Case Study: Service That Shines

In December 2020, Donnelly Watson were approached by Hope Church to install brand new flooring throughout their newly acquired HQ in Ipswich, Suffolk. The iconic building - formerly an Odeon Cinema, had stood empty since 2005 and was ready for a complete transformation into a fantastic community hub at the heart of the town centre.

A Tailored Service

The unique space comprises a 600 seater auditorium, several multi-use spaces of all shapes and sizes, toilets and two cafe / bar areas. A fabulous project for us to sink our teeth into!

With a combination of uses required, a tailored approach and wide variety of flooring products are now showcased within this building.

Burmatex, Tivoli Belize Greige carpet tiles were a firm favourite due to the durability and practicality of the finish and are used on the ground, 1st, 2nd & 3rd floor rooms, stairs and landings.

Although the fit of the reception Foyer culminated the project, the use of Karndean, Art Select Morning Oak Parquet, laid in a herringbone pattern made for a striking first impression to its new users.

Testing Times

Although we are well-accustomed to projects of this nature; due to its magnitude, it is no surprise we had to overcome a few challenges throughout the building’s 9 month transformation.

As the work was carried out through the COVID-19 pandemic, our involvement was subject to incredibly tough restrictions and stringent Health & Safety regulations. This included regular symptom testing and strict access schedules to avoid cross contact with other operatives.

“Every member of the Donnelly Watson fitting team was involved in the installation process. With many rooms to consider and various flooring options selected to suit end use, each team member was utilising based on their specific skill sets. This ensured a truly flawless finish as efficiently as possible to ensure continuity of this project.”

- Scott Watson, Managing Director of Donnelly Watson
