Painting a Fitness Club in Kingston Around the Clock Without Breaking a Sweat

Speed, strength, endurance, deter­mi­na­tion, and meet­ing goals are all part of the gym expe­ri­ence. Well, ide­al­ly any­way. We’ve strayed from our New Year’s res­o­lu­tions here and there, but that’s life, right?

Those words above do, how­ev­er, describe our effort to paint the inte­ri­or of a fit­ness club in Kingston, MA. Our paint­ing mis­sion came with a very, very tight dead­line: com­plete inte­ri­or paint­ing in few­er than five days: Wednes­day through Sunday.

Why the rush?

This par­tic­u­lar club is locat­ed inside a large shop­ping mall. Because of the mall leas­ing con­tracts, we need­ed to quick­ly cre­ate a usable space and allow for a seam­less tran­si­tion between tenants.

What Did Our Work Involve? Every­thing From Qual­i­ty Prod­ucts to Lasers

Here’s a clos­er look at the paint­ing prod­ucts, ser­vices, and tech­niques that we put to work:

  • Paint­ing the Exposed Ceil­ing — As you can see in the pho­tos above, over­head is a lofty, indus­tri­al-style ceil­ing deck. To min­i­mize mess and match the pace of our tight sched­ule, we used a dry­fall paint prod­uct from Sher­win-Williams. Any over­spray dries instant­ly, falling to the floor like dust.
  • Met­al Door Frames and Columns — Because of the smooth nature of met­al, it requires more spe­cial­ized prod­ucts for suc­cess­ful adhe­sion. In this case, we used a DTM (Direct-to-Met­al) acrylic coat­ing. It dries quick­ly, resists cor­ro­sion, and offers a superb finish.
  • We also paint­ed sec­tions of CMU (con­crete block) wall. Paint­ing mason­ry is a dif­fer­ent process than paint­ing sheetrock or met­al, and it calls for unique and spe­cial­ized coat­ings. We chose one of our favorites: Sher­win-Williams’ Pre-Cat­alyzed Water Based Epoxy.
  • We patched and matched the fin­ish at the entrance to allow the new store­front to blend with the exist­ing mall.
  • Because sur­face prepa­ra­tion is a key com­po­nent of apply­ing a durable, last­ing coat­ing, we helped with dry­wall repair, tap­ing, and sanding.

For the sheetrocked walls we used a zero-VOC eggshell paint, also from Sher­win-Williams. Zero-VOC was a per­fect option for this project because it’s an envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly, low-odor paint. This means that you don’t need to air out the facil­i­ty before it can be used; as soon as the paint is dry, it’s ready for action.

The eggshell sheen was a pur­pose­ful choice as well. It offers some reflec­tiv­i­ty, but it also is a rugged, wash­able option that can be eas­i­ly touched up down the road as needed.

On anoth­er inter­est­ing note, we used a laser line to cre­ate crisp, flaw­less col­or breaks. This is just anoth­er exam­ple of cre­ative­ly using tech­nol­o­gy to offer real val­ue to our clients.

Cross­ing the Fin­ish Line in Style

Thanks to our fan­tas­tic team and sched­ul­ing flex­i­bil­i­ty, we met our dead­line. This fit­ness club is ready for use and in bet­ter shape than ever.
