Do You Have A School or College Decorating Project We Can Help With?

Schools present particular challenges because the time available to redecorate is usually restricted, regular maintenance can fall behind and preparation work becomes more extensive. Typical tasks include removing thousands of staples and adhesive putty stains before we can begin to paint! However, utilising our efficient team we are always able to complete the work within the schedule allowed.

Renovation projects, especially those with tight timescales, often require us to work alongside other trades so that progress can be made in parallel. We are adept at doing this and pay particular attention to controlling any dust generated during preparation – not only for health and safety reasons but to avoid affecting the work of other specialists.

Our ability to manage projects to the highest quality and work within the required timeframe is why we have been asked to return to Schools in the Swindon area time and time again. This does mean that we are often booked months or a year in advance for large projects, so please reach out early for any projects to be carried out during school holidays.

Our Standards


Our experience and knowledge of working on listed buildings has been a major asset in our continuing work on schools and colleges, where we often work closely with principal construction contractors on renovations and improvements.

Historic college buildings present many challenges and unique work to be carried out. One commission required us to refurbish historical oak panelling, which was as old as the building itself, contrary to our normal practice, we were asked to preserve certain examples of graffiti as it had been carved by historically famous alumni!

Refinishing traditional cast iron column radiators is another common requirement. These look wonderful but can be difficult to paint in situ when space is limited. For one project where a significant number were involved, we worked with professional services to disconnect them before taking them to a specially constructed booth on site. Here we could treat any rust and prime the radiators by hand before spray-painting them. This method allowed us to achieve an excellent finish in a short time.
