Matt Oiled planks at the RWA

Our Matt Oiled Bristol Tectonic® oak planks created a beautiful, hardwearing floor at Bristol’s Royal West of England Academy (RWA).

The Prime-grade 130mm-wide engineered oak planks were installed diagonally in the RWA’s newly refurbished exhibition space.

The Grade II* listed building is Bristol’s oldest public art gallery, built in 1858, and it reopened in May 2022 following a £4.1m restoration project.
