Paddington Station First Class Lounge

The Project

A first class refurbishment, literally. Ashton Painting Contractors & Building Services Ltd were required to employ our usual high standards to decorate and refresh First Great Western’s first class lounge at Paddington train station.

Providing a premium service to first class customers requires the highest quality finish. To achieve this, First Great Western needed experienced tradesmen with a professional work ethic and attention to detail, and that’s exactly what we gave them.


This busy location is in operation 7 days a week, which required careful planning to avoid disruption. The solution was to carry out the work outside the normal working hours. Work began in the evening as the station came to a close, with the site staff finishing each section before the travelling public arrived to start their morning commute.


In addition to completing this project without disruption, the quality of the finish matched the standard expected of this prestigious first class facility.
