Project description

The external redecoration of the 3 buildings that make up the Business School was mostly carried out from mobile, elevated working platforms, with the clock tower requiring an extra-large boom to gain access. Careful consideration had to be given to the occupants of the offices as well as the students and general public on the pavements surrounding the premises. Some weekend work was carried out to alleviate traffic congestion.


The specification was a Dulux Weathershield paint specification, including epoxy repairs to all the timber window cills which were in a poor state of repair, before work started.
