Housing one of the earliest examples of buildings of its type in Melbourne, the community at Albert Park Primary School recognized their responsibility to maintain facilities of such significance. Internal classrooms and office areas were exhibiting considerable paint breakdown, the effect of building movement with solid plaster cracking and a fading of previously used solvent based finishes.
Furlong Painting began with a rejuvenation of interior surfaces, addressing surface disrepair and establishing sound surfaces for a new paint finish. A transition from oil to water based finishes internally was incorporated to minimize the impact on air quality for the students and staff. Subsequent works have seen the external surfaces of the main building brought back to life with a consistent colour palette befitting a building of this character.
