Romo HQ, Nottinghamshire
Romo is a market leader in the design of exclusive fabrics, wallcoverings, trimmings and accessories for interior design. Generations of experience and distinctive British design are the foundation of the Romo brand. Since establishing its own in-house design studio in the 1980s Romo has continued to grow and is now a market leader in designer fabrics and wallcoverings.
2020 saw the completion of The Romo Group’s new UK Headquarters in Sutton-In-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire. The culmination of years of planning led to the creation of this architecturally outstanding building that combines a state-of-the-art warehouse, 3 design studios and an office space for more than 350 employees. With CEO Jonathan Mould being closely involved throughout the design process, meticulous attention to detail played a key role in developing the exceptional building.
Norcros Adhesives became involved with the Romo project through architect firm Maber, who had previously participated in a Norcros CPD seminar. The tiling contractors on this project were Anglian Tiling based out of Yorkshire & The Humber.
“Norcros Adhesives really helped to solve problems that cropped up in key areas of the Romo project and offered great cost-saving solutions throughout the process” says Rod Crossland, Contracts Manager at Anglian Tiling.
The total tiled area came to a huge 4500m2 using Mosa Terra Tones 1200 x 300 and 1200 x 600 mm ceramic tiles. Permalayer was used in the main areas to enable tiles to be fixed onto green screeds due to tight time scales on the project. Norcros Pro 50 was used to level the floors throughout the project, as well as Norcros S1 Standard Set Adhesive to create thick and solid bedding of the large format Mosa tiles. Norcros Super Epoxy grout made sure tiled areas throughout the project were waterproof.
The Romo project also included the creation and tiling of staff shower rooms, so Norcros Wet Seal Tanking Membrane was applied in all wet shower areas as well as Stop Mould Grout to suppress any black spots from growing in these beautifully designed bathrooms.
