Johnstone’s proves to be the perfect match

The first-class colour matching service and product specification delivered by Johnstone’s has ensured that the decoration of Brangwyn Hall’s intricate ceiling has been completed to stunning effect.

Brangwyn Hall – located within the Swansea Guildhall – is one of the city’s key cultural assets and has played host to some of the biggest names in music since its inauguration in 1934. With the hall beginning to show its age over the past few years, a decision was made to undertake a comprehensive refurbishment in order to preserve it for future generations to enjoy.

QDL Contractors Ltd, working under main contractors John Weaver Construction, was tasked with completing the redecoration of the hall’s impressive ceiling in just six weeks and worked in close partnership with Johnstone’s to deliver an impressive project.

Remaining faithful to the building’s rich heritage was a vital consideration during the project, which is why Johnstone’s expertise in colour matching was so important.  Swatches of the existing paintwork were accurately matched by the Johnstone’s Decorating Centre team in Cardiff using the state-of-the-art colour tinting machine, to ensure the ceiling retained its elegance.

In addition, Johnstone’s high performance Ecological Solutions Covaplus Vinyl Matt was trusted to deliver a great finish that will be resistant to fading and yellowing for years to come.

Chris Corely, contracts manager at QDL Contractors Ltd, said: “The colour matching service provided by Johnstone’s was excellent on this project. It was efficient and proved to be a perfect match for the coating that was previously on the ceiling. In addition, the Covaplus Vinyl Matt is a high performance emulsion that was exactly what we needed for a job like this. We had to work to a tight timescale on this project so the excellent service provided by Johnstone’s made the job run exceptionally smoothly.”
