Marconi Building - Chelmsford

AJ Painting & Decorating were honoured to be asked to decorate this beautiful grade II listed building in Chelmsford Essex.

The Marconi Building, named after Guglielmo Marconi, built in 1912 was the world’s first purpose-built radio factory.

These days it is home to Benefit Cosmetics a quirky, well loved, international cosmetics brand.

Our client asked us to decorate the stairwells, walls, feature walls and ceilings using white and various shades of pink to match their brand image.

The project took just 5 weeks to complete. The staircases being the most intricate due to the beautiful chandelier in the centre. Scaffolding was erected around the chandelier to prevent any damage but allowing our painters to reach the highest points safely.

We used Dulux and Farrow and Ball paints to achieve the finished result.
