Solid surface specialist, Versital UK Ltd, has hand-made three distinctive bar tops for two new food outlets within the Blackpool Pleasure Beach leisure complex.
The work was commissioned by leisure interior design and construction expert Ark Construction and included a huge seamless sweep of Versital granite finish in “Payette” which curved to form a counter top 22 metres long! Ark Construction prides itself on the bespoke nature of its design projects seen in numerous pubs and leisure clubs across the UK and uses Versital because, being non-fabricated, it can be made to virtually any size, shape and colour.
Tom Logan, senior architect at Ark Construction said:
“Since discovering Versital a few years ago I use nothing else. We are known in the leisure and brewing industry for our imaginative, avant-garde approach to interior design and therefore need to work with materials that can turn our ideas into reality. Versital is so flexible and the quality, finish and fitting are spot on. Plus I find it slightly cheaper than other solid surface material on the market.
And of course with natural materials such as granite or stone you can’t always get the shape you want. Additionally, it can take weeks for the order to arrive. However, with Versital you can get it hand-made to order almost immediately, it looks the real deal and keeps looking as good as when we first install it and our clients love it which is the main thing!”
