Under an agreement with L&Q, leading UK paint manufacturer, Crown Paints, has developed and monitored customised painting schedules for around 3,000 homes, helping the housing association deliver a safe, secure and high standard of accommodation for its residents.

As the preferred specialist paint supplier, Crown Paints has prepared detailed specifications for exterior and internal communal areas within a cross-section of L&Q’s homes. To develop these programmes, Crown Paints’ expert specification team carefully examines each scheme’s external substrates, analysing existing coatings used, as well as factors such as building orientation, environmental hazards and overall condition.
For internal communal areas, such as main entrances, corridors and stairwells, which are required to comply with Class 0 for fire safety (as defined in Section B2 of Approved Document B of the UK Building Regulations), the team undertakes flake analysis tests on each substrate and develops a specification using the Crown Trade Timonox range of flame retardant coatings. This personalised specification is designed to ensure surfaces are brought in line with necessary fire safety legislation.

In addition to developing bespoke painting programmes, Crown Paints has delivered ongoing support to the association’s property services team via monthly meetings and workshops. Ross McCartney, Head of Asset Management at L&Q, explained: “Our monthly meetings with Crown Paints help ensure we’re delivering value for money and the best possible service to our residents.

“During these meetings, Crown Paints provides updates on new products and initiatives within the company, and advises us on emerging legislation and focuses in the sector.” Most recently, Crown Paints delivered a presentation on sustainability to the association, outlining how recent enhancements and developments within the company could, in turn, support L&Q in improving its own environmental credentials. “As a result of this presentation, we have re-examined our practices when it comes to painting programmes, and we now recycle our empty packs and cans via Crown Decorator Centres,” added Ross.

Crown Paints also supports L&Q in ensuring all painting projects are completed to the highest possible standard. Ross continued: “Crown Paints’ specification experts conduct regular site inspections to quality check work and verify specification compliance. They also help us assess and monitor benchmark properties.”
One of the latest projects undertaken as part of the partnership is the refurbishment of three tower blocks in Lewisham Park, South London. During the project, over 3,000 litres of Crown Trade Timonox will be used in the internal redecoration of the properties.
