International Hotel Group (IHG) Painting Works


Craftwork understands the importance of completing works with minimal disruption to the daily business of its clients. We also understand that security of a work site is an important consideration, as work is often completed after hours or on weekends. Craftwork works hard to ensure daily operations are maintained and has won the trust of one of Australia’s leading hotel chains, IHG Hotels to perform refurbishment works across the Sydney metropolitan area.


Craftwork conducted a refurbishment program for IHG Hotels, which includes the iconic Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Franchises, to deliver plaster repairs, and painting works to both internal and external surfaces of several hotels. This project included major guestroom and corridor refurbishment works which where undertaken within a tight schedule.  The programs of works were completed within a set time-line to minimize the impact on the Hotels revenue stream. 


During the course of the program Craftwork Painters where mindful that this was an operating Hotel and that Guests where still accommodated on other levels. All works where carried out after 9.00am and completed prior to 5.00pm to minimize noise within the Hotel and ensure all Guests had a pleasant stay.  Craftwork Painters were in full uniform, clean and hygienic at all times and ensured a safe working environment for other IHG staff members.  Painters were instructed not to use the guest lifts and walk through guest areas.  Our objective was to complete the works satisfactorily within the nominated time period but to remain inconspicuous to the Hotel guests. 


Craftwork also assisted IHG repaint their exterior surfaces.  The programs included various difficult aspects to complete within the OH&S regulations.  OH&S issues required the deployment of mechanical access, swing stages and fixed scaffolding.  Craftwork also arranged all associated Council Permit requirements, traffic controllers and adequate safety signage and barricades to ensure pedestrian and vehicle safety around the work site.

Car Parks Painting Works: Westfield Shopping Centres


Westfield Shopping Centres underwent a major upgrade to their car park internal surfaces which included new signage, line-marking, safety upgrades, ticketing and car parking guidance systems.

Craftwork was contracted to undertake the painting component of the upgrade to both the Chatswood & Hornsby sites.


Both works were undertaken simultaneously over a 4 month period starting from early August 2008 with a practical completion date of 1st December 2008.  There was no extension’s available so all works had to be completed prior to the due date.


The Painters undertook the works during out of hours to minimise disruption to customers, staff and car park vehicle traffic. Painting included spray application to the car park concrete ceiling surfaces using airless spray gun equipment, feature colours painting application to the concrete columns and wall surfaces to identify car park locations.  Safety Yellow paints where applied to the curbing areas to minimise trip hazards and all steelwork surfaces received specialised coatings systems to increase abrasive resistance to normal daily wear & tear.


During the program Craftwork utilised mechanical access equipment to reach the higher ceiling surfaces in accordance with the Occupational Health & Safety Act.  All car park areas where left in a clean and tidy manner upon completion of each night’s works for the following days trade.
