Smith & Winfield have pulled on all its skills, resources and commitment to complete the painting and specialist coatings at The Arch Umhlanga, as the appointed subcontractor to WBHO on this iconic project.


From the first brushstrokes  in August 2018 , the R8 million project peaked with 90 workmen, applying high class finishes throughout, with Marmoran Specialised Coatings used to the exterior of the Hilton Hotel component, as well as interior feature walls, also using Paintsmith’s Limestone finish.

Our teams of applicators are trained to apply the range of Marmoran Decorative Coatings – finishes that will enhance any feature wall or provide a long lasting coating to your building.

The wide range of products available in many colours and techniques, provides endless opportunity for unique designs.

As an appointed Master Applicator our clients are ensured of a consistent quality job, underwritten by Marmoran’s guarantee.


Proven track record

Over 20 000 m2 of Marmoran’s Marmotex and Permacrete were applied by Smith and Winfield in interesting patterns and designs in a job completed in 1991

The performance of the coating way outlasted the 15 year guarantee.


A cost effective solution

We provided a uniquely designed coating system to cover existing deteriorated mosaic. This avoided costly stripping of the mosaic and replastering.


Breathing new life into an old building.

Marmoran’s Easyplast was the solution to rejuvenating and waterproofing the surfaces of this facebrick building. Finished with Marmoclad, the shades of cool greys bring the building into the modern era of buildings in the Umhlanga CBD.

We take care of the project management and co-ordination of all trades involved in the project.

As a painting contractor we are one of the last trades on every job, and control of preceding and parallel trades on minor contracts or where a main-contractor is not necessary, means that we are able to exert a greater influence over the quality and programming of trades upon which we are dependent.

Instead of appointing and coordinating multiple contractors, the client has one point of contact and we become responsible for the execution and completion of the various elements of subcontracted trades.

We choose to work with quality subcontractors, experts in their field who share the same commitment to quality and service and contribute proactively to the end goal.

We have successfully completed a number of contracts that require the input of contractors specialising  in ceiling and partitioning, tiling, carpentry, aluminium doors and windows, electrical, plumbing, waterproofing, bricklaying and plastering.

Our project managers have years of experience in the industry to ensure that all work is completed to the highest standards
