Products from Johnstone’s Ecological Solutions range have ensured the new £24million Oasis Academy MediaCityUK in Salford is provided with a sustainable and durable finish for years to come, including heavy traffic areas such as the concrete floors.
The Academy contains a wide variety of contrasting substrates, including new plastered and exposed concrete, softwood, metalwork, MDF and concrete floors, ensuring products from far and wide across the Johnstone’s product portfolio were used to give the facilities an impressive finish.
For a project of this scale, it was important that the correct products were specified at the outset to ensure the decorative work could be undertaken swiftly and the school could open its doors on time for the new term. The experience of the Johnstone’s specification team provided a comprehensive service to staff from main contractor Laing O’Rourke, architect Aedas, concrete flooring contractors and decorating contractor AS Broadley to ensure they were provided with all the information and support they needed throughout the project.
The archietects, Aedas, are reported pleased with the support given by the Johnstone’s specification team. The contractors were pro-active, helping to put together specifications and providing paint samples for all the areas, including the concrete floors, quickly allowing sign off with the Academy in a constricted timeframe. The products specified were from the Ecological Solutions range.
