SDC Builders - Cobalt Light Systems, Oxford

Project Details

After a successful tender process, Johns of Nottingham were awarded the internal decoration works at the ultra modern Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire. This new multi-million pound headquarters building will ultimately become the global centre for Raman Spectroscopy.

Due to the nature of the works that will be taking place within the building, it was imperative that Johns of Nottingham provided a healthy; professional and clean environment for Cobalt Light Systems to carry out their investigative works. These are essential for the day to day running of international airports all around the world.

As specified within the tender, Johns started to decorate all walls and ceilings around the building in a Diamond Matt finish. The skirtings, architraves and door frames were completed in a Satinwood finish. One of the eye catching features of the building was the main staircase in the atrium which was decorated in traditional looking Farrow & Ball modern emulsion.

As you can see from the associated image we were asked to create a rectangular feature to the selected walls in the transparent meeting rooms.

Included in the tender documentation was a request to use Dulux Paints on all substrates and complete the works within a 6 month period. Johns of Nottingham achieved this to the satisfaction of the client.
