Painting a bright future with Bournemouth University
We’ve secured a prestigious agreement with Bournemouth University which will see products from across our range used for future new build and refurbishment projects.
As the University’s sole supplier of paints and specialist coatings, our specification team has worked closely with the Bournemouth University’s facilities department to devise a bespoke paint package and colour scheme that will provide long term cost benefits and reduce ongoing maintenance requirements.
The chosen paint specification, which includes our high performance Clean Extreme Stain Resistant Scrubbable Matt and Acrylic Eggshell, and water-based Fastflow Quick Dry Gloss, will now form part of the University’s official Design Standards Manual.
Our new partnership with Bournemouth University has already gotten off to a flying start with the announcement of two major new build projects. The painting work is already underway on Poole Gateway Building, a new state of the art teaching facility located on the University’s Talbot campus. Our paints will also be used on the Bournemouth Gateway building, which will become the new home of the University’s Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, as well as a new student accommodation scheme that will be designed and built on the same campus.
As well as building a positive working relationship with Bournemouth University, the new solus agreement has also enabled us to develop stronger links with the local community. Most recently, our Crown Decorating Centre in Poole donated paint and sundries products to the Stable Family Home Trust in Ringwood, which provides living and day care support for young adults with learning disabilities. The supplies were used to decorate the Trust’s drama room.
We’re delighted to have formalised our working relationship with Bournemouth University and that we’ve been chosen as its sole paint supplier. Going forward we’ll be providing valuable specification and colour scheming advice, as well as technical support and product advice.
