Midland Service Garage feels benefit of Abacus’ experience

Midland Service Garage feels benefit of Abacus’ experience
23/02/2021

Abacus Flooring Solutions has completed another fantastic project, delivering the benefit of the company’s more than 30 years of experience to a motoring service garage. Midland Service Garage is a family-run business based in Scunthorpe that provides vehicle servicing, repairs and MOT tests. They also provide diagnostics, clutches, welding, free local pick-up and delivery. Midland specialises in Volkswagen, Audi, Seat and Skoda repairs using near dealer level equipment. Director Darren Quibell explained: “We contacted Nick after seeing his work on LinkedIn. “We weren’t sure what we wanted but Nick guided us through all of our decisions. “We instantly knew that Nick wasn’t there to sell us a product, but he sold us his experience. “From planning to finished article, Nick contacted us every day to make sure we were happy with the work and talked us through each step. “The floor is unbelievable and has exceeded all expectations.” Abacus Flooring Solutions founder and managing director Nick Megson provided an insight into the process. He explained: “The first step for this project was for it to be surveyed. This included checking for damp and concrete strengths. “We use the latest in Tramex equipment and a Schmitt Hammer to test the concrete. This ensures we can provide a detailed report and with our material suppliers and can agree on the optimum specification. “Once this was all agreed, we prepared a quotation and agreed everything with the customer. “We replaced the vinyl in the canteen with a seamless, decorative flake system and offered to take the flooring up one block of the wall. “This increases the aesthetics and makes it easier to clean “We also proposed to install hatching around the MOT Bay and, once all the new ramps are fitted, we will return to apply the coloured coatings under each one. “This coloured coating will represent the corporate colours of the garage. “The existing concrete floor had previously been painted many times by previous tenants, in fact some areas had a significant build-up of paint. “We had to mechanically prepare the concrete to remove all old coatings, whilst leaving a profile suitable to accept a resin coating. “Once the floor was fully prepared using single headed diamond grinders and then vacuumed the total area ensuring the concrete was free from any dust or debris. “We then mixed and applied the resin coating using a squeegee and back-rolled to ensure the coating was fully applied as per the manufacturer’s instructions. “Prior to the application of the second coat, we carried out final filling and repairs to the day work joints within the concrete. “The coating was supplied by Resdev, who have been manufacturing resin flooring products for over 40 years. “We were very pleased with the results and delighted to hear that the customer is too.” Abacus Flooring Solutions offers more than 30 years’ experience in the industrial resin flooring industry, including installations in a wide range of commercial and industrial environments. Using this experience allows us to ensure we keep on top of new products and technologies to offer completely bespoke solutions to each of our clients.
