St Catherine’s PAINTING

 In 2014, Benchmark Painting, a reputable painting company, took on a monumental commercial painting project that left a lasting impact on the University of Western Australia’s (UWA) St Catherine’s College complex. Nestled in the picturesque riverside suburb of Crawley in the Northern Suburbs of Perth, St Catherine’s College has long been a cherished institution for students seeking an exceptional academic and residential experience. When Pindan, a large building contractor of St Catherine’s College, entrusted Benchmark Painting with the task of rejuvenating the student accommodation units, they knew it was a task that required precision, efficiency, and impeccable craftsmanship.

ABOUT St Catherine’s PROJECT

 St Catherine’s College has played a significant role in the educational landscape of Western Australia for over 100 years. It has not only been a place of learning but also a hub for fostering personal growth, camaraderie, and lifelong friendships. The college’s rich history and impact on the area made it all the more important for the painting project to be executed with the utmost care and attention to detail.

To meet the stringent deadline set by Pindan and ensure the painting was completed before the commencement of the new semester, Benchmark Painting had to efficiently balance resources and time. Pindan, known for its unwavering commitment to excellence, had high expectations for their contractors. Understanding the significance of the project, Benchmark Painting provided a dedicated team of 24 skilled painters, each appointed for their expertise and ability to work seamlessly together.

Completing such a substantial project required detailed planning and innovative techniques. Benchmark Painting utilised a blend of traditional painting methods and advanced working-at-heights equipment to transform every corner of the student accommodation units. Painting was required for all areas from internal spaces that required careful attention to detail to the external facades that demanded a fresh and vibrant look.

The transformation was completed just before the new semester began, the newly painted St Catherine’s College was met with excitement and approval from all parties involved. Pindan was particularly delighted with the outcome, as their vision for the college’s appearance was brought to life.

For UWA students, the impact of the painting project was more than just aesthetic; it greatly enhanced their living environment, creating a welcoming and inspiring atmosphere for the students to thrive academically and socially. Beyond the visible results, Benchmark Painting’s ability to complete the project on time and of high quality cemented their reputation as a reliable and trustworthy contractor in the Perth painting industry. The successful collaboration between Benchmark Painting, Pindan, and UWA showcased the power of teamwork and dedication in achieving satisfactory commercial painting outcomes.
