Keeping it simple is one of our core philosophies at Continental, and we’ll always strive to give the customer the easiest solution.

Our client was working on a barn conversion with a large ground floor, which had a traditional floor make up. Speed and efficiency are always vital cogs in any renovation or new build.

The client had previously renovated a customer's property in the UK, and had the opportunity to develop a holiday home in France. The gîte in Naillat would include a heat pump as a heat source and underfloor heating throughout. There was to be a new solid floor on the ground floor, with joist construction planned for the two upper floors. The project was a combination of existing and new build areas, so required a number of different install solutions.
Product: FlowMaster™ AluPlas™
The customer was doing an extensive kitchen and dining renovation which involved completely replacing the ground floor. Having recently purchased the property he was keen to complete the floors before any of the additional works. Not wanting to go to the expense of commissioning detailed architectural plans, he employed a pencil and a tape (and no ruler…) so that underfloor heating could be priced.

The customer of this new build project in Surrey was very specific with his instructions. The heating system was to be underfloor in the kitchen and wet rooms, with radiators in the remainder of the ground floor. All materials installed in the property had to be of the highest specification.

A developer was constructing two identical two-storey properties. The ground floors were to have conventional liquid screed floors, with the underfloor heating pipes laid onto the insulation and the screed poured on top. The upstairs heating was originally specified as radiators, as the first floor deck had already been laid.
