No Glue, No Nails – Floating Floor For Listed Building

Kensington Palace State Apartments in Kensington Gardens, managed by Historic Royal Palaces, has recently been represented and re-opened to visitors. The client chose our solid hardwood floor in an oiled finish for a sophisticated, high quality look for the newly opened Piggot Galleries where the exhibition Fashion Rules is currently showing with a stunning display of modern Royal dress. 

As Kensington Palace State Apartments is a building of special architectural interest and highly protected, fixing to the original fabric are strictly controlled by English Heritage, our Wide Board Oak floors were specified and installed with our unique, floating clip system which meant there was no need for glue or nails. Historic Royal Palaces’ architect, Carden & Godfrey worked closely with contractor NDB to provide specially-designed details to resolve the junctions between the old and new joinery.
