EDITORIAL COMMENT Corporate & Retail Flooring Currently the flooring requirements for corporate and retail buildings have so much in common – the need for good-looking floors that meet the company image, requirements for minimum maintenance, and the need to last forever (under sometimes abnormal usage) have become the norm! Access Flooring & Cable Management This feature on Access Flooring & Cable Management Systems provides an increasingly important annual update on the products and services available to meet the changing needs of clients striving to keep ahead of the game in the IT sector. In this issue we talk to the people that are involved. Exterior Flooring & Paving Our annual feature on Exterior Flooring & Paving always confirms what a competitive sector this is with so many options, products and systems available. In this issue we look at the latest developments in ‘outdoor flooring’ products.

Cement & Concrete Concrete floors are now universally used in a wide range of applications from industrial spaces to high- quality floors in upmarket residences and entertainment areas. They can be colour-impregnated, stained, provided with a decorative layer, painted, polished, etched, stamped and used in combination with most other flooring materials to good effect – and in truly hardworking areas they can be provided with dry-shake hardener applications or installed with a variety of reinforcing materials. Achieving results!
