Crown Flooring are delighted to have been involved in the recent DIYSOS project for BBC Children in Need helping Nightsafe, an amazing charity supporting young homeless people in the Blackburn area. The DIYSOS team have transformed a rundown church hall, originally built in the early 1800’s, into accommodation and a support centre for Nightsafe. Crown Flooring fitting staff have been working round the clock to help deliver this wonderful project, from preparation works through to the fitting of LVT, sheet carpet and vinyl. We would also like to thank Gradus and Ardex for their generosity and support in donating materials at short notice.
Crown Flooring recently completed over 45,000M2 of replacement Carpet Tiling in under 3 months for DWP in Newcastle.
On a fully operational, occupied Government site, this was a record breaking feat for a UK Installation of this nature.
The project was completed to a high quality resulting in impressive feed back from DWP & NEP.

This month Crown Flooring celebrate 20 fabulous years in business.
With year on year growth, the recent addition of Crown Finishes & Crown Facilities & a business model the envy of the industry, it is clear to see that the next 20 years will be just as rewarding.
From a regional flooring contractor in 1997 to the stand alone UK Brand in Flooring Framework operations with offices in Cheshire, London, Scotland & very shortly to be added, South Wales, the secret has been a unique approach to business backed by incredible employees.
It is a success story second to none in the Flooring industry & the sheer size, variety, longevity & stability of the client base is testament to that.
‘ We set off with a basic plan to create a Flooring Company that could offer so much more than being regarded simply as a ‘subbie’. We looked to build a unique organisation with direct access to clients on a national scale. Flooring is a massive spend to UK companies and our industry needed to gain more visibility to ensure real value was being achieved. And here we are 20 years later having achieved exactly that & so much more. It is without doubt the hard work and unwavering trust in the Directors business model by our wonderful employees that has brought us here. We would like to thank each and every member of staff. To say we are proud of what we’ve done together would be a massive understatement. You are all superstars, onward & upward. ‘
Wayne Edwards & Tony Thompson : Co-Founders & Directors.

We are delighted to announce that after several years of working with Semperian across their extensive national property portfolio Crown have now entered into a Framework agreement for the next 3 years.
This agreement, signed at the Semperian offices in Daresbury last Friday will result in Crown undertaking the flooring works across the majority ( around 85% ) of Semperian properties in the UK.
Crown have acted as both a key supply chain partner & specification consultant for Semperian. This Framework comes on the back of another successfully completed School programme of works throughout the Summer.
All 3 Crown offices across the UK are heavily involved in Semperian delivery so this Framework is yet another example of the truly unique national service Crown Flooring provide.

MOD being the obvious source of enquiry we have already operated on Ascension Island & are in discussion to look at projects on the Falklands, Cyprus & Gibraltar.
This is a very exciting development for Crown and one we are keen to embrace as a key element to our business model in the coming years.
