Flooring Project Highlights


Focus on Quality Workmanship
We liaised with the client and other trades to coordinate our works for optimal floor access. This ensured the installation of a substantial floor area in one go (rather than working on small sections at a time) so that we could achieve the highest possible quality of finish.
Client Satisfaction
The end client (Countdown) was very happy with the finished work and provided the following testimonial.


“Hills has been a long-term supplier and installer of commercial flooring to Progressive Enterprises. I have personally had close associations with them for more than 15 years.

In that time, Hills has undertaken numerous vinyl flooring installations in both new and refurbished supermarkets in our principal brands (Countdown and previously Foodtown/Woolworths). They have provided an outstanding level of dedication and commitment, responding to unrealistic challenges in unreasonable time frames.

Hills has been a source of reliable guidance and assistance on specialist matters, which has often proven to be prudent and commercially advantageous. It is reassuring to know that there are people on the end of the phone who can and will help.

It is clear that Hills offers a competitive solution by virtue of the number of projects secured with ourselves under very hard-fought conditions. There is comfort in the knowledge that the result will always be on time and to the highest of standards.”
