Wildgoose Rural Training, Worcester

Retaining the feel of nature at care farm

Altro Wood adhesive-free

Issue

Wildgoose Rural Training is a care farm for adults and young people based in the heart of Worcestershire. Occupying a 42-acre site comprising a 36-acre nature reserve and 6-acre care farm, Wildgoose Rural Training offers students the chance to learn about horticulture, conservation, farming, arts and crafts, cooking, mechanics, and animal care, connecting them with the outdoors, nature, and all of the goodness that it brings.

Approach

The farm has two new log cabins - a visitors’ centre and an education centre - both in daily use. Activities carried out in the centres include computer work, arts, and crafts, cooking and dining so the areas would need to stand up to the demands of a lot of muddy boots. They required a floor that was durable, easy to clean, had a welcoming appearance and provided slip resistance.

Solution

Altro Wood adhesive-free was installed providing a safe, durable and decorative solution for the busy spaces. Reducing the carriage of sound, with a 10-year guarantee and the Altro one in a million slip-resistance reassurance, Altro Wood adhesive-free also offers high levels of comfort underfoot for the visitors and staff using the areas. Ben Showan from Wildgoose Rural Training said, “As the centre is also the gateway to the nature reserve, it could not be out of use for a long period of time, so a quick installation was a key priority. The installation really was effortless!”

Altro Wood adhesive-free creates maximum impact with minimum downtime. With 18 shade choices, 14dB sound reduction, a 10-year guarantee and our Altro one in a million slip-resistance reassurance, Altro Wood adhesive-free offers high levels of comfort underfoot providing a safe, durable and decorative solution for busy spaces.

Testimonials

We wanted a biophilic, durable design, in keeping with the rustic theme of the centre, connecting it with the outside, and replicating the feel of wooden floorboards.

We particularly liked the fact that Altro Wood adhesive-free can be cleaned really easily, it comes up looking lovely.
