Technical detail:

Lazenby’s polished concrete floor has been installed 100mm deep over underfloor heating. Retrofitting polished concrete onto a concrete subbase requires careful attention to finished floor levels. The floor was poured and allowed to cure before the kitchen was fitted. This elegant and compact space required protection of all existing surfaces and architectural features.

The joint plan complements the angles of the extended property and ensures that the floor cures as evenly as possible. The characteristic mottled effect of polished concrete is what appeals to architects and homeowners alike. With concrete’s thermal mass it is very effective with underfloor heating.
