Decorators South London Teams That Understand The Challenges Of Working In Schools

Decorators South London can offer their professional services to the private or public sector; or indeed to both. However, the definition of the ‘public sector’ is very wide. Here, we specifically consider the challenges facing those painters and decorators who take on projects decorating schools and other public buildings.

With the current growth in the school sector needed to cope with the rising number of school-age children, the opportunities for painters and decorators London based companies to win commercial contracts in this sector are increasing. This comes at a time when other sectors are only slowly recovering. Free schools and academies can now employ their own contractors for new builds, refurbishment and maintenance contracts without reference to the Local Authority. In some respects, carrying out decorating work in schools is similar to commercial work in other sectors. Contractors need to be able to liaise effectively with designers and project managers; other trades such as builders and plasterers; as well as building owners and governors. They need to be able to form and use effective teams, just as is done with other commercial contracts. They will also need to produce the same high quality, durable finish on time and to budget. With schools, however, there are additional considerations, particularly where work such as maintenance contracts mean tasks need to be carried out in term time. A decorators London team that is working in schools will need to be fully DBS checked, fully trained, particularly aware of Health and Safety consideration and capable of working in positions of trust.
