Westfield Stratford City
Lucas secured a number of painting packages at Westfield Stratford City, Europe’s largest urban shopping centre and a gateway to London’s Olympic Park. The centre has been developed by Westfield which became a new and valued client of the Lucas UK Group. We started on the huge site with a specialist package to provide protective coatings for the steelworks, applying MSP or Multi Surface Paint from our Muralplast range of sustainable surface treatments. The work expanded to the protection and decoration of all the exposed sheet piling. We further extended our operations on site to decorate all the back of house areas including service corridors and delivery routes. The Lucas team also applied specialist floor resins to car parks and painted safety markings for what are known as wayfinding routes through the backroom areas. We were then awarded an unexpected and very urgent task of painting no less than 11.5 kilometres of curbs around the multiple levels of car parking and ramps throughout the site with specialist yellow safety road marking paint. We pulled out all the stops to complete this just in time for the opening of the Centre with the magnificent help of our trade contract partner, Dulux, who scoured its depots around the country in order to supply us at such short notice. We also decorated the newly-built 267-bedroom Premier Inn, a flagship for the hotel chain situated on the site. We applied a contemporary colour scheme throughout all the bedrooms, corridors and public areas in time for the opening in September. Our next work on the site will be to decorate Aspers Casino which is due to open by the end of the year.
