In October 2012 GR Painters were contracted to freshen up the external steelwork to the ASDA store in Perth, Scotland. The work duration lasted for approximately 4 weeks but proved very challenging as the store was open for 24 hours a day and attracted 60,000 customers a week through its doors.
The main steel A frame structure enclosed the entrance to the store so this had to be cordoned off in sections while work was carried out. Pre-planning alongside the principal contractor “HB Contracts” and the store management were essential to provide a safe working environment, not only for GR Painter & Decorators staff but also and more importanlty, the general public.
A pressure wash clean down was carried out to all steelwork and 2,000 panes of glass were individually masked up before we then applied 2 coats of “Steel and Clad” semi gloss finish through HVLP spray equiptment. Both the entrance A frame and the store canopy`s where painted during the contract.
In store work was carried out on the Bakery and Deli ceilings via Airless spray coating.
