The Dulux Trade Smarter Spaces team have recently helped to renovate a West Midlands sports facility with a paint scheme to enhance the performance and aesthetics.

Screen Shot 2018-01-24 at 14.30.22The Academy Transformation Trust appointed S & C Painting Services Ltd to apply the paint scheme to the Pool Hayes Academy – a mixed secondary school and sixth form college.

Gerard McGrory, Regional Estate Manager at the Academy Transformation Trust said: “The Smarter Spaces team presented us with a variety of schemes and we held a consultation with Pool Hayes Academy to assess the options.”

Screen Shot 2018-01-24 at 14.30.06The gym and sports hall had previously been fairly monochromatic. Therefore, the Smarter Spaces team suggested a neutral, mature palette for the walls, with brighter, vibrant reds and yellows for the ceiling beams and roof struts. 

Colin McDermid, Commercial Colour Consultant at Dulux Trade explained: “The head of the P.E. department was keen to make her space stand out from the rest of the school with a vibrant colour scheme suited to the age group of 12-18 years old. I feel that the final scheme successfully balanced the need for performance as well as contemporary aesthetics.”
