Following in the footsteps of highly successful sister publication – The Specifier’s Guide to Tile & Stone – the new flooring-focused Guide includes commentary from the most prominent names in the industry, as well as technical analysis and inspirational imagery – from global case study references to exploded material make-ups. Its official launch in London’s design district included a presentation from Fiona Bowman MBA CBIFM, FCMI Senior Facilities Management Consultant. Fiona praised the new resource for its “compelling, substantive, clear and concise content; an invaluable guide for the complex specification process,” – while Simon Jackson, Design Consultant and sjjdc founder described it as an “expert at your elbow”.

David Strydom, editor of CFJ added,

“The Specifier’s Guide to Flooring is the must-have publication for every architect, designer, FM and specifier from Land’s End to John ‘o Groats. Never before has there been such a comprehensive guide to all aspects of an installation, and we predict that it will become the flooring handbook for everybody involved in installations.”

Echoing these sentiments, John Heath, Kick-Start Publishing’s CEO added,

“We’re proud to boast truly ground-breaking publications. CFJ has always been the undisputed voice of the industry, and now, in that tradition, The Specifier’s Guide to Flooring will light the way for those seeking inspiration for their flooring requirements.”
