Our Work On The New Chorley Youth Zone

We’ve worked on several community projects in the past, including transforming old and underused buildings into fun and vibrant youth centres, as well as working on new builds. In 2016 we worked on a youth zone called ‘The Hive’ in Wirral, and our latest youth centre project was a completely new build located in Chorley.

Aptly named by the youth of Chorley as ‘Inspire’, this building is a purpose built facility for the town’s young people aged between 8-19 and up to age 25 for those with disabilities. The aim of this project was to design a space that reflected the purpose of the centre – to create a creative, happy, and safe environment for the younger generation. Through our commercial interior painting and decorating services we helped contribute to the development of this fantastic building.

Chorley Youth Zone offers a range of activities to improve the wellbeing and prospects of the young people of Chorley, from sports and drama to music, arts, and employability workshops. Each area of this building should have a fun and inviting atmosphere to inspire young people, and the way in which the building is decorated plays a huge part in this.

The building needed to be contemporary, sleek, and vibrant in its decor and we used a variety of painting and decorating methods to achieve this look. Chorley Youth Zone was a big project in terms of both the size of the building and the duration of works, as it took place over four months between December 2017 and April 2018. The unveiling of this amazing building will be on the 5th May.

Here are some of the commercial interior painting and decorating methods we used to help make buildings such as Chorley Youth Zone the inspirational building that it is.

As with all of our commercial painting projects, we focused on achieving a high quality and even finish to the interior of the building. On this project, we completed all of the internal works to the basement, ground floor, first floor, sports hall, and reception. The main service we provided was commercial painting and we used a variety of bright and vivid colours, covering small rooms to large halls.

Chorley Youth Zone is a large building and in order to carry out large scale projects, it’s essential to have the appropriate training and equipment. To work on the high, difficult to reach areas of the building, our team used powered access equipment such as scissor lifts and mobile towers. Our painting and decorating team are appropriately qualified in IPAF and PASMA to ensure they can safely and effectively use this equipment.

To achieve a sleek, flawless, and contemporary look, we used certain painting techniques such as HVLP painting which gives a clean, even finish. HVLP painting is ideal for painting small areas with precision.
