Our Favourite Projects

The Monks Cross Shopping Centre

One of our most memorable contracts was with the Monks Cross Shopping Centre in Huntington. We carried out high-quality decorative maintenance to the structural steelwork on the front of the buildings. Using skill, signage and careful planning, our team was able to carry out all work safely, whilst the shopping centre remained fully operational and open to the public!

Our Favourite Projects

St Peter’s School

We also have a long-standing relationship with St Peter’s School in York, spanning over 30 years. We’ve undertaken varied decorative works for them over the years, so much so that we’ve probably painted everything at least once! Every year, our skilled York team visits the school, led by the same knowledgeable supervisor. This provides the school with a friendly face as their point of contact and enables us to work quickly and safely to an established programme. We love carrying out important work for St Peter’s and hope our relationship continues for another 30 years!
