Crown Paints has received top marks from a West Midlands-based university after transforming their Students’ Union café by adding a vibrant new colour palette. The Pear Tree Café, in the heart of the University of Worcester’s St John's Campus, has been given a new lease of life.
Contrasting greys and a teal colour have been used to refresh the space, which Joe Stock – Capital Projects Procurement Officer at the University of Worcester – says had become tired. Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt has been used on the walls, with a teal colour being applied to the feature wall and a complimentary grey on the others, whilst the metal staircase was decorated with dark grey Crown Trade Fastflow Quick Dry Gloss.
Mr Stock said:"The old colours were quite dark so we wanted to give it a refresh and encourage more people to use the Students’ Union building during the day. “We met Crown Paints at a ‘Find it in Worcester’ event and gave them the opportunity to develop a specification. “Crown Paints worked alongside our Students’ Union representatives to choose a new colour scheme and it looks really good. “We’re glad we’ve used Crown Paints on this project.”
Hankinson Painting Contractors carried out the work, which took three weeks to complete. Louise Hinett, Specification Sales Manager at Crown Paints, said: “We specified Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt because of the high-level of traffic that comes through the café. “It’s fast drying and has a low odour so it meant that when people came into eat their lunch their comfort was assured.”
