Crown Paints has recently helped transform the University of Worcester’s Students’ Union cafe with contrasting greys and teal colours.
The Pear Tree cafe on the St John’s Campus was in need of a bright refresh to encourage more people to use the Students’ Union.Capital Projects Procurement Officer at the University of Worcester, Joe Stock comments: “We met Crown Paints at a ‘Find it in Worcester’ event and gave them the opportunity to develop a specification. Crown Paints worked alongside out Students’ Union representatives to choose a new colour scheme.”
Hankinson Painting Contractors carried out the work, which took three weeks to complete.
Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt was used in teal on the feature wall and in grey on the others, whilst the metal staircase was decorated with dark grey Crown Trade Fastflow Quick Dry Gloss.
The Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt is suitable for spaces with high levels of traffic as they can be easily cleaned and returned to a ‘as new’ condition.
Louise Hinett, Specification Sales Manager at Crown Paints, said: “The cafe remained open throughout the redecoration, so Crown Trade Fastflow Quick Dry Gloss seemed like the perfect product for the metal staircase.
“It’s fast drying and has a low odour so it meant that when people came in to eat their lunch their comfort was assured.”
The Crown Trade Fastflow Gloss System features advanced water-based technology, which means the product feels like a traditional solvent-based gloss, but is quick drying with the benefit of low odour.
The system has been manufactured in line with Crown’s renowned Breatheasy formulation, which means it is 99% solvent free.Sharon Smith, Crown Paints Trade Communications Manager, said: “Due to the fast drying qualities of Crown Trade Fastflow two coats can be applied in one day, which is a major advantage for both public and private sector specification projects.
“We’ve also expanded the range this year with the introduction of Crown Trade Fastflow Quick Dry Satin, which again performs as a solvent based product with the benefits of being water-based.”
