Johnstone’s Trade’s comprehensive approach to colour has been used to create an inspiring and contemporary learning environment at a state-of-the-art school building in Leicester.
Crown Hills Community College, which accommodates 1,200 pupils aged from 11 to 16, wanted the colour scheme of its new building to reflect its corporate colours. Nottingham-based Concept Painting Contractors worked alongside Johnstone’s specialist colour consultants to tint thousands of litres of high performance paint to these exacting requirements, creating an environment perfect for learning.
Working intensively over an eight-month period, the team of 15 decorators used Johnstone’s Acrylic Durable Matt in a wide variety of colours to create striking feature walls and walkways.
Creative patterns and stencil work incorporating the school’s central values – Explore, Discover, Express and Reflect – combined with the colourful tones create a warm, welcoming atmosphere and inspiring space.
In addition to the use of Johnstone’s Acrylic Durable Matt, the team utilised products from the Steel and Cladding range to provide lasting protection to exposed steel beams in the main sports hall. Johnstone’s Flortred, meanwhile, was applied on floors in the plant rooms across the new building.
Keith Brown of Concept Painting Contractors said: “We’d had some excellent feedback from the team after using Johnstone’s Acrylic Durable Matt on a previous project, saying that it was very easy to apply and provided excellent coverage. The support provided by Johnstone’s in supplying the product in the exact colours we required was first class and played an integral role in the success of the project.”
Concept Painting Contractors’ impressive work secured them a place on the shortlist of the Health and Education category at the prestigious Johnstone’s Painter of the Year 2013 awards.
