Taking full advantage of Forbo Flooring Systems’ high quality, digital printing capabilities, The Sheila Bird Group has helped Manchester Science Partnerships (MSP) to create the wow factor in the main social space of their client’s Greenheys building. Their custom-designed A to Z map of Manchester, digitally printed onto Forbo’s durable vinyl floor covering, has created an eye-catching and engaging focal point.

As one of the UK’s leading science park operators, MSP wanted an events and community space on the park that would encourage its group of scientists, innovators, investors and entrepreneurs to connect with one another.

Chris Naughton at The Sheila Bird Group commented: “The interior of MSP’s Greenheys building has a lot of exposed brick and so we wanted to retain the industrial feel of the building within the space, but also install a completely unique floor covering to inject a stand-out feature in the area. Therefore, we created a custom A to Z map, pinpointing the various MSP buildings dotted around Manchester in different colours, enabling visitors to immerse themselves into the map and orientate themselves in the city by just looking at the floor covering.”

There are no limits to the aesthetic designs that can digitally printed onto Forbo’s Eternal vinyl which retains the full performance specification of the Eternal core collection; durable, high quality and easy to clean and maintain.

Chris commented: “We have used Forbo on many projects as they are able to offer good quality products at a competitive price and have the ability to deliver custom floor coverings – something we definitely desired and attained for this project. Indeed, the interior of the building could not have looked this great without Forbo. This project has been very successful and it has led to us developing a great relationship with MSP.”
