Hi Everyone,

Hope all’s well.
I’ve been asked to do 2000m2 of floor tiles on a shopping mall here. I haven’t done anything even near this size before.
As yet I don’t know what tiles, substrate etc. Will find out later this week.
Regarding movement joints it’s my understanding they should be laid every 8m is this correct.
Any other advice re setting out etc will be much appreciated.

Thanks

It will not be up to you to establish movement joints and set out!
As long as you know how to fit them all will be via instruction.
Projects of this nature are all pre planned and included in specifications.

Do you have employees to work for/with you . There may be a timescale with a penalty clause

No, I’m a one man band, if needed I could maybe get a few local tilers to help.. I’ll find out more tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up though
