|First Presbyterian Church, Londonderry
Architect / Designer:
Armatile were commissioned
to manufacture and install a new floor in the main body of First Presbyterian
Church in Londonderry. The new flooring had to be created to match
the original floor being kept in the entrance porch. The client was the church committee who were
overseeing the renovation to ensure that their budgets were maintain while the
integrity of the church’s heritage was retained.
Armatile’s reputation for
heritage and conservation restoration projects led the client to contact its
contracts manager Peter Rafferty.
Following discussions with the client Armatile produced samples that
meet approval for colour, design and material.
Ultimately, Armatile was able to meets the needs of the client by
fabricating a cost effective tile design in its factory in Armagh
that blended fantastically well with the original floor.
One of the technical issues
rising from installation was that the new floor was to be installed onto
Plywood. Armatile fitted the floor using
high specification latex adhesives and grouts as advised by the technical
support department from Mapei.
The ability and knowledge
gained from previous projects provide us the capacity to fabricate unique
detailed designs on request and to plan productions runs to suit large and
The client wanted a special
crest made and installed. Using a
photograph of the emblem on the Church Flag, Armatile designed, programmed and
manufactured a one off panel for this project.
