Dundee success for Gerflor’s Creation 70 LVT with Jon Frullani Architects

Jon Frullani Architects - Gerflor Flooring

When Dundee-based architects Jon Frullani wanted to refurbish their own Grade B listed office and architecture practice, they turned to international flooring specialist Gerflor to supply a world class solution. 250m2 of their Creation 70 LVT Dryback vinyl flooring in ‘Deep Forest’ was chosen and installed at their offices, the décor has completely enhanced the renovation project. The LVT flooring has been used throughout the practice including the offices, communal areas including corridors, staff break-out areas, recreation space and the kitchen.
At Jon Frullani Architects their approach from the outset is to offer a full range of architectural services in-house. This ensures that their clients can have added peace of mind that they are in the safe hands of a credible and well-respected practice that will take care of the project requirements down to every detail. From feasibility studies, planning applications, building warrants, construction, and right through to the interior design of completed projects…it’s a true one-stop-shop architectural service.
Jon Frullani, Architect, and Company owner commented, “We have been converting the category B listed building, originally a church manse, on Perth Road in Dundee since 2019 and completed the project earlier this year”.
Jon Frullani added, “The building had many uses in the past, including the laboratories for the Dundee City Public Analyst in the 1970’s. Prior to this it was an interior design showroom and most recently a restaurant. The property has now been fully renovated to accommodate our growing architecture practice.”
Jon Frullani further commented, “We specified Creation 70 LVT from Gerflor as it was the most suited product for our bespoke requirements. The specific design chosen was Deep Forest. It was sympathetic to the muted interior, and it tied in with the original flagstone floor at the entrance and exposed stone wall in the primary office space. In fact, there is not one level floor in the entire building and the Creation 70 LVT has coped very well in this challenging situation.” On specification, Jon Frullani also said, “A key consideration for the product specification was how well it would perform with heavy traffic. The practice required a hard wearing and durable solution due to high footfall with the general office environment. The installation of the Gerflor flooring was also extremely smooth and trouble-free.”
Maggie Smith, Gerflor Specification Manager, Scotland said, “This was a fantastic project to be involved in. Working alongside Jon Frullani himself and looking at the specific requirements for this prestigious location, it was clear to me that our Creation 70 LVT Dryback would provide the best-in-class solution for the areas concerned. Aesthetically Deep Forest, in its richness of colour and authentic embossed design the office environment perfectly and it will perform exceptionally well with the office footfall.”
