Dong Energy Operations and Maintenance Facility

GR PAINTERS & DECORATORS LTD secured the contract to provide decorations for the new OMF Facility for Dong Energy, Ramsey Way, Barrow in Furness.

Working alongside Thomas Armstrong Construction, this high specification contract brought new challenges for our team. The client had specified a superior finish to that of the standard M60 Painting/Clear Finishing guidelines.

To achieve the desired finish our team meticulously prepped all newly plastered walls and ceilings and protected all flooring, glass, electrical sockets and curtain framework with drop sheets of Polyurethane and masking paper before applying a mist coat. Further detailed filling and preparation was then carried out before a further application of two coats of Johnstone’s Flat Matt Emulsion via Airless Spray which resulted in a superior finish. Spray applications not only provided a higher finish, it diminished the labour time to complete the contract by over a 30%

All block work to both warehouse areas received Eggshell Emulsion paint using the same application methods and provided the same high spec results.
Further work was carried out to the structural steelwork inside the building using Johnstone’s Steel & Clad paint.

GR Painters would like to thank Thomas Armstrong Construction Ltd for the opportunity to assist in delivering a high specification building to Dong Energy and look forward to securing similar contracts in the future.
