Floors at the Royal Horticultural Halls restored to former grandeur


Oct 10, 2009 | News

The Royal Horticultural Halls and Conference Centre (RHH) has recently undergone a major refurbishment of its original wooden parquet floors at the Lindley and Lawrence Halls. Both spaces are constantly in use for a wide variety of events including award ceremonies, banquets, fashion shows and product launches, all of which had taken their toll on the original pitch pine and teak floors.

With the surge of recent business, finding the opportunity to complete the work was tricky. However, Alan Tracy Limited completed the job quickly using Bona lacquers, in a short window between events at this busy venue.

Stuart Medhurst, head of operations at The RHH, says: “It’s important to keep the Halls looking perfect, as their striking appearance draws a lot of interest from clients and visitors. A refurbishment on this scale can be difficult to schedule, but the team at Alan Tracy was very professional and able to work around our clients. We have already received many positive comments which go to show that a little can go a long way.”

A client who recently held an event in the Halls commented: “The floors were a key selling point for us and we were very keen on keeping them exposed for the event. They compliment the Halls’ elegant structure and are a really great feature.”
