Johnstone’s Ecological Solutions Wins at Oasis
Products from Johnstone’s Ecological Solutions range have ensured the new £24 million Oasis Academy MediaCityUK in Salford is provided with a sustainable and durable finish for years to come.
The ambitious new academy, which is located in the burgeoning Salford Quays area of the city, provides first-class facilities for all subjects on the National Curriculum as well state-of-the-art radio and TV production studios.
The Academy contains a wide variety of contrasting substrates, including new plastered and exposed concrete, softwood, metalwork, MDF and concrete floors, ensuring products from far and wide across the Johnstone’s Ecological Solutions product portfolio were utilised to give the facilities an impressive finish.
Johnstone’s Acrylic Durable Matt provided the new plaster and exposed concrete walls in high traffic areas with a durable and lasting finish, with Dry Lining Paint being used for the ceilings, while the exposed softwood was primed with Johnstone’s Acrylic Primer Undercoat and then finished with the Acrylic Satin, which was also applied to the MDF.
David Haselgrove from Aedas Architects said: “I cannot fault the support given by the Johnstone’s specification team. They were extremely pro-active, helping to put together specifications and providing paint samples quickly allowing us to sign off samples with the Academy in a constricted timeframe. I would have no hesitation in specifying Johnstone’s Ecological Solutions products again in the future.”
