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.

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.”

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.”
