A RESTORATION project to save one of the region’s most important historic buildings from ruin has won a major national award for Curtis Painting Group.
The industrial and commercial painting business has been named Supreme Winner of the Johnstone’s Painter of the Year competition for its work in bringing the world heritage site of Burton Manor, in Wirral’s Burton Village, back to its former glory.
Curtis Painting Group’s contracts manager Dave McCormick said key to the success of the entire project was the minute attention to detail paid by their specialist painters who worked with meticulous precision on the restoration of the once almost derelict building – all completed within the client’s 12-month timescale.
Dave said: “The expertise of 10 of our painters and two apprentices, working as part of an 80-strong team including joiners, plasterers and electricians, has now brought the Burton Manor conservation dream to reality.
“It’s been a wonderful experience to have been such an important part of the building’s transformation and to see it beautifully preserved for future generations.”
