Creating smart environments for places of learning

Schools, colleges and universities are unique places. Their environment has to be conducive to learning and stimulating to the senses, yet durable enough to withstand a constant daily flow of heavy traffic. That presents severe challenges when choosing decorative products and colour schemes, and nobody is better placed than we are to help you meet those challenges.

We have a proven track record in the education sector. First and foremost, we understand the pressures you face to get the right result. We also understand how staff and students engage with the building, positively or otherwise. And of course we know how crucial it is for you to keep costs down by minimising the need for maintenance and redecoration.
