This Premier Inn was decorated throughout by the Story Team including its 80 bedrooms, bar and restaurant, communal areas and the back of house sections.

The team applied Dulux Diamond Matt emulsion throughout to ceilings and walls and Dulux  Satinwood to all woodwork.

Tektura wallpaper was also applied to the feature wall areas and corridors.

We were also asked to coat the floors in the refuse areas and used a 2-pack floor paint for longevity.

Finally, Dulux metal shield gloss was applied to metalwork in the stairwells and demarcations were completed in the car park areas to the steelwork and walls.

This project was carried out over a 20-week period through the winter and at its peak had up to 15 operatives on site for the Story Team.
