Villa Victoria II

Villa Victoria II is a small residential complex off Bellairs Drive in Northriding. Thorn has completed the painting redecoration project after working in partnership with Plascon and Curasure. Plascon has been a long-term associate of the company and this is the first time in a long time that we have had the pleasure of working together with Curasure, who handled the quality assurance on behalf of the trustees. The complex houses 43 single-storey units, which were painted over a 3 month period.

There was a significant amount of preparatory work undertaken on certain courtyard walls as well as parapet walls with delaminating plasterwork literally falling off the wall. Crazed cracking was also highly prominent throughout and the specification called for a waterproofing compound to be applied with a thickness of 1000 microns on all horizontal surfaces as this was not done correctly by the previous contractor.

The trustees also settled on a new colour scheme and this has given Villa Victoria II a significant upgrade. The contrast between the main walls and the trims has also turned out extremely well.

The site supervisor for the project was Simon Ndlovu, who has been a Site Supervisor at Thorn Painting Solutions for the past 5 years, having been promoted from painter in 2012. His team is made up 10 painters and 1 general plasterers and the trustees were very impressed with the quality of their workmanship on site. Well done Simon!
