A successful commercial project

N&C Moderna Contracts have been working together with construction giant, Morgan Sindall Construction on the ‘Museum of St Albans Development’ completed in February 2019 on the site of the former Museum of St Albans. 


The development retains the Victorian façade from the old museum, which has been extended to create six open plan units. The onsite bungalow was demolished to create four four-bedroomed terraced homes.


The project required extensive tiling works for the ten luxury houses, which consisted of tiling the walls and floors of the entire ground floor, kitchen, W.C., lounge, hallways, bathroom and ensuite which totalled to in excess of 1200m2 of tiling. 


The tile specified for the project was ‘Time’, by N&C which is a technically advanced double loaded, through-bodied porcelain tile with a slip resistance PTV of 36> for shod and wet foot traffic. The walls were tiled using various colours of 300 x 600, whilst the floors were tiled using 600 x 600mm of the Time floor tile counterpart. 


The ‘Museum of St Albans Development was a highly crucial and transformational project for St Albans City & District Council as it was the city’s first residential development since 2012. The completed development had marked a crucial step towards the council’s plans to regenerate the city centre following the successful relocation of Museum of St Albans to the old Town Hall.


N&C Moderna were recognised by Morgan Sindall Construction achieving perfect delivery and offering exceptional service during the contract which was presented to the team towards the end of the year. 


David Rowsell, area director for Morgan Sindall Construction in the Northern Home Counties, said “The project team has successfully delivered this complex scheme to the highest standards - successfully incorporating the original Victorian façade into the redevelopment to create this collection of outstanding new residential properties”.
