Dulux Trade is celebrating after its products featured in three of the four winning projects at the Painting and Decorating (PDA) Premier Trophy Awards 2014.
The annual awards, which celebrate the diversity of skills, efficiency of service and innovative products within the industry, invite professionals to nominate their best work across a range of categories, including Commercial and Decorative.
Ambrose Ellis Painting Contractors Ltd was announced as the winner of the Commercial category for its redecoration of Lancashire County Cricket Club's Old Trafford ground. The project involved a revamp of the player's lounge and media centre, as well as the redecoration of the pavilion, which is a listed building. The contractor used Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt and Satinwood for excellent coverage and easy application.
Other successes came in the Small Contractor category, where S&C Painting Services Ltd scooped the top prize for its redecoration of London-based Fuller's Brewery; and the Decorative category, where H&S Decorating Specialists was celebrated for restoring the entrance, staircase and Grand Saloon of London's Theatre Royal to its original grandeur.
A number of Dulux Trade products were used throughout these projects, including Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell for the vaulted ceiling in Fuller's Brewery, which was matched with existing effects to provide a durable, high-quality finish. Both projects earned high praise from the clients and the decorating professionals were commended on their craftsmanship and careful consideration of colour.
John Staunton, Customer Marketing Manager at Dulux Trade, said: "Every year, the PDA Premier Trophy Awards demonstrate the outstanding level of craftsmanship and professionalism across the industry. All of the entries celebrated at this year's ceremony were of a first-class standard, and we're proud to have played a part in bringing to life some of the projects recognised."
