This method statement outlines the procedures for the installation of terrazzo tiles and skirting. Terrazzo flooring is a durable and attractive flooring option that requires careful preparation and precise installation.
The statement covers the preparation of terrazzo stone, application of terrazzo marble, and cleaning and protection of the finished surface.
Materials for Application
- Ordinary Portland Cement.
- Pre-cast Terrazzo.
- Sealer (specified).
Terrazzo Stone Preparation
- Examine the areas designated for terrazzo tile installation to ensure they meet compliance and tolerances required for proper installation.
- Implement dust control measures to prevent air pollution and protect other work areas from dust generated during grinding operations.
Application of Terrazzo Marble
- Set the layout for terrazzo tiles based on the building’s geometry and design.
- Arrange terrazzo tiles continuously, starting from the center line to achieve symmetry.
- Ensure that 100% of the surface underneath the tiles is covered with mortar to create a strong bond with the substrate and eliminate hollow sounds when tapped.
- Cutting Tiles
- Use an electric saw to cut terrazzo tiles to exact dimensions.
- Fill the joints between tiles with the specified sealer to create a seamless and uniform appearance.
- During the installation process, promptly clean the tile surfaces from any mortar or grout splashes to maintain a neat and polished condition.
- Limit surface variations from the level indicated in the drawings to a maximum of 3mm to ensure a smooth and uniform appearance.
Project Method Statement for Cleaning and Protection
- Wash the terrazzo surfaces with a suitable cleaner to remove any splashes of mortar and sealer.
- Rinse the surfaces with water and allow them to dry thoroughly.
- Ensure that the area with terrazzo tiles and skirting is protected from damage, especially the exposed corners, to maintain the integrity and appearance of the finished terrazzo flooring.
