University Of Edinburgh Cladding Repair and Respray

University of Edinburgh contacted Buckingham Coatings in hope we would be able to complete a repair and respray to some internal cladding panels whilst following the special requirements. We made this possible by changing some of our products and routine to suit this without letting it effect our work process and the way in which the work progresses. 

Project Spec

Commencement date: December 2019

Completion date: January 2020

Labour: Two operatives for two weeks

Scope of Works

To repair panels

To respray panels using hygiene coating

Method & Special Requirements

Works in contained labs that contain no external ventilation, this meant that specialised extraction was required to control fumes during the spraying of the panels. 

Suiting special requirements

This project came with some special requirements such as using hygienic products, to adhere to this we decided to complete our works in a contained lab that has no external ventilation meaning it has specialised extraction to control the fumes when we were completing spraying the cladding panels after repair. Due to us following the rules of the hygienic coating we had to use specialist paint which was water based this was to ensure the safety of our operatives and others in the building. We always have to prioritise the safety of the public and the people surrounding the area where the work is taking place, this can mean adapting our products and method to suit the situation.

Working in Edinburgh University

Completing a project at the University Of Edinburgh was amazing for Buckingham Coatings as it is such a well known place that many people aspire to attend one day, at Buckingham Coatings we are aware of the requirements that come with food safe panels and we know how to achieve those requirements correctly and in the best way possible. We use non-toxic coatings that offer a high level of resistance to pink and black mould but we still maintain our coatings to be easy to clean and hold high levels of durability.
