Twickenham Stadium is the official home of English rugby.
This flagship project illustrates the versatility of resin flooring and how it can be both aesthetically pleasing in a commercial application and function as a durable solution for a whole host of environments, not just factories and warehouses.
A floor that was able to withstand high levels of footfall at one time was an essential requirement to fulfil the needs of the environment as the floor would be exposed to potentially hundreds of thousands of people visiting Twickenham Stadium in its lifetime.
This involved an assortment of captive shot blasting to concrete and vacuum controlled diamond grinding to screed areas.
The solution supplied involved installing 3000m2 of Sika Schönox FPL Plus levelling screed and Sika ComfortFloor® PS-27 with concrete repairs over 4 levels of the stadium (levels 1, 2, 4a and 5).
Within the client’s specification, a consistent, seamless finish with zones demarcated by different colours were listed as a desirable criterion. The ComfortFloor System gives the client endless choices of colour and design options. There are 70 standard Sika ComfortFloor® colours available, with the ability to produce almost any RAL Classic or NCS 1950 colour as required.
For this project, RAL 7035 was chosen as the main colour with alternative shades for zones areas around the space including bar areas etc. Specific patterns / logos and designs were proposed as the system allows for transfers to be applied direct on to the system which are made seamless by an additional seal coat. The Sika ComfortFloor® system produced a durable, functional, aesthetically pleasing floor finish that is designed to withstand significant footfall in the coming years.
“MJF were engaged to provide specialist resin coatings to the new flagship east stand development at Twickenham Stadium. I was particularly impressed with the team working ethos of MJF, bringing to the project a wealth of technical and market experience by advising our design team on the selection of products, which was key, given the demanding nature of the project. MJF showed exemplary levels of commitment to the project working around interfacing trades and to tight timescales. I would like to take the opportunity to thank them for supporting Willmott Dixon during the delivery of the Twickenham ESD project and would recommend them without reservation.”

This project required MJF’s highly skilled and qualified workforce due to the technical nature and extent of the job. The results were breath-taking, and it was extremely rewarding to exceed our client’s expectations.
We are proud of all our team members involved in making this project at Twickenham Stadium such a success. At times, we were faced with challenges that surfaced during the project which threatened to cause the initial agreed finish date to be pushed back. However, with careful consideration, planning, organisation and a united team effort, we were able to overcome the challenges that arose, safeguarding a timely and on budget project outcome.
