BARK TO SCHOOL Bostik leads the way with Guide Dogs charity project.


Bostik has donated a range of subfloor preparation products and flooring adhesives for use as part of a charitable initiative to improve the facilities at the Guide Dogs Training School in Leamington Spa.


One of four across the country, the centre trains around 220 guide dogs a year – from basic tasks such as leading in a straight line to more advanced requirements including learning to stop for cars and bonding with their eventual owners.


The four-week project, organised by main contractor Wilmott Dixon as part the company’s commitment to supporting local communities, aimed to transform the centre’s garage training area into a safer and more pleasant indoor space. The renovated facility would allow for more versatile training and, due to increased space, the ability for more dogs to be trained.


To install the flooring in the new training area, Wilmott Dixon contacted Westcotes Flooring, who were happy to support such a worthwhile cause. Westcotes then specified 330m2

resilient vinyl floorcovering and turned to long-term supplier Bostik for its subfloor preparation and flooring adhesive needs.

A RAPID RESPONSE During the early stages of the project, Bostik’s technical team visited the site to carry out preliminary testing, which revealed a high level of moisture in the concrete subfloor. Bostik then prepared a subfloor specification report for Westcotes, helping to determine which of its products would be used.


“We’ve worked with Bostik for many years, and value their service and reactivity very highly, so I had no hesitation in approaching them this time,” says Kirk Nicol, managing director (Midlands) at Westcotes Flooring. “True to form, Bostik responded very quickly and were soon on the site to carry out their preliminary tests.


“The report they produced allowed us to make decisions quickly – which was very much the name of the game on this project – and ensured that those decisions were the right ones.”
