Ian Williams Shortlisted for Johnstone’s Painter of the Year

Posted: 24th April 2019

Since the very beginning, painting and decorating has been fundamental to Ian Williams’ business. We may have come a long way since 1946 but being shortlisted for the Johnstone’s Painter of the Year competition is testament that our core services and values remain the same.  Out of the large number of projects put forward, Ian Williams is amongst 21 finalists shortlisted for this year’s competition for the restoration work carried out at Freemason’s Hall in Bristol. 

Previously a plain white interior in need of complex and sensitive refurbishment, the Freemason’s Hall underwent a total transformation into a vibrant, revitalised space as part of an eight-week renovation project.  The Ian Williams team undertook internal painting and repairs to the hallways, coffered ceilings, stairs, cast-iron railings, banisters, pillars and windows with architraves of the building.  High-level preparation works were required including filling cracks, repairs to large sections of wooden banisters and protecting marble and other ornate features to ensure the building’s heritage remained intact.

Ian Williams was heavily involved in the project from the outset, working closely with the client and their architects to fully understand the project’s requirements and specification prior to commencement, as well providing a colour matching service to help determine the final colour scheme.

The work carried out at Freemason’s Hall is testament to the skill of our experienced directly-employed team when it comes to undertaking heritage works and ensuring the complex elements are delivered to a high standard. 

We’re looking forward to attending the awards ceremony on 11th May.
