TTA Awards highlight top projects


T


he annual TTA Awards have been held recently via an online format – which turned out to be a great success.


Kyran Bracken MBE hosted and the Awards recognised excellence and achievement in tiling across a range of categories. The Gold sponsors, without whom these Awards would not be


possible, were: Banks & Lloyd, Jackoboard, Mapei, Norcros Adhesives, Palace Chemicals, PCS, Shackerley (Holdings) Group Ltd., Tilemaster Adhesives, Trimline Group, UltraTileFix and Verona. Among the key categories, Best Domestic Project highlighted a superb


bathroom tiling job. The category was won by Arrow Tiling for their work at 75 Eaton Square, Belgravia. Arrow Tiling transformed the bathroom, kitchen, WC and hallway at this exclusive residential property. They were responsible for the whole job – sourcing the materials, setting out and installation. The most impressive aspects were the bathroom, featuring a walk-in shower, the bath, vanity unit with shelving, underfloor heating and fully book-matched large format porcelain tiles. As experienced installers of these tiles, Arrow knew that this project


was going to be quite challenging. This was due to the amount of mitred corners involved and the need to wrap the tiles around all corners and angles to give a completely book-matched appearance. All mitres were resin filled and polished, giving the seamless impression that the client requested.


The floor was the same tile but in a matt finish that also book-matched


and in total they used 16 large tiles for the floor and walls. Above the vanity and into the shelves all areas are book-matched and a continuation of the pattern can be seen in the reflection of the mirror from all angles. Over the last few years they have noticed a


dramatic increase in the number of clients wanting to use large format panels, so that now nearly half of the company’s work is installing panels of up to 300mm x 1500mm x 6mm in size. This particular job was one of the best yet.
