This project, to refurbish Doncaster Station Concourse, was itself two years in the planning, before works commenced in June 2020 for Lorne Stewart.

The painting and decorating involved working within a live environment, with customers and Electrical Contractors working in close proximity to our painting works. Therefore, our work involved collaboration with the client and other stakeholders to ensure compliance with all method statement documentation and risk assessments.

Our Operative’s used hand tools for preparation and plastered various areas around the station.

Our CSCS qualified operatives’ hand prepped and painted the following areas: –

  • Concourse Ceilings – Prepared and applied two coats of Armstead durable matt emulsion.
  • Concourse Walls – Prepared and applied two coats of Armstead durable matt emulsion.
  • Wood Pelmets – Prepared and applied two coats of Armstead satinwood.
  • Various Woodwork and Metalwork – Prepared and applied one coat of Armstead oil-based undercoat and one coat of Armstead oil-based gloss

Access to the works was via fixed bird cage scaffolding, step ladders and GRP towers.

The bird cage scaffold was erected and maintained by Swale Scaffolding and their RAMS were incorporated into Jack Tighe Decorating Ltd.’s method statement and risk assessment documentation. All GRP towers were erected and checked by a competent trained Pasma operative and mobile towers were tagged before use.

Jack Tighe Decorating Ltd.’s personnel checked all equipment before the leaving the office ensuring all equipment was fit for purpose and suitable to task.

Access to site was from the overflow carpark on to platform two.

Operatives signed in and out at the Station Manager’s reception and attended the site induction. The work area had suitable signage displayed to warn of ongoing works and two metre guard barriers were used to prevent third party access where required. When leaving the work area all shift operatives cleaned up (hoover up dust, clean paint flakes etc) remove all materials & equipment from site.
