Client: Centennial House
Our client, Freemasons Homes for the Aged, recognized the internal and external breakdown of coatings at this residence and the impact this was having on the appeal of the facility.
Externally a once off rejuvenation project was undertaken to renew current paint finishes on previously painted surfaces and use specialist repair / coating techniques to previously rendered lower and upper wall areas. To ensure safe access to areas at height, appropriate elevated access equipment and roof harnessing was utilised.
Internally, a longer term paint maintenance process was devised and implemented. This included an initial repainting to previously painted surfaces to return them to a high standard of finish. At annual intervals a paint maintenance will be carried out to most worn areas to ensure the facility continues to project a fresh and clean environment, with all costs amortised across the life of the programme.
Making sure the facility continued to provide a safe and warm environment, the staging of these works was critical, as was the selection of appropriately skilled painters (in both painting skill and character). ?
A contemporary colour scheme was implemented with the result being a more modern and appealing residential facility.
