CASE STUDY

Eton College Library

The Eton College Library

Project:

Eton College School Hall Library

Client:

Eton College

Contractor:

AC Beck

Contract value:

Confidential

Programme:

Very Strict 6 weeks

Services:

The Repair and Redecoration to the Internals of the Eton College School Hall Library.

Challenges:

Nothwistanding the extremely tight programme period we also had to construct an internal birdcage scaffolding and dismantle this within the six weeks. This meant that we only had four weeks to carry out the works as well as the painting we also had to accommodate the specialist stain glass window company. All trades coordinated the works as a team and the project was completed to schedule and on time. We applied a specialist highlighted colour around the mouldings to the dome area which was in colours chosen following extensive samples offered up. The overall effect was welcomed by the client and complimented all round.

Results:

Dulux paints were used being both durable and colour consistent, ideal for the purpose. The effect when standing in the centre of the Library is very calming as would be expected.

Feedback:

"A big thanks from the College to Malcom and the team, with many positive reviews."
