Project Name:

First Presbyterian Church, Londonderry


Church Road

Architect / Designer: 

Completion Date:




Armatile were commissioned to manufacture and install a new floor in the main body of First Presbyterian Church in Londonderry.  The new flooring had to be created to match the original floor being kept in the entrance porch.  The client was the church committee who were overseeing the renovation to ensure that their budgets were maintain while the integrity of the church’s heritage was retained.

Armatile’s reputation for heritage and conservation restoration projects led the client to contact its contracts manager Peter Rafferty.  Following discussions with the client Armatile produced samples that meet approval for colour, design and material.  Ultimately, Armatile was able to meets the needs of the client by fabricating a cost effective tile design in its factory in Armagh that blended fantastically well with the original floor.

One of the technical issues rising from installation was that the new floor was to be installed onto Plywood.  Armatile fitted the floor using high specification latex adhesives and grouts as advised by the technical support department from Mapei.

The ability and knowledge gained from previous projects provide us the capacity to fabricate unique detailed designs on request and to plan productions runs to suit large and small projects.

The client wanted a special crest made and installed.  Using a photograph of the emblem on the Church Flag, Armatile designed, programmed and manufactured a one off panel for this project.
