Paint from Crown Trade’s Clean Extreme and Fastflow ranges has been used on a prestigious new creative industries hub in Carmarthen called Canolfan S4C Yr Egin, which is also home to Welsh national broadcaster, S4C as well as a range of companies working in the creative and digital sectors.
The new development, constructed for the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD), has been designed as a base for a range of creative, digital and cultural companies in Wales. Welsh language national broadcaster S4C is the main anchor tenant having relocated its headquarters from Cardiff.
One of the key aspects of the new building, which is situated on UWTSD’s Carmarthen campus, is that its many facilities, including a cafe, auditorium and performance stages, are will be made available for the wider community to enjoy. It was vital, therefore, that the interior paintwork in high traffic areas such as the corridors and other common spaces was long-lasting and low maintenance.
Mid Glam Decorators, the main decorating contractor for Yr Egin, requested to change the original paint specification from a competitor’s equivalent durable paint in favour of Clean Extreme Stain Resistant Scrubbable Matt and Fastflow Quick Dry Gloss.
Over the course of eight months the team of decorators painted the whole of the interior of the new three storey building including offices, corridors, common areas and the auditorium.
Crown Trade Clean Extreme Stain Resistant Scrubbable Matt, was applied to all the interior walls while Fastflow Quick Dry Undercoat and Gloss was applied to the interior woodwork.
