Bagnalls won the Health & Education category at this year’s prestigious PPG Johnstone’s Painter of the Year awards. The Award ceremony, which took place on Saturday night at the famous Celtic Manor Resort, was particularly significant this year as Johnstone’s celebrated 125 years in paint. Paddy McGuinness, host of Take Me Out, compered the evening with his entertaining wit and charm and congratulated each of the prize winners as they accepted their awards.
Paul Curry, was presented with an award for the project direction and successful completion of the painting works at the £430m new build, 877 bed Southmead Hospital in Bristol. Bagnalls worked on the project for over two years and at times had up to 70 painters working on site, applying coatings to a PPG Johnstone’s paint specification. In total, 240,000 sqm of walls and ceilings were coated with PPG Johnstone’s Microbarr Acrylic Matt range.
Paul Curry, Regional Director for Bagnalls, said: “This project was a massive undertaking for Bagnalls. Excellent project management and quality workmanship from our painters resulted in a finish we are very proud of. We had the continued support of both Carillion and Johnstone’s throughout the project and together achieved an excellent finish in terms of colour, quality and infection control. Special thanks has to go to the Bagnalls Project Foreman, Steve Grinnell, who worked tirelessly to deliver all the project deadlines.”
