Bath Spa University College - Decorative

Bagnalls achieves the high standards of painting and decorating required at Bath Spa University College. Our highly decorative skills required for the restoration of listed and period properties have been recognised by The Painting & Decorating Association (PDA). One notable project involved the refurbishment and restoration of the staircase to its original specification and colour scheme. The major restriction placed on the operation was that the staircase had to remain open at all times to allow access to staff and provide a fire escape in an emergency. To maintain this requirement a fixed birdcage scaffold was erected for the works to dome level and small mobile access towers with link platforms were used from ground to first floor levels. The colour and finish required were specially designed to reflect a colour scheme in keeping with the period of the building. The metal balustrading required a specific dark grey finish, which after many trials with various shades was achieved by the careful blending of colours.
