Christ the Servant King Church – Case Study

Internal Decorations to CSK church

CSK: Christ the Servant King Church located in Booker, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

Project Requirements

Internal decoration to various areas of the church in two phases.  We provided the client with a ‘shopping list’ (a quotation for each individual room/area).  The client then selected which areas to do within each phase working around the churches commitments. 

Solution Implemented

We carried out Phase 1 (6 areas) we were able to give a multi-room discount as these were all carried out at the same time. A good quality Durable Matt emulsion was used in all the areas as this can be wiped clean.  The woodwork was painted using Satinwood.

Challenges Overcome

We had a small window to get the work done due to services and hired room areas with bookings, our decorators took up the challenge and Phase 1 was completed on time and to our high standards.

Results

The client was really pleased with the painting and we have since completed Phase 2. On this page, you will find some imagery relating to works completed on the project.

Ashfold School – Case Study

External Decorations to Ashfold School

Ashfold School in the pretty village of Dorton, located in the Aylesbury Vale district of Buckinghamshire.

Project Requirements

External decorations to the windows and guttering of side elevations to main entrance building.

Solution Implemented

Using our own Cherry Picker for access to the higher-level work we carried out woodwork resin repairs to the window sashes, frames and entrance doors and painted in ICI Dulux Weathershield undercoat and gloss.  The guttering was also prepared and re-painted at the same time.

Challenges Overcome

This project ended up being a larger job than first thought due to the extent of the woodwork repairs that were uncovered once work had started.  The work could only be carried out during the summer school holiday period and on dry days. We put additional painters on-site and worked longer days to enable the work to be completed on time.  Altogether we repaired 20 window sashes and frames.

Results

The school were extremely pleased that we managed to save these original wooden sash windows. On this page, you will find some imagery relating to works completed on the project.

Adam Continuity Case Study

Adam Continuity – Cladding Case Study

The ABK team was contacted by Adam Continuity in Basingstoke to carry out some external painting refurbishment works.

Project Requirements

The main focus of the works was the repainting of the external cladding to the business unit using spray guns via cherry pickers.

Solution Implemented

We used a specialist paint called Hi Build Vinyl, it is a paint especially for steel and metalwork such as storage containers, skips and waste compactors and can be sprayed on.

Challenges Overcome

A lot of preparation work was involved in this project removing the flaking paint and sanding back. It was slightly more difficult due to the height and having to move the cherry pickers for the different sections.

Results

Google Testimonial

“ABK have just completed a large painting and decorating and building work project at our hotel, Chequers Inn near Wooburn Green.  I found all the workers to be extremely reliable and friendly, the effort that was taken to ensure all working areas were left clean and tidy (which included Ground Floor, First Floor, Bar, Reception and Toilets) was much appreciated as this helped us to continue our business with minimal disruption. We are pleased with the standard of work, advice on paint types and colours to achieve the overall finish and we are delighted with the hotel’s new image. I would highly recommend ABK for any painting and decorating and building works”.

St Augustines Church Case Study

St Augustine’s Church

The ABK team was contacted by St Augustines Church on Amersham Hill in High Wycombe to carry out some internal decorating refurbishment works.

Project Requirements

The main focus of the works was the Decoration of the Sacristy Room and the Main Entrance Porch. The church wanted to brighten these communal areas up for its guests.

Solution Implemented

We used Dulux Vinyl Matt for the walls and ceiling and Dulux Metalshield also in Sandsdown for all of the metalwork.

We used Dulux Vinyl Matt colour ‘Swansdown’ for the ceilings and walls. We also used Dulux Metalshield for all of the metalwork throughout the main church areas.

Challenges Overcome

Due to the height, scaffold towers were used. We had to rearrange work on one of the days as the church had a funeral, the day before this we made sure that everything was put away discreetly and was clean.

Results

Google Testimonial

“In the repainting of the interior of St Augustine’s Church, I was very pleased with ABK at every stage of the work. Before the quotation was made they met with me to discuss details of the project and decide how various things would work out in practice and to ensure I was satisfied.

The work began on time and the workers were not only hard-working (finishing the job in around three-quarters of the time given as the original estimate) but also friendly and very accommodating. When we had to call for a break in the work because of a funeral they were meticulous about clearing everything away and out of sight”.

Greenhill Gate Flats Case Study

Greenhill Gate Flats

Three blocks of residential apartments on Green Hill, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire which overlook the lovely Hughenden Park.

Project Requirements

We carried full internal decorations to seven staircases and landings across all three blocks.  We also carried out some building repairs to the external three blocks before painting them.

Solution Implemented

Our highly skilled decorators applied ICI Dulux Contract Matt and Vinyl Matt emulsions to the ceilings and walls. Then applied ICI Dulux Undercoat and Gloss to the skirtings, loft hatches and the stringer boards on the staircases and to finish we applied a stain varnish on the staircase handrails.

On the external parts of the building, our builders carried out some high-level repairs before our decorators prepared and painted all three blocks in ICI Dulux Weathershield Masonry paint.

From the scaffold, we repointed high-level brickwork as required and the woodwork repairs were carried out using the Repair Care System, a resin-based product that gives longevity and then finished off with high-quality external paint.  We carried out the painting of the walls in Sandtex Smooth, Cornish Cream at the client’s request.

Challenges Overcome

As these flats are built on the side of a hill, we arranged for scaffolding, we used our own cherry picker where we could but needed to hire in specialist access lifts to be able to reach some areas due to the incline.

Roald Dahl Museum Case Study

Roald Dahl Museum

The ABK team was contacted by the Roald Dahl Museum in Great Missenden in order to carry out Internal decorating refurbishments. A nice local project for a business celebrating one of the worlds most famous authors.

Project Requirements

Complete refurbishment of the upper floors of the South Wing of Grade 11 Listed Building. We then carried out additional refurbishment to other areas 6 months later.

Solution Implemented

We were provided with a detailed specification for the work, as this included various trades, we called upon our carpenter/joiner, flooring experts, plumbers, electricians and painters.

Challenges Overcome

As this was a large project, our skilled Contracts Manager managed the full refurbishment and scheduled in the trades as they were required so the project ran smoothly, finished ahead of schedule and within budget.

Results

A very happy client, unfortunately, the museum had a serious flood unrelated to the works we carried out, meaning some of the areas we refurbished had to be done again.

Google Testimonial

“We have worked with ABK on several occasions and the last project was the refurbishment of the upper floors of the South Wing of our Grade II listed building. The project was to convert existing office space into an open plan area for picnic lunches as well as extending a meeting room to become a classroom/workshop room and refurbishing a staff room and loo.

The work involved demolishing some internal stud walls, installing new walls and floor to ceiling cupboards, new lighting and flooring as well as removing old kitchens and replacing them with new. All of this work was completed while the Museum was open for business. Access to the site was limited for delivery and removal of goods and waste.

There were no issues at all about the delivery and removal of waste and all work was carried out with little or no disruption to the day to day running of the Museum.
The project was planned well and all trades worked well together. The workmen were all extremely professional and fulfilled the brief on time, within budget and to our complete satisfaction. We would have no hesitation in recommending ABK for building projects and, in fact, are about to embark on another project with them for phase two of the development”

Legoland Case Study

Legoland, Windsor

The ABK team was contacted by Legoland Windsor in order to carry out External decorating refurbishments to one of their attractions, namely the Balloon Ride. This was a great project for the team, revitalising a popular attraction at the park.

Project Requirements

To clean and paint all 6 of balloons on this ride using a fungicidal wash and specified Zinsser exterior paint products.

Solution Implemented

The actual balloons were very big so we arranged for a specialist access moveable plant to reach over the tops of the balloons and our towers to access the sides.

Challenges Overcome

The weather is always a challenge with exterior decorating projects, luckily for our decorators, the weather stayed fine and all works were able to be completed on time and within the parks, maintenance shut down period.

Results

We really enjoy working at Legoland, it was a different type of project but one that is ideal for our highly experienced painters. We are now scheduling works in for the large and smaller roller coasters, this would take the whole winter shutdown period to complete using specialist Tor coating paints, specified via there rep/specifier Darren Rothwell.
