FM professionals can learn more about a powerful new aid to specification, at the Facilities Show, where Crown Paints will be showcasing its new online resource, PaintSpec Finder.™

Visitors to Crown Paints’ stand number L70 can view first-hand the benefits of using to deliver instant and technically-detailed specification plans for their projects.

The Facilities Show takes place between 15 and 17 May, at NEC Birmingham.

Vernon Kinrade, Specification Sector Manager at Crown Paints, said: “We have had many positive comments about how intuitive and user-friendly the service is, and its ability to filter through a great deal of technical information to pinpoint exactly what specifiers need for their chosen projects.

“Users are also very impressed with its ability to pull together the specifications into a report, with a personalised cover sheet showing the customer’s name, the project and the user’s own details, which is then all ready for users to hand to their client or add to their tender documents.”

As well as the launch of PaintSpec Finder,™ the Crown Paints team will also keep visitors to its stand up-to-date on the significant steps the company has taken to reduce its environmental impact over the last 12 months.

From there they can also see how the company’s portfolio footprinting initiative – which was launched last year and now charts the carbon footprint of all of Crown Paints’ products including Crown Trade, Sadolin and Sandtex Trade – is providing the company with sound data to review and drive down its own greenhouse gas emissions, with the target of a 10 per cent reduction in 2015 – and 25 per cent in 2020 as part of its ‘earthbalance’ initiative.

These two new targets are in addition to the company’s sustainability target of zero waste to landfill, which was originally targeted for December 2012 – and has already been achieved more than 12 months ahead of schedule.

Crown Paints’ work to date has already seen the company secure a Green Apple Award, from the Green Organisation, and a Sustainable Manufacturing Award from The Manufacturer magazine.
