Patrick Bishop, supervisor of the Redbridge Student Accommodation, said: “We have a three to four-week period from when the full-time students move out to when the summer school learners move in, and in that time we need to redecorate all of the rooms.

“We’ve been working with Crown Paints now for four years and their products are being used because we have such a quick turnaround to get the rooms ready.”
