CROWN PAINTS Make The Grade At Shrewsbury College

A partnership approach between Shrewsbury College of Arts and Technology and Crown Paints has seen colour come to life across the Shropshire education facility.

The Crown Paints Colour Service team has worked with the College’s students and staff to create a bright and inspiring centre, creating a welcoming and appealing environment to staff, students and visitors alike.

Crown Trade’s Timonox Flame Retardant Coatings system and Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt have been used throughout the College – creating a safe and durable finish on campus.

More than 30 different colour schemes have been introduced using both systems.

The project began as a repaint of the reception and corridors in the main building.

From there, the partnership has developed and work is now being carried out within classrooms and corridor areas of the College’s main building on London Road and the neighbouring new Technology Building.

Jemma Saunders, Crown Paint’s Colour Consultant, visited the College and after a careful review of the facilities helped identify a series of schemes that would suit - with a brief to create a stimulating, vibrant environment.

Her concepts, communicated in face-to-face consultations and with Computer Generated Imagery, were then put to the students on feedback forms, and the favourite schemes were selected.

Each area of the College now has an individual look for each of the subject areas taught on-site, helping to create important identities across the facility.

Dean Howe, Estates Supervisor at Shrewsbury College, said: “The colours Jemma provided were fantastic and they are really what we were looking for in terms of creating the right environment and atmosphere.

“We wanted to appeal to the students, motivate, stimulate and be vibrant – and Crown Paints has supplied us with colours that do just that.”

Crown Paints continues to lead the way in colour forecasting and the Colour Service is designed to bring to life projects and share the company’s expertise with clients to ensure the best possible outcome for projects.

Vernon Kinrade, Crown Paints’ Specification Sector Support Manager, said: “Colour psychology plays an important role in the creation of an ideal environment in the education sector and our experts bring to life ideas that make a positive impact.

“This project showed how Crown Paints’ Colour Service can help signpost clients to certain ideas and concepts and help them make informed choices.

“Aside from colour, it is important that high quality paint is selected to ensure a longer-lasting result, and the school’s specification of Crown Trade Timonox and Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt ensures a fit-for-purpose system has been achieved at the College.”

As part of the specification process, Crown Paints’ Sustainable Smart Maintenance programme has been introduced on site, overseen by Crown Paints’ Technical Specification Consultant Bob Brankin.

Streamlining asset management programmes, Sustainable Smart Maintenance enables maintenance budgets to be optimised, with intervals between applications extended by the carefully tailored specification of Crown Paints’ products – based on an analysis of the environment and site surveys.

This personal approach – overseen by Crown Paints specification team – ensures paints are specified which represent Best Value.

As well as reducing whole life costs, Sustainable Smart Maintenance reduces environmental impact – by driving forward reductions in the amount of paint needed in the long-term, through extended maintenance cycles.
