Cladding refurbishment project for established haulage and distributor, Arthur Spriggs in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.

Cladding Coatings is delighted to have recently completed a project for new client Arthur Spriggs & Sons Ltd based in Tewkesbury. Arthur Spriggs & Sons Ltd has been established since 1918 and provides its services to both local companies to national organisations.  Their services are comprehensive in their field of haulage and distribution and include Commercial Vehicle Services & Repairs, Mercedes and Isuzu Parts & Servicing, Transport Services, Supply Chain Solutions, Palletised Services, Warehousing and News.

They provide an outstanding service partly due to their commitment to the design, development & delivery of quality services whilst managing the potential harmful effects on their surroundings.

Arthur Spriggs made contact with the Cladding Coatings customer services team to enquire about our cladding services.  Following a discussion on the telephone we booked a site survey for one of our Assessors to meet with them at the location in question to assess the site and advise them on the work that needing to be done.

On arriving at the site in Tewkesbury, we found that Arthur Spriggs is a partner of Mercedes, this particular site is also a Mercedes garage.  From our inspection of the building we found the cladding to be tired and very dated and was a mismatch of variety of colours, we agreed with Arthur Spriggs, Facilities Manager that this wasn’t portraying the professional image a customer would expect from a Mercedes garage. Over time the premises already had refurbishment work completed which meant there was new cladding adjacent to the older cladding, which appeared unsightly and hadn’t been matched at all.

Following the survey we prepared a quotation and specification for the customer, they were happy with our price so we agreed a start date for the project.  Before the project started we agreed risk assessments and method statements with the Contract Manager at Arthur Spriggs .

The project included an initial clean, our team pressure washed the exterior cladding and gutters. We then removed any sealant on the cladding that looked untidy or needed replacing.  We then sprayed all the cladding with Dacrylate sb ral 9006, a product carefully chosen from our supplier Kenyons paint. Dacrylate is a thin oil based paint with properties enabling it to dry extremely quickly. The paint is available in a range of colours which was perfect for Arthur Spriggs to choose a colour  matching their company brand.

For the guttering we used a Dulux product called Metal Shield to coat all the gutters with, our team were able to apply this coating by brush and roller to give a neat and professional finish.

Once nearing completion we inviting the Arthur Spriggs team to review our work, we discussed and rectified a couple of areas where additional coating work was required and the customer was extremely happy with the finished result.
