Client Needs

Built in 1930, Box Hill High School’s original building is a significant landmark to the local community. With such prominence in the streetscape not only the school community but the broader public are daily witnesses to its grandeur.

Exhibiting years of heavily weathered surfaces, both aesthetic and structural needs were apparent. An effective colour scheme was required that would bridge the divide between being true to a building of such character but also using a contemporary palette that would stand the test of time.

Painting Strategy

Furlong Painting began with a series of building repairs to ensure sound substrates, prior to considerable preparation of surfaces to ready for their new lease of life. 

To minimise disruption to the school routine, the painters were sensitive to working in and around a working school environment. High traffic areas were addressed out of school hours, whilst appropriate management techniques were employed that allowed the school community to safely continue with their daily routine.

Only premium finishes were used which would offer a longevity of colour compared with some previous oil based coatings.

The landmark has once again regained its ‘awe inspiring’ appeal.
