GLIDDEN TRADE Is Top Of The Class At Mansfield Hospital

A range of Glidden Trade coatings has been used in the development of the new Retained Estates Education Centre at King’s Mill Hospital in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. Glidden Trade Durable Acrylic Eggshell and Glidden Trade Vinyl Matt were selected to help achieve a clean and professional finish, and importantly deliver a cost-effective solution for Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The new teaching provision was created to provide a state of the art, multi-disciplinary training and education facility for staff at the hospital. As such, a key requirement for the redecoration was to achieve a professional, high quality finish that offered excellent value for money. Lee Radford, Training and Development Manager at the Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, explains: “King’s Mill Hospital’s new Education Centre was built to provide top quality learning for our staff and local communities, so each and every element needed to mirror this high standard. We wanted the atmosphere and surroundings to be first class, as well as the education.”

To help achieve this objective, main contractor, Kier Marriott, specified Glidden Trade Durable Acrylic Eggshell for all of the interior walls and Glidden Trade Vinyl Matt for the ceilings.

Quick-drying Glidden Trade Durable Acrylic Eggshell provides a tough and washable mid-sheen finish, so was suitable for painting an environment, such as the Retained Estates Education Centre, that needs to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness. Painting contractor Swirlforce completed the work. Jason Smith, Contracts Manager, explained: “The majority of the walls were painted with Glidden Trade Durable Acrylic Eggshell as it is extremely durable and can be wiped down easily, so will help the centre stay looking clean and pristine for years to come. We applied the paint in a fresh off-white shade which really helped brighten up the interior. The product was also used in a warm golden shade to create striking feature walls on each floor of the building.”

To minimise surface imperfections on the training centre’s large ceilings, Swirlforce used Glidden Trade Vinyl Matt, a water-based emulsion that provides excellent coverage.
Commenting on the finished result, Lee Radford, from the Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, concludes: “The centre looks great - we have been rewarded with a top quality, professional environment that is conducive to learning, and truly supports our vision of becoming a regional centre of educational excellence."
