Altro and Optare winners in the CFJ 2019 Flooring Industry Awards

CFJ/CFA Awards Winner 2019  

On 14th June 2019, Altro and Optare were awarded the Best use of flooring in Transport at the CFJ/CFA Awards, hosted by Michael “Eddie the Eagle” Edwards.

The winning installation was the Optare Versa and Solo demonstration vehicles with a striking design by design agency Designs and Concepts using Altro custom design flooring.

Optare wanted to exhibit new designs for creating passenger appeal to showcase at EuroBus Expo 2018 for their single decker vehicles, Versa and Solo. The design had to be bold and striking, giving a premium feel, whilst also being practical and easy to clean. This was achieved through use of the Altro Logo and pre-cut flooring service to create contrasting tramlines down the length of the buses, in a cool blue for the Versa and sleek grey and lime green for the Solo. The judging panel, consisting of Simon Jackson, Fiona Bowman, Richard Renouf and Richard Catt, were impressed by the quality finish and innovative use of colour flashes on the vehicles.
