St Mary’s School Case Study

St Mary’s School Case Study

The ABK team was contacted by St Mary’s School to carry out some external decoration at an independent school in Gerrards Cross.

Project Requirements

We were asked to carry external painting and decorating to the front elevation of the schools main building during the summer school holidays.

Solution Implemented

We carried out a very high level of preparation work to ensure longevity and a high-quality finish. We used a resin-based product to repair any rotten timber and an anti-fungicidal wash on the walls and stonework. The masonry was finished using Dulux ICI Weathershield Smooth Masonry Paint tinted to Barley White. To complete the project we applied a protective dark green contrasting line to the base of the building.

Challenges Overcome

Working on School premises it is a necessity to have enhanced DBS disclosures.  All our decorators and management have up to date DBS.

Our painters were reliable, professional, very skilled and were backed up by the office staff and our Decorations Contract Manager who provided the specification for the work. We also provide a full range of trades for any building refurbishment work, please take a look at our building page.

Results

The client was extremely happy with the finished project. The images above are our genuine pictures of the project.

Client Testimonial
