Technical detail:

The Sahara pre-cast floor tiles were each 1200mm x 1200mm x 30mm and expertly installed by SGH. The 100m2 of tiles were laid over underfloor heating.

10 Sahara sinks – singles and doubles – were cast at Lazenby’s Yeovil manufacturing centre, then carefully transported to site for install by the main contractor. Each sink was mounted on purpose designed and built reinforced wooden vanity units. The sinks varied in weight from 50kg to 150kg and took 2 people to lift into position.

The Sahara pre-cast fire surround was cast off-site and the solid concrete elements installed into the fireplace aperture, using gravity and a fire-retardent bonding agent to stop slippage. The concrete slabs are each 60mm deep and span 2200mm at the widest point.
