet Cubicles, Kitchen fit-out, Flooring and Decoration

What we did:

The main circulation area was carpeted in Interface carpet tiles.  In the servery area, the existing concrete floor was polished and sealed to a mid-sheen finish, and Polysafe PUR Standard sheet vinyl flooring applied behind the counter.

The walls have been finished in Polyflor Expona Commercial vinyl planks, laid in a horizontal pattern.  The planks have been used throughout, including at high-level.

The toilets have been finished to a high standard.  The cubicles have been constructed from metal stud partition and finished in emulsion paint with herringbone pattern tiles with two feature colours.  The IPS panelling system and cubicle doors are in a laminate finish.  The sink troughs were bespoke Staron solid surface construction with storage underneath.  CPF also supplied and installed a Doc M disabled toilet facility.

The new servery counter manufactured in-house by CPF, constructed in hard wearing white melamine faced MDF have been finished to the customer side with tiles in a herringbone pattern, which included two feature colours.  The counter was trimmed throughout using Staron beads to give the tiling “framed” effect.  The tiling and Staron trim design has been carried on to two freestanding patisserie housings and the back bar units.  The main counter has been enhanced by the addition of a large powder coated steel frame but is also used functionally to carry services.  The stepped Staron Sanded Tundra worktops, in the same finish as the beads and trims completed the high quality look of the servery overall.

CPF performed the kitchen/back-of-house fit-out.  This involved installing the UPVC hygienic wall cladding, Polysafe flooring and wipe-down ceiling tiles in a white suspended grid.

CPF undertook this comprehensive high specification and high quality food service facility fit-out at The Hive.  A facility which our clients are very pleased with and which CPF are proud to have helped them realise.
