IVC Commercial meets the challenge of today’s young professionals

LVT floors from IVC Commercial have been used in one of Manchester’s latest build-to-rent projects, Affinity Living Trinity Riverside.

Affinity Living Trinity Riverside offers luxurious PRS accommodation across a mixture of studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments with 15 different layout styles. Including co-working space and lounges, Trinity Riverside serves the needs of today’s young professionals.

IVC Commercial worked with Select Property Group, operator of Trinity Riverside, to deliver affordable floor finishes that would uphold the high living standards of the project, while also fulfilling the need to maximise ongoing profitability. Across 11,000m² of floor space, IVC Commercial has provided LVT for apartment living areas, off-site constructed bathroom pods from Offsite Solutions, communal amenity space, corridors and lift lobbies.

For apartment living areas and communal amenity space, a bespoke colour of the natural wood effect of Moduleo 55 Verdon Oak was developed to complement the proposed interior scheme. For the bathroom pods the standard dark grey plank of Verdon Oak 24984 was specified. In corridors and lift lobbies, the rich tone of Ethnic Wenge 28890 was chosen; corridors making use of standard planks while lobbies saw a bespoke herringbone format.

Throughout the project, IVC Commercial’s Moduleo 55 LVT specification has been used. Designed to deliver maximum performance in commercial environments, Moduleo 55 provides durability and ease of maintenance, equipped with Protectonite® for a floor finish that’s easy to look after by renters and maintenance teams alike. Opting for the same high-performance specification throughout ensures that Affinity Living Trinity Riverside utilises a floor made to withstand intense use, providing a long life while bringing a natural look to foster wellbeing within private and shared spaces.

David Bigland, managing director, IVC Commercial, comments;

“PRS projects present a need for floors that are desirable, comfortable and easy to look after for renters, while durable enough for operators to minimise ongoing costs. Working with Select Property Group, including the development of bespoke solutions, we’ve been able to meet this challenge, providing floors that uphold the high aesthetic principles without compromising affordability throughout the life of the project.”

IVC Commercial’s Moduleo 55 LVT features up to 50 per cent recycled content and is made using renewable energy in one of Europe’s most efficient flooring production facilities. Affinity Living Trinity Riverside is the first of several partnerships for IVC Commercial and Select Property Group in Manchester including Trinity Riverview, Embankment West and Circle Square; projects totalling approximately 93,000m². Floors were installed by specialist contractor, Axiom Group.
