Products from Johnstone’s market-leading Ecological Solutions range have ensured the new £24million Oasis Academy MediaCityUK in Salford is provided with a sustainable and durable finish for years to come.

The ambitious new academy, which is located in the burgeoning Salford Quays area of the city, provides first-class facilities for all subjects on the National Curriculum as well state-of-the-art radio and TV production studios.
 
The Academy contains a wide variety of contrasting substrates, including new plastered and exposed concrete, softwood, metalwork, MDF and concrete floors, ensuring products from far and wide across the Johnstone’s product portfolio were utilised to give the facilities an impressive finish.
 
Johnstone’s Acrylic Durable Matt provided the new plaster and exposed concrete walls in high traffic areas with a durable and lasting finish, with Dry Lining Paint being used for the ceilings, while the exposed softwood was primed with Johnstone’s Acrylic Primer Undercoat and then finished with the Acrylic Satin, which was also applied to the MDF.
 
For a project of this scale, it was imperative that the right products were specified at the outset to ensure the decorative work could be undertaken swiftly and the school could open its doors on time for the new term. The experience of the Johnstone’s specification team provided a comprehensive service to staff from main contractor Laing O’Rourke, architect Aedas and decorating contractor A.S. Broadley to ensure they were provided with all the information and support they needed throughout the project.
 
David Haselgrove from Aedas Architects said: “I cannot fault the support given by the Johnstone’s specification team. They were extremely pro-active, helping to put together specifications and providing paint samples quickly allowing us to sign off samples with the Academy in a constricted timeframe. The fact that the products specified were from the Ecological Solutions range provided me with the confidence that the suite of paints specified for this project were of the highest standard. I would have no hesitation in specifying Johnstone’s products again in the future.”
 
The 14 products that make up Johnstone’s Ecological Solutions range have fast become the first choice for specifiers and architects looking to specify an environmentally friendly paint product since the range received the coveted EU Ecolabel accreditation two years ago. Only the products which are kindest to the environment are entitled to carry the EU Ecolabel. These stringent rules are agreed at European level and follow wide consultation with experts and certification and the label itself is only awarded after verification that the product meets the rigorous environmental and performance standards.
