GLIDDEN TRADE Refreshes School Life

Coatings from the Glidden Trade portfolio have been used in the creation of a new examination centre, and family and young people’s building at John Port School in Etwall, Derbyshire.

The project, which was joint funded by the school and Derbyshire County Council, was led by Frank Briggs, the school’s Project Manager together with construction company, GF Tomlinson, and professional painting and decorating contractor, Swirlforce. As a key objective was to create a stimulating and exciting learning environment within the available budget, Swirlforce turned to the experts at Glidden Trade.

Jason Smith, Contracts Manager at Swirlforce, explained: “A fresh coat of paint can be one of the easiest and most effective ways to refresh a learning environment, and it needn’t be expensive. Using Glidden Trade at John Port School provided a cost efficient way to smarten up the areas being refurbished, without compromising on a quality finish.”

When deciding which products to use, it was crucial for Swirlforce to select a paint system appropriate to the needs of the area. Glidden Trade Eggshell which provides great durability and coverage, was the ideal choice as it can withstand the effects of heavy traffic from staff and students, as well as the families using the children’s centre. Glidden Trade Vinyl Matt, which helps minimising surface imperfections, was used in lower traffic areas.

Jason concluded: “Glidden Trade was an ideal solution for John Port School as it allowed us to achieve the perfect balance between quality and value for money, resulting in a learning environment that looks terrific.”

Nicolas Guichard, Senior Brand Manager for Glidden Trade, added: “John Port School is a perfect example of how education establishments can achieve great results on a limited budget. As school building funds have been cut significantly, there are many lessons that can be learnt from this project on how to make the most of capital spend.”
