First class surfaces for student halls
Manchester student accommodation, Liberty Living at Sir Charles Groves Hall, has recently been refurbished to include Max-Top Quartz surfaces in all 78 flats.
Auxillium Property Solutions managed the project and selected the Diamond White Sparkle worktop for all kitchen and breakfast bars in the halls due to its durability and stylish finish.
"Max-Top Quartz offered a solution that was easy to install, aesthetically pleasing and above all, more durable than standard laminate worktops - a factor that is extremely important for student accommodation," explains Dale Cross, managing director of Auxillium Property Solutions.
"It is important to consider the full life cost of any product we recommend, and the quality of Max-Top Quartz surfaces will mean that replacing the worktops every three to four years will be a thing of the past."
Max-Top Quartz, which is available in up to 10 finishes and comes with a 25 year guarantee, is a unique product in the surface market. Featuring a patented interior honeycomb structure, the product offers the aesthetic benefits of a solid stone surface, with the advantage of a deeper 40mm profile.
Stephen Moss, managing director of Max-Top, comments: "Our modular quartz surfaces have been a real success in residential environments where strength and durability is paramount, this is particularly relevant for student accommodation and we are currently working on a number of projects in this sector.
"As our products are lightweight, installation takes no time at all and this can be extremely helpful when planning a large-scale project of this kind."
Dale concludes: "We are very happy with the product, but more importantly, the client is delighted! The new surfaces create a brilliant finish and are going to last for years to come."
