Mile End Park
Mile End Park
Mile End Park Leisure centre, an award winning £15million development, masterminded by Roberts Limbrick Architects, is just one of the many leisure centres we are proud to have contributed to. Described as ‘a very complex building, both from spatial and technical considerations’, by David Anderson, Associate Director of Roberts Limbrick, Mile End Park Leisure Centre was an important project for Tower Hamlets, and the local area. Roberts Limbrick sought the very latest technology for this project, “Strata provided information and samples on the very latest ‘state of the art’ products – a really important aspect of the architect’s role in selecting and specifying products,” says David Anderson. Recognising the value of a self-cleaning tile, our Hydrotect coated range was specified for the swimming pools, and a number of other key locations.
A tile that cleans the air we breathe? Surely not! Hydrotect coating does just that. It not only removes bacteria and dirt without abrasive cleaning, it also purifies the air we breathe. It’s been proven – 1000sqm of Hydrotect tiles provides the equivalent oxygen levels as 70 deciduous trees. This innovative coating also provides a self cleaning effect. Formaldehyde, bacteria, germs and algae are all decomposed, and maintenance costs are greatly reduced. This innovative coating can also help maintain a comfortable room temperature. An innovation for the modern world and for Mile End Park Leisure Centre.
The walkways in the Mile End Park centre were tiled with one of our most popular collections, Technical Basalt. Roberts Limbrick were eager to specify a product that ‘ensured compliance with anti-slip regulations, but also provided ease of cleaning in use’ – Technical Basalt proved the perfect match. Technical Basalt is a rich portfolio of fully vitrified porcelain tiles available in a range of urban tones. These tiles are perfect for high traffic environments, having also been used at Topshop and Topman Oxford Street and many other exclusive projects. ‘Technical Basalt seems to appeal to everyone,’ says Trevor Horsley, former Director of Strata Tiles, ‘It can be used to make a statement or simply complement the surroundings.’
