Kents Hill Park

An award-winning project – delivered two months ahead of schedule

ESK won the PDA’s Premier Trophy Awards Competition 2006, which gave national recognition for redecorating Accenture’s Training and Conference Centre in Milton Keynes.

Fighting off fierce competition from around the UK, we wer extremely proud to receive a ‘very highly commended’ accolade in the commercial category of the Painting and Decorating Association’s (PDA) Premier Trophy Competition.

This award was given for the refurbishment of this large centre that was originally owned and operated by BT. The judges were senior PDA members who carefully considered the merits of numerous entries.

The project which involved internal repairs and redecoration, was scheduled to take place between May and December. However  our  typical dedication delivered this project completion two months early. Each building within the complex remained in full use for the duration of the works which covered:

  • 320 hotel bedrooms
  • sports and leisure centre which included a swimming pool
  • three office blocks
  • training rooms
  • restaurant and bar
  • atrium (above the restaurant)

By working closely with the centre’s management team our project manager overcame the inevitable issues that arise in such a large project such as accessibility and last-minute schedule changes.
