Chelsea Village



Chelsea Village is a single-storey sectional title development located in Northgate, Johannesburg that has been completely redecorated in partnership with Dulux and ProjectLab. The complex houses 88 individual units as well as a clubhouse facility. The project started at the beginning of June and ran for 3 months.

Being a slightly older development, more preparation was required. After the high-pressure cleaning of all surfaces had been carried out, significant plaster repairs were necessary. Moisture was also an issue and several of the walls had to be left to dry for an extended period before the level of moisture had decreased to a satisfactory level before painting was completed.

The body corporate also voted to have the colour scheme in the complex changed. After a consultation with Dulux and several colour options had been put forward to a vote, a combination of Castlewood Canyon and Stoneware was selected by a majority of the residents. 

The site was supervised by Bongani Dube, a long-serving employee of Thorn Painting Solutions. His team consisted on 1 plasterer and 12 painters, one of whom could double up as a plasterer where necessary. Bongani formed an excellent working relationship with the chairman as well as the maintenance trustee at Chelsea Village and this resulted in any issues being dealt with swiftly.
