Diamond building features ceramic flooring

The architects who designed the Diamond building at the University of Sheffield have chosen Jurastone ceramic to cover the floors.

The central atrium is the building’s central location and its floor is covered in Solus Ceramic’s Jurastone ceramic flooring that mimics the appearance of stone in its natural state. Twelve architects who designed the building chose Jurastone because of its aesthetic looks, its nonslip surface and its durability.

The matt finish of Jurastone provides contrast to the glazed full-length windows. The space enjoys lots of natural daylight coming from inlets in the ceiling.

The Diamond Building houses the engineering department of Sheffield University and provides facilities for academics and students. The brief for the building was to provide a progressive and sustainable approach to building design. The building is used as a teaching tool for engineering students, with its energy closely monitored and interpreted for the students to learn about efficiency issues.

Peter Toule of Solus Ceramics said that it was a fantastic project to work on, adding:

“The characteristics of Jurastone make the range a great choice for large public areas like The Diamond, creating a solid foundation that presents great impact without detracting away from the stunning architecture.”

Architects and interior designers developing solid flooring in Cheshire and North Wales commercial premises have a large range of floor coverings to choose from. Ceramic flooring is a popular choice for combining stunning looking floors, with anti-slip safety features and long lasting quality that many look for.
