Many hands - High Street heritage programme
Combining the needs and desires of a varied group of stakeholders can be a perilous responsibility fraught with frazzled nerves and later, regretted compromises. In a shining example of community togetherness, the High Street Heritage Programme has brought together an extensive refurbishment programme in High Street, Christchurch culminating in a well deserved street party to celebrate the efforts of all.

The visual challenge was to have an entire street happy with the colour scheme - owners, tenants, the public and then have approval from the heritage conservators. This challenge was achieved with painted brickwork and plastered concrete finished in a first coat of Resene X-200 weathertight membrane followed by two coats of Resene Zylone 20 flat acrylic in varied heritage hues for a dead flat finish. With vast experience to draw on, Henrietta Savill satisfied a myriad of requirements with her fitting colour recommendations, ensuring that this set of neighbours could all exist in harmony as part of the same streetscape.
