Clas Ohlson is one of Sweden’s leading retailers known for its broad vision and pursuance of excellence.

The retailer’s recent expansion into the UK market saw the opening of a new store in Frenchgate Shopping Centre, Doncaster. Previously occupied by Woolworths, the retail space required a rapid refit to allow trading to begin before the lucrative Christmas period.

The old store was laid out over three floors so its complete demolition left a blank canvas for the new tenant; however the floor surface had a variety of finishes, ceramic tiles, vinyl, carpet and timber. The internal demolition of masonry walls also left many tracks in the sub floor. A lot of these problems were not anticipated when the original fast-track programme was compiled.

Larsen Contracts carried out a detailed site inspection and compiled a fast-track technical proposal for the removal and making good of the entire shop floor.

A level survey of the floor surface was carried out to determine the extent of the remedial works. A three night and day programme was drawn up to allow installation while the remaining trades completed their works. This required 24hr working to install the Larsen rapid drying remedial screed range. This was topped with high strength Larsen Professional SLC1500 pumped levelling screed, ready to accept the high specification tile finish.
