Damaged metal cladding panel repair at new Costa
Plastic Surgeon Scotland was called in to rectify areas of damage caused to the canopy of Scotland’s first drive-through coffee house; managing to make good small scratches and dents in the deep red cladding panels ready for the official opening.
Two of the company’s highly trained Finishers spent four days at the new Costa Coffee concept on the banks of Loch Lomond, carrying out detailed repairs and colour matching them to make the panels appear as new. Plastic Surgeon was called in by Marshall Construction, an established client for its specialist services, when accidental damage caused by other sub-contractors resulted in unsightly marks across the canopy and other areas to the cladding.
Plastic Surgeon’s Regional Manager for Scotland recounts: “This was a new build project for Costa where tradesmen using ladders and access platforms had put minor dents or scratches in a dozen of the cladding panels around the canopy and other parts of the elevation. Unfortunately they were finished in Costa’s corporate red colour and showed up quite badly so, Marshall Construction, a contractor specialising in restaurants and other leisure projects, asked us to do the work required to put them right prior to handover.
“The Finishers used two part fillers to bring the repairs back slightly proud of the surface before rubbing them back smooth. Although the individual areas of damage were no bigger than a 50 pence piece, because the canopy is so visible, it was necessary to respray the whole of each 1200 mm long panel, which we did using our HVLP (high volume-low pressure) spray guns. It was a very successful job despite being a very busy site in quite an exposed location.”
