A UZIN system was used to install the ‘herringbone’ wood floor with the new Sainsbury Gallery at the V&A. The Sainsbury Gallery opened in June 2017 as a part of the V&A Exhibition Road Quarter. The expansion created a beautiful and unique space for London, and a world class gallery space for the V&A’s internationally acclaimed exhibition programme. The 1100 square metre column-free Sainsbury Gallery, is one of the largest temporary exhibition spaces in the UK and was created by excavating 18 metres below ground, directly beneath the V&A’s Grade I listed buildings.

The flooring contractor Architectural Flooring Specialists decided to use UZIN products because a high quality finish was vital at this prestigious project.  UZIN provide fail safe installation systems. UZIN also provided exceptional technical service and back up throughout the installation to help with any queries during the project. Firstly UZIN PE 404, resin DPM was used to protect the floor from residual moisture within the concrete substrate. UZIN PE 280 a rapid drying primer was then applied to the floor before UZIN NC 150, a heavy duty smoothing compound was installed. UZIN MK 92 wood adhesive was then used to install the intricate herringbone parquet floor. The new Sainsbury Gallery provides a spectacular, dynamic and flexible exhibition space and the floor helps create an outstanding, unique and atmospheric environment.
