We’re delighted to come back from the Painting and Decorating Association’s Premier Trophy Awards 2017 with a clutch of five Commended and Highly Commended accolades. Rewarding the highest standards of excellence in the industry, Ian Williams is a frequent winner and this year saw our painting teams being recognised in the Decorative, Highly Decorative and Commercial categories.
HIGHLY DECORATIVE: HIGHLY COMMENDED
The Ballroom Subscription Rooms, Stroud: We carried out full internal redecorations and repairs to the Ballroom including the flooring as this room had become tired over the years. With a mixture of traditional and modern décor including intricate golden leaves contracted against 21st Century sound and lighting equipment, we had to not only ensure colour matching but also offer advice to ensure modern equipment did not distract from the room’s features.
Brocastle Manor Care Home: provides care and support for over 80 disabled and older people. A key challenge was to address the issues arising from serious staining caused by dirt and algae to previously unpainted surfaces which we tackled during significant pre-paint repairs.
Crossland House, Virginia Water: This Grade I Listed building is the centre piece of Virginia Park, which was previously known as the Holloway Sanatorium. Since 2000 the site has been a prestigious gated residential development in the village of Virginia Water on the outskirts of London. We undertook external decorations of all previously painted timber and metal, including railings.
Drake Circus Shopping Mall, Plymouth: We carried out internal redecorations to the high ceilings within the shopping centre. A key consideration was the large curved wall area where we had to ensure that throughout our redecoration works, we maintained a ‘wet edge’ to result in the finished wall looking uniform.
Arnoldfield Court, Grantham: We delivered external redecoration and associated repair works to the Grade II listed period house, as well as the site’s converted stables. Developing a specification to suit the building’s era and maintain the historical feel of the site was important for both our client and residents. This included ensuring we matched original colours as closely as possible to reflect the styles of the 19th Century.
We are delighted that the skill and attention to detail of our professional painters and decorators has been recognised in this way. We make a significant investment in training and retaining a directly-employed workforce and awards such as this show the difference that makes to the quality of the work we deliver every day for customers.
