The Port of Leith Distillery Project – a feat of construction excellence

Project Details:

  • Client: Port of Leith Distillery
  • Material: Screeds, and Micro Concrete
  • Location: Leith
  • Area: 1200m2

We have built our long-standing relationship with Colorado Construction on mutual trust and respect. Our Port of Leith Distillery (POLD) journey began with a tender process. Initially, we collaborated with the M+E company to deliver heated screeds.

It led to a direct association with Colorado, where we provided unheated screeds and all finishes.

The Project

Colorado entrusted us with Concrete Repair, Screeds, and Micro Concrete finishes on this 1200 m2 project.

The Challenges

The project presented a couple of distinctive challenges:

  1. Space on the site was incredibly limited, akin to a “postage stamp.”
  2. The vertical reach of the project stretched over ten stories, adding to the complexity.

The Process and Materials

Our approach was comprehensive.

We started with installing Mapei Topcem Screeds, followed by Mapei Renovation screed, culminating in applying Mapei Loft Micro concrete finish.

    The Result

    The result was a captivating micro concrete floor with consistent colouring. Given the bespoke nature of these floors, we provided several samples, enabling the client to choose their preferred finish.
