The Project

The program is split into 3 intricate phases to facilitate the education and understanding of the process.

Phase 1

Community Involvement

Selection of a rural community and school fit for the program. Finding an ideal spot for the trial and informing the 5 participants of what the program entails.

Phase 2

Prototype & Test

Prototyping the roof with fitting roof sensors into 2 separate structures; one with a white roof, the other with a red. Participants will monitor and record the roofs for 2 years to solidify results.

Phase 3

Hands On Training

Acquisition of the relevant tickets whilst completing work alongside qualified tradesmen. This includes writing and adhering to safety procedures, checking for electrical hazards or concerns, safe working at heights with scaffolding while edging, plumbing, roof maintenance and lastly painting of the white roof.

BRilliant Rural

Research & Planning

Recent research by Sustainable Townsville indicates that painting a roof white will reflect 85% of heat from the roof allowing cooling of the roof space to only a few degrees warmer than the outside temperature. Brilliant Brush Strokes have created a program to educate young individuals in rural areas with trades and skills they otherwise would not have access to.

The program incorporates an educational component within a selected school to trial, build and test a building before and after the construction, maintenance and application of white roof paint. This involves trades including electricians, roofers, scaffolders, plumbers and painters. Partnering with local trades, Brilliant Brush Strokes will facilitate the education of community members to apply in their future endeavours including safety procedures, data management, work ethic and community participation.

Community members will work alongside qualified and experienced tradesmen throughout the entire project to get hands-on education and training in a variety of vital trades for rural communities. These skills can then be used to enter the workforce starting their own business in a variety of fields including general maintenance, electrician, tree clearing to be bushfire ready, painting and many more. These services are vital for maintaining rural communities well into the future.

    “We rebuilt our family home a few years ago, it wasn’t just a renovation of an existing home but a rebuild plus the addition of another storey. Not a simple job but we required the personal “touch” that a house and home needs. So, Lyndon and his team of painters did a perfect job. I can only say; Brilliant Touch Ups. Brilliant Service. Brilliant Look!”
