Design and Build Contractors – Paint Show 2018

Classic Design and Build have recently undertaken a project for Benjamin Moore at the Paint Show 2018. We were selected by Shaw paints, Benjamin Moore’s UK distributor, as their design and build contractors. This meant that Classic was responsible for organising the design of the exhibition as well as producing the finished exhibition.

What are design and build contractors?

Often when we are building exhibition stands for clients they have already produced a design for us to work to. When we are employed as a design and build contractors, however, we have to liaise with both the client and one of our freelance designers to create the image the client wants.

Shaw paints, the UK distributor of Benjamin Moore, came to us in late July with a design brief, the rest was left to us. For this particular exhibition, we used one of our main partners, Will Lennon. Will produced initial design renders going off the client’s design brief. The stands location within the halls and using their past stands for inspiration. As time went on, and over multiple conversations between ourselves and both the client and Will, we were able to achieve the finished design.



With the design complete and approved, it was down to Classic Design and Build to complete the construction phase of this project. Using a mixture of stock and bespoke items, we were able to create the finished exhibition.

As design and build contractors, it is vital that we transform vision into reality. This project is evidence of how we can make this happen. Together with Will, we have transformed a design brief into a working drawing, then into a bespoke exhibition stand.

The finished product is astonishing!
