Occupying a 100 acre site just outside Edinburgh, Gogaburn is an innovative work/life environment for 3000+ workers. The main building’s seven ‘business houses’ surround a covered retail ‘street’ and the campus has its own transport links as well as nursery, health, leisure and conference facilities.
Architects RHWL, working with project architects Michael Laird Partnership, specified Junckers floors for several areas. To meet the project’s environmental requirements, Junckers had to demonstrate the sustainability of all of its floors, which were also submitted for and passed extensive safety/slip tests. 2000 m² of Junckers’ solid Jatoba WideBoard flooring is used in offices, corridors, walkways and conference areas in the main office block, with 280m² of Junckers’ solid Oak in the Bar Bistro area and 340 m² of Premium Beech in the fitness club. The flooring contractor was McKay Flooring of Glasgow.
