Hi-Macs Alpine White Worktops

Edinburgh International Conference Centre is Scotland’s leading venue for conferences, conventions and exhibitions. Working with one of our washroom solutions customers, Lamart (Dundee) Ltd., MSF recently supplied a number of Corian Antarctica vanity countertops to the public washroom areas. In total there are 8 rooms with the Corian countertops installed including a massive 16 bowl island countertop.

Manufactured using 12mm Corian Antarctica the countertops are thermoformed around the undermounted bowl cut outs to allow water to flow back into the ceramic bowl to prevent excess standing water on  the tops. The countertops also feature 300mm tall coved backsplashes which are lit using colour change mood lighting.

As the rooftops made famous in the opening credits of Britain’s longest running soap opera, Chimney Pots Park is a location known to millions. However, long since the Coronation Street cameras had left this Victorian terraced housing development in Salford, Greater Manchester, one of the UK’s leading design-led construction companies, Urban Splash, turned 300 of these houses into contemporary, spacious developments and asked MSF to manufacture and install Hi-Macs worktops to complete the cutting edge kitchen design so important for a project such as this.

Urban Splash Developments are specialists in urban regeneration projects and Chimney Pots Park is no different. Each building retains their original Victorian façade but inside each house is a vision of contemporary living, typified by the topsy-turvy new arrangement of the homes: the kitchens, traditionally on the ground floor, are now on light, bright mezzanine levels. The flood of light into the kitchen area is assisted by the use of Hi-Macs Arctic White solid surface worktops installed by MSF. Some house types also featured Hi-Macs Island worktops, complete with seamless, chunky gable ends even Hi-Macs extractor hoods!

The Hi-Macs solid surface worktops are designed to appear 75mm thick with a practical and stylish watersafe front edge. The worktops also feature a stainless steel undermount sink, drainer grooves and full height, seamless, matching Hi-Macs splashback. MSF worked closely with the design team on this project to ensure that Hi-Macs solid surface was used to the best of its potential and the result is a truly unique, practical, seamless kitchen worktop installation – a design led Hi-Macs worktop solution for a design led project.

Chimney Pots Park development has won national media recognition and numerous awards, including the Housing Design Award, and MSF are proud to be involved with such a ground-breaking housing development.
