About The Job

One such project that stands as a testament to our expertise was at Ardingly College – an independent co-educational boarding and day school for children aged 2-18 located in the picturesque countryside of West Sussex. The task involved restoring their well-worn sports hall floor which had seen years of use without proper maintenance.

The challenge lay not only in reviving the worn-out flooring but also ensuring it could withstand future wear while maintaining its aesthetic appeal – a crucial aspect considering the prestigious reputation of Ardingly College.

What We Did

Our approach began with employing our patented four-stage floor sanding technique designed specifically for situations like these where extra care is needed due to heavy usage or ageing floors. This process involves meticulous preparation, precision sanding, detailed finishing, and thorough cleaning post-sanding.

We used professional-grade lacquers from renowned brands like Bonakemi, Loba, Junkers & Loba along with Blanchon gap filling resin during this process. These products are known for their superior quality which ensures longevity even under demanding conditions like those found in a sports hall environment.

For staining & varnishing purposes we relied on Morrells professional wood stains known for their rich pigmentation that provides long-lasting colour retention while enhancing the natural grain pattern inherent in wood flooring materials.

To finish off this comprehensive restoration job we applied Osmo oils followed by hard wax oil sealing which gives added protection against moisture ingress besides imparting a warm hue to enhance visual appeal.


The result was nothing short than spectacular! The once tired-looking sports hall came back alive radiating warmth emanating from its newly restored wooden floorboards now gleaming under protective layers promising durability alongside aesthetics!

This transformation did not go unnoticed by students staff alike who were thrilled see their beloved space rejuvenated ready take on more sporting events activities filled renewed vigour enthusiasm much akin spirit GJP Floor Sanding brings every single one projects undertaken us!
