Hylands House, UK

The rescued grade II listed building was constructed in 1730 and is now owned by Chelmsford City Council.  It was once owned by Sir Daniel Gooch who accompanied Sir Ernest Shakelton on the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition in 1914 only to return prematurely to supervise the conversion of the house into a temporary hospital on the outbreak of World War 1.

The house today is open to the public and hosts events including weddings, award ceremonies and general functions.  In November 2013 the new event marquee was completed including over 500m2 of BOEN  23mm 2-Strip oak hardwood floor, which was installed over the BOEN Elevation cradle levelling system by UK contractor PICA Floorings Ltd on behalf of main contractors TJ Evers and the City Council.
