Using Johnstone’s traded paint products, we decorated the full interior of this new building comprising partition walls and woodwork including areas of rigitone acoustic boarding, sealing of concrete walls / columns, oak in seminar rooms, spiral feature staircase, atrium staircase and various feature ceilings.

The 6-storey atrium courtyard and feature staircase are part of 10,000 square feet of new space and forms the final phase of the award winning Potterow development.

The building will be used as a new robotics laboratory, human conditioning laboratory, offices with breakout spaces, seminar rooms and a café.

This project used a diverse range of materials and finishes, including utilising our Story Offsite Spray Facility to deliver an exceptional project and create a building that is not only highly functional but architecturally stunning.
