Location: London
Project Awarded By: Graham Construction
Specialist Paints Used: Dulux Weathershield Smooth Masonry Paint
Project Duration: 6 Months

Coopers Road is situated just off Old Kent Road in central London and was recently the location for the construction of 52 flats and 3 houses. As part of the work, BMA were awarded the contract by Graham Construction to carry out both internal and external decorating for the entire project.

The unrealistic logistics of travelling back and forth to London meant it was necessary for our team to travel down from Norwich – staying over throughout the week. All of the planning for this was carried out by our dedicated team and allowed our decorating operatives to concentrate fully on the job in hand.

In recent years there has been a shift away from the use of magnolia as a base colour. For the internal elements of the project – walls, ceiling and woodwork – we were therefore asked to decorate throughout in a white finished.

For the exterior walkway ceilings, we used specialist Dulux masonry paints to offer protection against the elements. These paints are specially created to limit the growth of mould and ensure that masonry looks cleaner for longer. Within 30 minutes of application, they are resistant to shower and will offer 15 years of protection against all weather conditions.

All of the work for this project was overseen by our dedicated site manager. Where possible we like to ensure that the same person is on-site throughout the project. This allows us to build up a good working relationship with the project manager and develop a better understanding of their requirements and how they work.

On this occasion the project manager was extremely happy with the standard of our work and informed us he would be happy to work with BMA again on future projects.
